The Beers of California
Bottled Date: None
A: Liquid sunshine with amber hues in poor light. Sticky and fluffy white foam made up of variable sized bubbles. Lacey cling on the glass.
S: Solid grain with highlights of rounded spice, honey, banana, and bright fruit. Some faint alcohol vapors appear as the beer warms.
T: Banana, apricot, and crisp apple open and quickly transitions to a grainy malt foundation. The funky middle gives way to a spicy bitterness and hints of phenol. The bitterness builds to the finish and is joined by alcohol warmth.
M: On the light side with good syrupy linger and carbonation.
O: A bit more daring with more pronounced flavors when compared to Dupont. A respectable American take on the Saison sporting more hop bitterness and a higher ABV, but in the end I'll be reaching for the Belgian touchstone.
