Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: babaracas on 11-27-2010

This saison pours hazy to clear straw in color with notes of honey and tropical fruit. Flavor has tropical fruit with a lemony bitterness and hints of clove in the finish. Sorachi Ace and Citra hops add lots of flavor to this small, sessionable beer.

On tap at the brewery. Poured into a tasting glass.

A: Clear straw yellow color. I would have thought this would be a bit cloudy, but I digress. Small pure white head, nice retention and lace.

A: Belgian yeast, light malts, and small citrus. Absolutly no hint of alcohol.

T: Again, much of the same. Yeasty malts, with a small earthy hop profile. The yeast is distinct and welcomed. Finishes dry.

M: Light body, good carbonation. Pretty crisp and clean.

O: Nice, light session strength saison. One that I would love to have a few of by the pool or the ocean. Skal. (569 characters)

On tap in the tasting room presented with a hazy straw colored snifter with a small ring of shuts bubbles around the walls
Smell is all saison yeast
Taste is tart saison yeast with a hidden sweetness getting beat back anytime it shows its face
Mouthfeel is light and drying very crisp
Overall this right after guava grove makes it seem like the little brother but he holds his own and quite nice. (400 characters)

One of the better saisons I've tried. I ordered it at cigar city in my quart to take home, didn't even try a sample before I did.

poured into a very nice cigar city snifter glass from the growler. poured a very heavenly golden light straw color with BIG bubbles floating up. tiny thin head, not foamy. went away quickly to nothing.

I will tell you exactly what I taste but it will not be specific cause I am not sure what I'm tasting. It tastes like a popular ESB to me. It has a funky bitterness to it but easy to drink! Almost has a nuttiness to it like an octoberfest too. These are the things I taste. mouthfeel is outstanding. alcohol of course is 4% so no hit from there. Not a beer you would gulp down but one you could really enjoy slowly. that bitter aftertaste you get from it, does go away very nicely so you can enjoy your next sip.

Overall, great beer. recommended! try it! (890 characters)

Draft. Pours a slightly hazed yellow color wih a snow white head. Nice lace left on the glass as the head settles. Aroma is banana and clove and slightly sweet. The taste has a nice citrus lemon quality along with the Belgian notes of banana and clove. Some minimal hop bite to it. Light/medium mouthfeel. This is a really nice drinking beer being well balanced and not too high abv where you can enjoy it all day. (414 characters)

A table strength saison in the CCB tasting room brewed on their pilot system. Served in a pint glass, a hazy light amber with small foamy white head that left a few spots of lace on the way down. Smell: decorative soaps, light spicy hops, apricot, a little hay, pils malt, and a hint of banana. Taste: base of light pils malt, relaxed spicy hopping, clove and lemon. Not-unpleasant steely note towards the end of the sip is more a function of feel than taste. Not the most involved saison in their lineup but a tasty session option.

Had this on-tap and from a growler. Given the opportunity to warm up from tap temp it opens up nicely...more hay/grain, less soap. (664 characters)
