World of Beers - UCF, Orlando. Musty yeasty aromas with sweet malts. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a thick white head. Funky malty with citrus notes and sweet bready malts with spicy yeast flavors, coriander and nutmeg with hints of cinnamon. Clean refreshing finish. Great session brew!!!!

On-tap at Rattle ‘n Hum, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down and left some lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of lemon and nondescript malts in the nose.
T: The taste has some initial hints of sweetness and is followed by flavors of bready and grainy malts along with lemon from the Sorachi Ace hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
O: This is an average saison but has some interesting properties imparted by the Sorachi Ace hops.

Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Light copper color, fairly clear. Medium head.

A: Belgian yeast aroma, with some apples in the background. Not a bunch of the typical banana aroma though. Overall seems a bit muted.

T: Mildly fruity flavor (bit more banana here) over yeasty belgian flavor. Some more lemon flavor as it warms somewhat.

M: Light bodied and low carbonation.

O: I went into this with high hopes. Honestly, though, it really struck me as a purely average saison. Nothing bad or off-putting, but nothing exceptional. In this area where St. Somewhere brews are available, they need to have brought more to the Table *rim shot*

Growler courtesy of markwise, shared at the March iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Pours a dusty bronze color, neither clear nor quite opaque. Aroma is wheaty with pale malts and a nonspecific tart fruitiness. flavor is similar, banana esters recall hefeweizen, while watery maltiness proves somewhat refreshing. Somewhat tart but not crisp on the finish. Drinkable but more wheat/blonde than saison.

Pours a pale yellow with a finger sized off white head that laces well.

Aroma is light tropical fruits with a good dose of spice lots of peppery notes. Nose is not really funky as some Saison's but still nice and refreshing.

Taste is like the nose bready malts with lots of fruity notes. Lots of spice here big on pepper notes mixed with some lemon grass.

Mouthfeel is spot on for style light carbonation is a little mellow but I like that.

Overall not a complex Saison but very thirst quenching and tasty. Would not mind having this on my table every night while its warm out. It would be perfect if it was a little funky but not complaining.
