Sampled at the new Lost Abbey Brewery this past weekend
Pours a hazy light orange with a small white head with very fine bubbles. Seems like low carbonation for a saison.
Smell is pleasant, a little spice mixed with a good malt presence. Not as much fruity esters as other saisons, could have been fermented on the lower temperature spectrum for a saison.
Very pleasing and refreshing taste. A fair amount of spiciness but not overpowering, a hint of sweetness, malt and yeast.
This would be a great beer on a nice warm spring/summer day, or any day in San Diego. Wouldn't appeal to much to me in the cold desert during the winter.
Serving type: on-tap

750 ml bottled 6/10/2013. Poured into Lost Abbey Teku, reviewed live.
A - Burnt orange with a slight haze. Small white head that dissipates a bit too fast, but does leave solid lacing while it sticks around.
S - Intense orange peel and fruity Belgian esters. Don't get any ginger that Lost Abbey describes, little to no funk/acidiy.
T - Bitter orange, peppery phenols ov a sweet malt backbone. Earth hops in the background, very slight alcohol presence. The ever so slightest lemon acidity shows up as it warms.
M - Medium bodied, high carbonation, drying finish with a lasting pepper linger.
