Bottle from Whole Foods in Berkeley, CA
Bottled in November 2011
Poured into a standard pint glass
A pour, including the yeast sediment, produces a cloudy, pale golden-colored body, with a 1.5cm head that is off-white in color. Head retention is fairly poor, with minimal lacing along sides of glass.
Aroma is shaped by brewer's yeast, unbaked bread dough, and very light herbal component (esters from the yeast and perhaps the wheat and rye malts).
Taste begins with some yeast and bread dough flavors, gradually involving a bit of Belgian yeast esters, sweetness from lighter malts, and bitterness mixed with pale lemon flavors (probably from hops). Good, if not particularly complex.
Beer is medium-bodied, with high enough levels of carbonation to lead to an initially crisp mouthfeel, after which the beer foams up on the palate and comes across as somewhat creamy. Finish is semi-dry.

1 PT. 6 FL.. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Bottled April 2013
A - It is pale yellow in color and hazy. There are small particles of yeast suspended in it. It is topped with a couple inches of white head.
S - It has a nice fresh lemon scent. I also detect a little must.
T - The taste has some lemon and grass flavors. Then some bitterness sets in. At first I thought the bitterness was too much for this beer, but after half a bottle the flavors are meshing well.
M - Medium.
O - This is a refreshing saison. It hits the spot after working in a near 90° day. The bitterness is more than I care for in this style, but it is not overwhelming and compliments the lemon and must, so I won't complain.
