I'm thrilled that a local brewery has a saison as one of its flagship beers, and it's odd that I'm just now getting around to reviewing it. Tasted 4 February 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a pale golden straw yellow, lightly hazed, with soft, almost grayish tones. Half-finger of white head, okay retention and lacing.

Smell is buoyant, fruity, and floral, with an almost-enough dose of funk. Orange peel peeks through, complementing the general citrusy flowery drifts. But it's juicy as well, and has a pleasant earthy funk. Hard to describe, sitting more in the realm of flowers, but solidly saisony.

Taste is good, but lacking depth and complexity. Big and pungent, rocking me with flowers, sweet fruit (peaches!), and grain. Quite peachy, actually, with that melt-in-your-mouth juiciness. I like it. Fades to a soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel is fine, if a touch on the flat side. Medium-bodied, expansive and mouth-filling. Just a prickle of carbonation, though.

A solid, tasty saison. Now that I know it, I plan to make this a regular purchase. The best 6-pack saison I can think of around here.

I had this on-tap while I was in Minneapolis. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with half a finger of off white head. The head fades to a layer on top of the pour with some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Yeasty up front with some banana and bubble gum notes. This one seems to be rather light and crisp.

Taste: Light and very yeasty with strong banana and bubble gum notes. I'm also getting some citrus fruit as well as a floral note. The finish is fruity and full of yeast.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with aggressively tingly carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: I wouldn't have guessed this was a saison if I didn't know the game. Reminds me more of a hefe. I don't think I'd have another, but it was a decent beer.

A random scored from a recent trip to Minnesota...

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden colour, finger of head with some retention and no real lacing.

S - Scent is dominated by sour citrus rind, orange notes, bready wheat and grassy notes on the finish.

T - The citrus and orange notes come through alongside the bready wheat flavours. Some sour grassy hop bitterness comes through on the finish.

M - Lighter bodied ale that goes down smooth and finishes dry.

O - A tasty saison that offers a hint of citrus on the finish. Nothing mind blowing, but certainly enjoyable.
