3.98/5 rDev +8.2%
On-tap at the brewery. 5.8%
Served a fairly clean golden color with a bright white head that faded into a good collar leaving wispy, spotty lace. I get notes of peppery Belgian spices, cloves, citrus and bubblegum yeast on the nose. Flavors include all of those plus some cracked grains and earthy hops in the finish. Yeast is earthy, and I might detect a hint of mint? Mouth is slightly bitter but definitely refreshing, drying, and clean all around. I loved the flavors in this one and thought it was a solid saison.

Reviewed from notes; originally 9/17/11.
Appearance is a cloudy orange color with two fingers of white head.
Bubblegum with some hints of peppercorn, and some clove.
Follows the nose with bubblegum, clove, black pepper and some cracked grain notes.
Light bodied wuth moderate carbonation and a prickly feel.
Pretty nice and certainly refreshing but the bubblegum is a little overwhelming.

Draft at Small Bar in San Diego.
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that very slowly fades into a lasting ring. Large spots of lace left behind.
Earthy aroma with subtle zesty spice countering funky saison yeast, bread and light fruit notes. Hints of clove, banana, apple, pear, straw and grass.
Medium bodied with a nice balance of subtle, earthy funk, zesty spice and light fruit. Hints of grass and straw along with some pear and banana. Spices are there for balance but done subtly. Could use more funky yeast instead of the strong bread character that it possesses but its still refreshing and drinkable with a well masked ABV.

1.5 finger head with nice amount of lacing. Hazy golden body
S: nice Belgian yeast and sweet aroma with some peppery notes but overall mild.
T: not very sweet in the flavor. Actually a little bland. Mostly just the standard Belgian yeast and light lemony flavor.
M: light to medium body and light carbonation. Bubbles a little in your mouth in the finish.
Overall: a disappointing saison. Definitely doesn't compare to the others in the genre.

Note: Also had on tap at The Blind Tiger NYC. Poured into a tulip.
A: Hazy amber, with a quick paper white head.
S: Airy and effervescent. Pilsner malt and citrus, with a definitive belgian spice aroma.
T: First flavor profile is of plum, corriander, wheat, and cherry. Second notes are of apple, fig, pilsner malt and candied belgian sugar. A bit sweet and slightly sour, with a dry finish.
M: Light body, with high carbonation.
O: More of a summer time beer than when i had it in january in NYC. Complex flavor profile, but still refreshing and light. A really good beer.
#2 of my saison quest.

Had this on tap at Blind Tiger Ale House. It poured with a light amber with a large foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. It has a pretty dull nose with note of floral spices and a bit of apricot. The taste had a touch of funk good tart fruits and a touch of roasted malts for good measure. Crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation. I would be able to enjoy this over and over. Kind of like Domain DuPage. Good effort!

In the 16 oz tulip. Attractive golden amber color with very nice lacing. Tart and spicy. Starts with a good dose of sweetness. Hops come on with a modest biterness. Ends on a dry and scratchy note. The malt is quite pleasant with the light body and makes for good drinkability, if less intrigue.
Not a bad Saison. A more watery and quaffable version than most. Great with hot shrimp and sausage gumbo at Local Habit in San Diego. Like throwing gasoline on the fire.

On-tap at Idle Hands, New York, NY
A: The beer is hazy golden yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and left lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of floral hops in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has flavors of floral hops—marigolds seem to stand out in particular. Notes of spices are also noticeable, while the finish has hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a short finish.
O: The beer is refreshing and very easy to drink but it lacks complexity in the taste and could use a bit of sourness in the nose.

On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente
A: Clear light brown color with a 1/2 finger bone white head.
S: Definitely has a bit of spiciness along with a rich nutty smell. Some faint malts as well.
T: Not much about this beer screams "saison" to me, but it's pretty solid. Toasted nuts, caramel, a bit of ginger and indistinguishable spices and some roasted malt. Very drinkable.
