4.38/5 rDev +11.5%
Bottle poured into a HF stem.
Pour: Mostly clear pale gold body with a billowing three plus finger white head. Head is very fluffy, leaves solid lacing, and the hangs around.
Smell: Quite a solid bit of funk up here!!! Some sweet bread and a light lemony citrus. A little bit of honey.
Taste: Lemon zest bite up front, followed by a light biscuity sweetness and funk throughout. A light pepper on the finish.
Mouthfeel: This is so incredibly refreshing. A light clean tartness, and a lighter breadyness that packs so much flavor for sure a drinkable beer.
Overall: A beautiful easy drinker, and maybe my new favorite in the table beer category. Very, very nice.

A: Poured a cloudy straw, deepish yellow color with good carbonation and a nice white cap which fades leaving some light bubbles and a little white ring circling the glass
S: Wheat, lemon zest, dash of salt and light barnyard
T: Immediate lemon zest, barnyard with a pronounced barnyard but no funk, more like hay and light horseblanket. The finsh has a light, lingering bitterness with a lemon drop and hay note to finish it off
M: Light bodied, little booze, very effervescent with a good amount of citrus and wheat setting up camp on the palate
O: Good. Easy drinking and well rounded.

Bottle from Made in Oregon.
Ommegang chalice. Dusty, golden straw body. Flimsy white head.
Smell is bit unexpected & quite awesome. Mild lemon-lime citrus rind, wheat, & sour candy upfront. A dusty, sweet herbal quality, sort of like woodruff syrup.
A little twang, a little itchy wheat. More wheat then anticipated. Lemon juice & dusty bread. Aerosol. Bitter greens & saline on the finish.
Spritzy carbonation. Subtle bitterness. Lovely acid, & just dry enough.
Really refreshing. Why does this have to be $10 a bottle?

Imbibed at Good Karma on 10/26/12.
Pours a hazy, tawny gold with a billowy white head that laces well. Aroma is mildly spicy (pepper, clove), mainly lemon and wheat. Flavor is a little subdued and the feel is a little light because of the low ABV. Lots of peanut and cashew with a slightly tart wheat flavor. Hops are floral and light, leaving a pleasant aftertaste. This is what I imagine a farmer would want after a hard day's work. Very flavorful, but doesn't knock you on your ass. Digging the recent trend towards flavorful session beer.

Pours a cloudy yellow, fizzy foamy head. Dry, grassy, almost winey at first followed by malty notes that remind you it's beer not wine. Yeast in the finish as well. I like Tank 7, but this seems more quaffable because it is not so sweet. Very refreshing. Would buy again.

A: Pours a massive overflowing head in my tulip glass. Lacing on the sides of the glass evident. Body of the beer is hazy and straw pale malt yellow.
S: Aroma of lemon rind, mustiness, pale malts, Czech/Noble hops, some fruit blossoms and a french saison yeast. I have brewed a few saisons with very similar aroma that were not at all hard to brew.
T: Starts off with a pronounced lemon rind flavor , a bit of coriander and some mustiness. The flavors are really more lemon and lightly flavored pale malt than anything else. I suspect the temperatures did not get as high as I prefer to make my Saisons that I put into the 90's in the early to mid summer to pronounce its flavors.
M: The body is light and fluffy with a ton of carbonation. Too much, however this was probably not completely fermented at the time of bottling and the sugars have been finished afterwards.
O: I am not overly impressed with this although it is not bad. I have a slightly biased assessment coming from some Saisons that I have made with little difficulty that were very similar or better than this with a little more flavor. With that said, this is a highly drinkable light summer Saison which is what these are supposed to be. I would recommend trying Saison Dupont over this however it is a nice light Saison that is not offensive to those who fear flavor.
