Malts: organic pale,organic caramel
Unmalted: rolled barley

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

pours a hazy copper with big, foamy white head that leaves lots of lace.

Fruit, spice, and a little bitterness are the dominant smells here, with the hops really giving this beer some good complexity; a little tartness, as well.

definite fruitiness, as well as some hop bitterness. Citrus, and some sweeter malts as well as a solid bit of spice. Again, a little tartness never hurts.

Crazy smooth and clean; easy to drink. Medium-light body, with some carbonation dancing on the tongue.

A solid saison, with a twist from the hops. Not quite an APA, but more than a simple wheat beer. Tasty.

4.03/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium-gold hue with a light haze and a strong effervescence. Head poured four creamy fingers of pretty but inconvenient foam. Enticing!

Smell: a light funk with a malty sweetness and a really nice grassy character. It has a real vernal feel to it; I'm a fan.

Taste: mildly funky but with a nice sweetness and a little bit of a chalky taste. There's also a decent bitterness at the end. I rather like it; it's somewhere between a saison and a tripel -- good stuff!

Mouthfeel: surprisingly, not all of this beer's carbonation went into creating that mammoth head! There's still plenty left in the body to yield a delightfully creamy mouthfeel. Kudos!

Overall: I'm digging on this beer. I'll have no trouble quaffing the whole 750.

Bottle I brought to share at the Revenge Of Instant Replay bottleshare held at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a thick cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, licorice, tea, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, floral, and tea flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has some unique aromas and flavors that I am enjoying.
