Best Saison I've ever had. After hearing the touching story about the man who came up with the recipe it just added to the greatness this beer is. Stunning complexity and elegance. Saisons can being very strait and narrow, this one wonders but you always have a feel like it's on course. It's worth seaking out if you can find it on tap.

Poured on tap at Pizza Port C-Bad into a pint glass. Poured golden clear color with a finger thick white head little lacing. Smell is a mixture of spice, yeast, a little green orchaid fruit, a semi sweet malt aroma. Taste is sligth green apple, honey, pepper, fruit ester profile with a little green sourness. Mouthfeel is smooth light body with a really mellow but active carbonation level. This is really an easy drinking beer( finished my first in under 2 minutes and had several more) would be perfect for a nice sunny day. A wonderful tribute beer RIP Brother.

On tap at Stone for the San Diego Storm. Pours a really clear golden with a small light fizzy head. The smell is real earthy, yeasty. The taste was grainy, bready, belgian-like. Overall it was a very light beer, easily drinkable, yet interesting and tasty at the same time.

On draft at Hamilton's
Appearance is a murky bright orange hue, fair amount of white foam dissipates to a ring, watery lacing
Smell is a delicious range of fruits and spices, honeysuckle, orange blossom, light malts, honey, cotton candy, hints of cinnamon, pepper, light fruits, and hops
Taste is an initial push of sweet malts and fruits and spice, opens up to sweet honey and vanilla, finishes thick and sweet
Medium-bodied, fairly thick texture, lively carbonation a touch on the high side
Drinkability is high, this is one flavorful saison bursting with taste and amazing aromas, great example of the style
