On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A hazy golden orange color with a white head. Good fruitiness on the nose, mostly citrus, but a little bit of peach. Grass, straw, and must give a soft funkiness. A touch of oak, white wine, and lemon zest. The flavor has a nice peach quality along with mild tartness of lemon. Lots of straw, a moderate oak note along with some drying tannins. A light malt flavor, mostly just bread. The nose is a bit better than the flavor, but enjoyable.

On-tap at Beachwood II,

A: Pours a dark goldenrod with a medium white head, nice head retention and lace.

S: Some white wine character, heavy spice, very 'classic' saison nose.

T: White pepper, yeast, earthy hops. Nice overall malt flavour, though I wanted something more from the Sauv Blanc barrels.

M: Medium-bodied, crisp, creamy, soft carbonation.

O: A nice saison, I wish the barrels as I said showed up more, but certainly enjoyable.

Nice, stronger biere de garde. Aged in Malibu Family Wines Sauvignon Blanc barrels.

Aroma is sweet with some light berries (strawberries, etc) with white wine notes. Tropical fruits. Very pleasant.

The taste carries through nicely. Lots of sweet but delicate fruits in the flavor (much of it likely from the Sauvignon Blanc barrels) with some earthy notes. Rather tasty.

Definitely drinkable.

Recommended. This is a nice and tasty beer created in celebration of the Tour of California.
