3.8/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Sampled at Blue Palms in Los Angeles, consumed 9/12/08, reviewed from notes, thanks to Chris for bringing this keg up to LA

A-Golden yellow color with light orange highlights, slightly murky, 1/2 inch thin soapy white head, some retention left a pillow of fluffiness, minimal lacing
S-Bananas, strong yeast, cloves, coriander, herbs, other spices, lemons, orange peel, faint hops, grass, and flowers
T-Starts off with a big yeasty flavor, has some chewiness in the middle, mild fruit and hoppiness in the finish, was expecting a little funk based on the smell but could not taste any at all, gets sweeter as it warms and sugary spices comes to the surfaces, the cloves are most dominant but they are sweeter than usual, still yeast in the flavor until the end, not bad overall
M-Dry, sweet, and spicy mouthfeel, thin to medium body, lots of carbonation, taste does not last long
D-Could drink a few glasses of this for sure, light on the stomach, low in alcohol and it is hidden, would make a nice session beer, would be nice on a hot day

Second beer ever tasted from this brewery, actually right after their Chocolatte Porter, have been drinking a lot of saisons lately and this one did not quite hold up to those but they were great, still might drink again, worth trying

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Callahan's, San Diego. One of the few times where a beer at Callahan's is presented as an SDBC brew.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange color. Off-white head quickly becomes a film but leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. Mild yeasty aroma with a bit of orange. Similar taste with light carbonation. Smooth and medium-bodied. It's not as complex as some other Saisons, but it's a solid and drinkable beer that deserves a couple glasses for sure.
