On-tap at Beer Authority, New York, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of lemon citrus and grainy malts in the nose along with some hints of spices.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots of lemony citrus and grainy malts in the flavors. There are some very slight hints of sourness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No dryness is perceptible.
O: The lemony aromas and flavors of this beer are nice except that it seems it could have used some more dryness and spices.

Growler from Lagunitas. Awesome glass!

Pale golden body, slightly opaque, but you can still see through it. Short, tight, bone white head. Settles out to a thin cover, with some pools of bubbles.

White pepper and some clove spice. Grassy. Lemon twinge with some tea like aromas. Earthy yeast. Perfect saison nose.

Bright, lemon flavors, tending more towards the sweet side, but with some tartness. Nice spicey bite mid-palate, with some pepper warmth. Light flavors of stone fruit with earthy tones. Finish has some chalky flavors, and more earthy tones from the hops. Dry and crisp, with a good amount of carbonation. A little bitterness lingers.

This is one of my favorite saisons. It seemed to disappear for awhile, but now seems to be in regular rotation at Lagunitas. Refreshing and tasty. Glad I can get this again.

This pours with a big heady foam atop a golden, clear yellow beer. Think hazy blonde-straw yellow.

The aroma has some estery notes. Very floral, with just a hint of wet hay.

The flavor is light, floral, spicy, and dominated by yeasty estery notes. The characteristic Lagunitas hoppiness is dialed down on this one. Easy drinker, albeit not terribly interesting.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden yellow with a somewhat small near-white head that doesn't leave much stick down the glass.

The aroma is that of a classic saison: some lemon, distinctive yeast, a bit of black pepper, and a bit of hay and grass.

The flavor is similar to the aroma and quite classic. The lemon and yeast are the main elements, with a bit of distinctive pepper and grass character.

Medium bodied with lower to moderate carbonation.

A classic saison that lacks a bit in appearance and mouthfeel.

On tap at The Common Table.

The beer pours a gold-amber color with a medium-sized white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat in it, with some grass from the hops and also some Belgian yeast notes.

The flavor is similar. I get a lot of pepper from the yeast, as well as a little bit of orange citrus and a lot of wheat. There is some hop flavor but not any bitterness.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
