Poured into a balloon glass.

An orb of light golden straw underneath a foamy white head. Bready yeast and faint pepper mingle with some banana aromas. The taste copies the aroma well and the cracked pepper emerges a little more, adding a nice spicy element. The beer goes down crisp.

Overall, a very tasty saison.

This beer has a light crisp flavor. Color is perfect. Reigning Australian Beer Cup winner beating out the Saison from Europe. The refreshing flavor adds to the delight of drinking this summer beer. Great way to beat the heat. The Saison is my favorite farm house style beer that Twisted Pine has offered.

a solid summer saison here, good session beer, and like the freedom tickler i recently enjoyed from oskar blues, its not trying to be overly complex, just exist as an interesting enough alternative to the other summer beers out there. i think it accomplishes that in spades, although it does of course lack in depth and quality behind some of the best examples of the style out there. i dont reckon this was made to compete with those beers though, and it finds a comfortable niche elsewhere. very very pale watery look to it, heady though, and lots of bubbles in this one, as it should be. the nose is a mild saison yeast, less frenchy than others which i like, and perfectly dry, which is also important for me in a summer seasonal. a fair degree of funk to it too, considering there is no brett in here, its got a stable-like damp straw characteristic thats really nice, old timey, and fitting. light hops additions in the finsih fit in well too, and this drinks down like water, even though the carbonation is pretty high, its just such a poundable beer, perfect for hot weather. twisted pine takes some undue flack i think, and its beers like this that keep me defending their model. worth trying in the heat.

22 oz. bomber.

pours out a very pale gold colour with incredible active carbonation holding up an immense inch high eggshell white head. belgian lace. peppery spice and lemon aroma supported by a pilsneresque malt base. the taste follows suit...nuanced cracker like maltiness blanketed by a white pepper spice note. slightly tart. there is a noticeable hop layer in the flavour profile that has both spicy saaz notes and a hint of domestic NW fruitiness. it's also a bit yeasty as per the style...finishing on the dry side. quite quenchable. this saison is a bit light in the body, with a dry, crisp, lip smacking mouthfeel. nice drinkability.

overall...this one scores points for it crispness and quenching qualities, but lacks in the taste department. I've been sitting on two bottles for a long time and wonder if this is past its prime. i'm not a great saison drinking mind but this offering failed to pique my interest.
