look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a nice golden with tangerine like hues in the middle. 

S: The smell has hints of roses, pepper and esters.

T: The flavors are very gentle but apparent on the buds. The flavors consisted of honey, pears, hints of light pepper and a toasty/sourdough finish.

M: A very crisp and dry beer that is really easy to consume. Tingles the taste buds.

O: A pretty decent saison with some yummy flavors. I wish the flavors were more pronounced though.

Beautiful golden color with a touch of amber. Nice nose of fruit and champagne. Tart like cider apples. A definite taste of the Belgian funky yeast makes a shy appearance. Light body but full flavor in the mouth. Rich flavored, a touch of sweetness, long but understated bitter aftertaste makes a good conclusion.

Just saw this out in bottle in San Diego so I was curious to try this version as well. Best of the Manzanita offerings, I think, but with such a clean and well-made beer they should be on to something.

I have to admit I have never had a saison style farmhouse ale before. I have read alot about how much goes into making them and what to expect, which may have set my standard a little high but to me this beer is just gross. it tastes like a mixture of bud and fat tire, yuck. it had a good creamy yellow color and poured nicely but i am not a fan of the smell or taste. this beer may have turned me against all saison beers unless someone can point to a good one. also this beer cost $7 for a 22 for that price I expect something great not this garbage.
