Poured from 12 ounce bottle to a glass. Big white foam and light straw color. Smells initial citrus, apple, and cinnamon. Taste somewhat bland with light yeast and fruit notes but a fairly thin mouthfeel.

Overall a slight disappointment and had a Ron and the Beast Ryan from a 22oz bottle right after and couldn't tell much of a difference. Both were very similar with Ron having a slight thicker mouthfeel and lingering grapefruit notes. These don't make the list of new or old school saisons in my opinion

Straight pour from a 12oz bottle to an oversized wineglass (Tired Hands stempiece). Bottling date of April 9, 2013, apparently at 1:13PM, written in yellow ink on the shoulder of the bottle (“BTLD 04/09/13 13:13”), making this bottle just over six weeks old.

Appearance (3.5): Nearly two fingers of cream-colored foam comes off of the pour, sitting atop a perfectly hazy, honey-golden body. As it warms, it turns nearly clear with a straw-yellow body color. Very little lacing, just a few sudsy splotches here and there. Modest retention: after the head dies down, there’s very little film on the surface of the body.

Smell (4.25): Lots of nice, dusty straw, earthy tones (moist clay and soil), floral and fruit tones (pears, peaches, some lemon peel, white grapes), some mineral tones; some toasted biscuits, fresh baked white bread—all very saison-ish, pale and crisp, and nicely farmhouse. The mineral tones are actually really, really clear and nice.

Taste (4.0): And whoa, the mineral character transfers to the palate very, very nicely, crossing into some mildly astringent grapefruit peel bitterness that carries through to the finish, almost like chewing on grape seeds. Some light pear juice, floral tones, very light white pepper, and above all, that kinda grape seed / grapefruit peel bitterness. Very dry, pale, floury, bready malt character, like chewing on peasant bread crust. As it warms, the bitterness smoothes out and the malt body gets a little bit more of a smooth sweetness to balance.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Soft, expansive carbonation that tingles around the edges before going down; the body is on the light side of medium, with a slightly hop-oily feel. The beer finishes very nicely dry—goes down pretty easily, in terms of feel. The alcohol is felt but not picked up on the palate.

Overall (4.0): This is an interesting saison—less spice than most versions, a lot more mineral character, and the grape seed / grapefruit peel bitterness adds a different tone. It also changes a lot from start to finish, rounding out and mellowing in some ways, which is nice because I like a dynamic brew. I think this is much more in line with the kind of new-school saisons, as opposed to the more traditional, classic versions—but it’s interesting and tasty, for sure. Worth checking out for saison aficionados.

Golden color in the glass with a modest head. Big, rich, fruity flavors with a zing of the Belgian yeast. Spicy nose with a prickly carbonation. Starts with a sweet malt taste cut by tangy citrus. A long rasp of yeasty bitterness followed by more fruit.

Pear skins and apple pie with a browned crust. A big flavored Saison that may be a little too intense on the dry, yeasty flavors, but it's a long strange trip. Very interesting and worth comparing with other Saisons. On tap at Public House in La Jolla.

Four packs YAY!

Pours a slightly cloudy bright yellow with good white head and lacing.

Smells like a farmhouse all right. Funky and lemon.

Taste is citrus rind, funk, Belgian hops. Some sweetness but about right.

Mouth feel when first opened was pretty dry then mellowed and became wetter.

Overall, I think this is a good Saisan. I am surprised it has a somewhat lower rating. This is very drinkable, fresh and well done.

Poured from a bottle into a nice Half Acre tulip glass

A - Hazy golden straw color, generated a very nice white frothy head, lots of lacing as the head receded.

S - sweet lemon and grassy scent, nice spice profile

T - Very nice taste, starts out with some sweetness, good spicy flavors with lemon hints, ends with a real dry finish.

M - Medium bodied, medium carbonation very dry.

O - I like this brew, good balance of sweet and dry, very crisp on the finish while being very tasty.
