Thanks to Hopswagger for this one!
22oz served in a Prairie teku
In honor of my twins on Father's Day weekend.

A - golden body with a massive meringue head. Incredible amounts of 3d lacing.

S - tropical fruits galore, pineapple, mango, papaya, peach, some soapy spiciness. Fresh grain, yeasty bread.

T - tropical fruits, lots of strong papaya, pineapple, guava, stone fruits, peach and persimmon. A good amount of citrus as well. Some funkiness. Candy malts are lightly sweet with some faint breadiness. Finishes dry and spicy.

M - medium full body, lush feel, moderate carbonation but doesn't distract and seems mellow. Dry finish.

A tropical forward saison that's bright with a great mouthfeel. I loved this beer.

Bomber bottle, purchased in Peeksklill, NY $11.99. "Best Before 2015" on the label

Pours clouded lighter tangarine/amber/golden, under an intiially huge med. khaki head, that slowly fades to a thicker foam, gauzy sheets of fine lacing.

Lemon, honey and pepper on the nose.

Dry, flavorful, over loaded with citric juices, lime and loads of pepper. Carbonation on the high side. Crisp, moderatly tart and bright. Brett showing nicely, with some light funk, but mostly crisply and with more puckeringly dry/citric character.

Lovely beer, go get some

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Slightly hazed golden in color with a creamy white head that leaves ribbons and lots of sticky lace down the glass.

Aroma is a nice combination of grass, hay, earth, a little bit of bubble gum, yeast, and floral hops. Very nice.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with good amounts of grass, earth, and floral characters leading the way, along with a bit of sweet bubblegum, and bread. Very nice and incredible drinkable. No alcohol presence.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation, and somewhat creamy.

Very nice, incredibly drinkable saison, though probably not worth the price point.

650ml bottle. Another saison, as the 'season' quickly wanes, this one brewed with honey.

This beer pours a very hazy, cloudy medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves a pretty decent array of layered sedimentary rock lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of sharp, edgy earthy yeast, semi-sweet wheaty cereal malt, white and black pepper, very tame leathery funk, dry lemon zest, and herbal, floral hops. The taste is still rather cutting up front, what with the sassy yeast, dry citrus pith, and zingy pepper dust all sort of conferring as such, before some slightly less pungent lemon rind 'fruitiness' comes aboard, alongside a mild earthy funk, understated orchard stone fruitiness, mild white pepper spiciness, and touch of finally manifested ethereal honey sweetness.

The bubbles are fairly hefty, and zingy for the most part, with a hollow frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and a tad acrid in its attempt at smoothness. It finishes quite dry, the yeast still large and in charge, the citrus and drupe fruitiness hanging tough, and da funk loitering like it wasn't exactly a misdemeanor.

A decent enough saison, though the honey has a hard time convincing me that it actually exists. Yeasty, wheaty, spicy, and a bit boozy - that's what this one is all about. As for Ron or Ryan (is he a beast?), I really have no fucking clue who they are, and even less gumption to learn more, at this particular point in time.

Surprisingly decent saison, smooth with a honey finish. Recently purchased bottle. Light coloured body, slightly spicy and in no way funky aroma. Good drinkability, does not even need the honey to be a good saison, and it would have been not as sweet.

Poured into a Stone IRS glass. Hazy, straw color with foamy white head that lasts a bit then quickly disappears, leaving a very thin layer behind. Brewed with one of my personal favorites, Brettanomyces. Nose is lemon, straw, slightly sweaty/funky, some apples and some bready yeast notes. The taste is very lemony up front. Almost more lemony than lemons. That quickly gives way to a funky barnyard taste with tropical fruits like mango. There's some bready, malty tastes in the back and a strong yeasty taste more in the foreground. Some flavors of tart green apples and even a little bit of cherry in there. Delicious. It is very carbonated but not in an overwhelming way. Its very drinkable for something so funky. I am not usually a fan of saisons but a lot of new ones seem to be growing on me. If I get the opportunity to pick up another of these I will and I'll sit on it for a bit to see where the Brett goes. It tastes like its still alive and kicking and it has a long journey ahead of it.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller oversized wine glass. Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, spices, banana runts, and bubble gum. The flavor was of sweet malt, bubble gum, banana, spices, and bread. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The aroma on this one was really nice and complex. It made me think that this was going to be a massively sweet brew that would make me wish I had a shot for diabetes standing by. However, the flavor was very nice and well balanced and actually tasted like bubble gum which was awesome to experience again as it doesn’t happen often in the brews I drink. Definitely a must try from Evil Twin!

Pours a bright yet cloudy pale orange color with a short yet dense pure white head. A bit more orangey than your typical saison.

The aroma is quite sweet, has kind of an orangey candy type scent. Some subtle tart apple and farmhouse funk, mainly hay. Its a nice aroma but definitely sweet.

The taste has an earthy sourness that was not picked up in the aroma. Kind of sharp bitter unripe orange. There is a brightness from the malt and floral notes. Some hay and funk and an odd metallic note. The bitter/sour is too sharp for my liking.

The feel is light and fizzy, crisp. Good balance for the most part but does end with a rough bitterness.

A flavorful saison but the sour/bitter is a bit too striking; needs to be more mellow. Its worth a purchase but not sure a re-purchase.

500 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with about an inch and a half frothy white head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like hay, bready malt, peppery spice, lemon peel, and some green apples. It tastes like bready malt, lemon peel, bubblegum, peppery spice and some fruit and herbs. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and has moderate/high (but soft) carbonation which helps make this easy to drink. I think this is a solid overall brew, but it's not my favorite of the Evil Twin beers I've tried. With that being said, I do think it's worth trying.
