on tap at pope in philly

Pours a completely clouded golden color with some yellow hues. Thick, frothy white head retains well on top, fading into some layers of film with some rings of lacing on the glass.

Spicy and citrusy on the nose. Some lemon peel and cracked pepper with a hint of orange sweetness. Barely any alcohol with some soft brett funk and yeast.

Splash of floral hops up front with peppery spice. Some herbal notes followed by citrus juiciness and lemon peel. A little sweet in the middle from the fruit. Hints of bretty funk and Belgian yeast, but not quite tart. Finishes a little spicy.

Medium body, higher carbonation, refreshing and tingly on the palate. A solid saison, although I was hoping for more brett presence.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

650ml bottle poured into tulip 7/9/13

A slight gush upon opening but I got it in the glass, hazy pale orange liquid with plenty of bubbles, a big fluffy foam sits around for ages slowly falling to a thick film leaving a few partial rings of lace

S peppery spice, bubblegum, funk, clove, lemon peel, herbal notes, dry cereal, and I swear I get a hint of smoke but I might be crazy, smells pretty bad ass

T more lemon rind and cereals, a hint of booze and orange marmalade, still has what the nose was offering but not quite the intensity but still great stuff

M medium bodied, almost foamy, spicy rind lingers with a little funk

O a nice funky saison, smells the highlight but not lacking anywhere, something I'd drink again as a nice treat

I should've drank this when the sun was shining but even on a rainy evening its hitting the spot. I like a little funk to go with the style and this one delivers

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Very good lacing.

S: Typically sweet and astringent saison aroma: Spices, yeast, and malt.

T: Tasted of spices (cloves, pepper), Belgian yeast, and some malt. Had that medicinal quality common to saisons. A pretty balanced and focused flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, enjoyable, and drinkable beer.

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!

GUSHER! For a long time after I opened my first Biscotti Break (which was a disaster of volcanic gushering), I opened all my Evil Twin (and a few other breweries like Hof Dormaal) beers in the kitchen sink. Then a long period of well behaved ale made me lower my guard. This bottle did not shoot into the air, but had a ferocity of flow that was amazing. In a quick few seconds to run to the sink, I lost 2/3s of the bottle. Eventually:
Poured into a Nostradamus flute, pouring a very hazy, almost opaque caramel amber with a large (but only 2% of the total) white head that had good retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma of bready malt, light saison yeast, stone and citrus fruit, nice. Flavor is Brett, saison yeast, much more subdued stone and citrus fruit. Finishes dry and Bretty with a long aftertaste of the wild yeast, citrus rind and light bittering hops. Light bodied with very active carbonation. A classic Brett inspired saison with an above average, moderately complex fruit component. The wild yeast influence was a bit beyond my preference, but well within the style expectations. A good deal for the price in a 22oz, bomber, perhaps not so much for 7 ounces of actual saison in the glass. My floor was sticky and drunk all night. Back to opening beer in my sink….

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a pale gold color. Cloudy. Very large white head. Hard to pour because of it. Big clumps of bubbles stick all over the glass. Aroma is lemons, funk, herbal hops and fresh pale malt. The brett is quite good. It's a medium strong, relatively clean funk that plays nicely with the malt and other flavors well. There's also a bit of an earthy Belgian yeast note in there. The taste doesn't quite come together as well. It starts mildly sweet before dying out and adding a tangy lemon flavor and a good bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Some spice. A good deal of sweet pale malt flavor. Mouthfeel is full and creamy for a saison. Very soft. Good beer but not my favorite beer from Evil Twin, though those imperial stouts make for a pretty high bar.

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

Pours a hazed golden orange, big plume of white froth, leaving patchy lacing. Scent is a mix of citrus and herbal notes, moderate sweetness coming through with a bite of spice. taste follows suit, herbal qualities blend with lemon and grapefruit, bready and lightly sweet malts in the background, moderate spicing throughout, lightly grassy and earthy. Moderately dry and a touch bubbly, medium bodied. Overall some unique flavor points, but never comes together fully.

3.63/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
