12oz bottle poured into an Idle Hands tulip.
A - Pours with a huge fluffy, off-white, 3 finger cap of foam on top of a cloudy, slightly muddied pale amber colored body.
S - Noticeable honey character up front, green, grassy and slightly vegetable hop presence, ginger , slightly tart wheaty malt.
T - Mild wheat tartness with grassy hops, honey sweetness, mild hop bitterness, gingery spice. A number of flavor components here, but overall it seems kinda hollow without any cohesiveness pulling everything together. Comes across as rather plain and a bit lacking in life.
M - Light in body, a bit watery in feel, sharp carbonation that is extremely prickly on the tongue. Spicy ginger in the middle that then lingers forever past the swallow and giving the biggest flavor impression in this beer.
O - Unimpressive...seems like it should be better reading the ingredients list. It just doesn't seem to pull it all together...big potential, but lacking a bit in execution. Drinkable but not one for me to go back to...not really saison-y to me - more like a non-descript pale ale with ginger added.

On tap at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours hazy yellow with lots of fluffy head. Aroma of yeast funk, sweet honey, some light citrus and pear, a bit of spice, and more funkiness. Flavor follows the smell very closely with some additional sweetness and body, some nice finishing spice and light grassy hop character. Body is light to light medium with medium plus carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. Nothing special but worth drinking on a nice summer day.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Orange color, alright head. Interesting aroma that has only the mildest notes of honey but then something else I can;t place. Not bad. Flavor was yeasty with a bit of honey wheat bread aspect to it. very drinkable and I liked it better than the farmer's reserve blackberry.
