Served out of a growler into a 12 oz 3 stars snifter glass. Growler is fresh from the brewery and also review is based on the tasting at the brewery.

A: Cloudy golden yellow that is nontransparent. no matter floating in beer and no head on the pour.

S: Lemon lemon and more lemon. Small amount of yeast scent.

T: light and fruity. pretty consistent throughout. No sense of alcohol in it.

M: thin and light with a bit of dryness after swishing around and swallowing.

O: Really fresh and summery. Could probably kill a growler of this if I hadn't shared it. Easier to drink and lower in alcohol than the Peppercorn saison they make, but not as intricate. Dave and Mike have come out with another successful brew!

On tap at Breadsoda in Glover Park DC

Everything about this brew is mediocre in comparison to craft brew standards, although better than most of the "beer" sold in the US

Appearance is a pale clear yellow with little head
Taste is weak, with only the faintest traces of the character that defines a saison

Worst is the mouthfeel which is almost non-existant

Overall just something to quench the thirst on a hot day

Poured on tap at Meridian Pint DC. Had this before at the brewery as well but didn't have time to jot notes since it was such a small sample. Really wanted to revisit this beer.

Pale amber body, slightly hazy in appearance with thin rising bubbles. A nice simple white collar that sticks around for a good amount of time.

Muted bouquet. Different from what I remember. Strange amount of herbal tea and mint with some lemon hints as well and slightly tropical. Last time I smelled this it was absolutely booming with fruit and complexity it was fascinating but this is not what I remember at all.

The muted notes on the nose seem to also translate on the palate. Lots of doughy yeast and muted fruit juice. Clean with some lemon like aftertaste. Crisp with tight carbonation, a nice tonic tight fizz texture in the front palate.

Overall though I remember this being way more impressive and this seemed dumb down from what I had at the brewery, but glad to at least have gone back and tried it again.
