4.05/5  rDev 0%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into an oversize red wine glass at 4C, tasted at about 7C.

Rich, hazy golden straw and orange pour with thick voluptuous and beautifully dimpled 4+ finger head that is perfectly maintained, near perfect lacing.

Yeasty mandarin orange and tropical fruits dominate the nose. Some alcoholic warmth, subtle hints of acidity and fresh citrus oil.

Surprisingly high acidity considering the nose, but average for the style. Dry, old mandarin orange and woody coriander/spices. Light horse blanket yeast, but slightly green grassy hop-ishness dominate the lower end. Richly balanced with good depth but lacks satisfaction; I think it lacks a little bit of sweetness.

Crisp, medium weight body that is well carbonated before a marginally dry peak before a medium juicy finish with a yeasty bubble at the back of the palate.

There is something disjointed between the nose, taste and mouth feel. While each individually are good, the evolution from one to the other lack integration. The lacking of satisfaction may be due to the cold season, so I will try this again in the summer. A good drink but there several other saisons that I would much rather have as a similar or lower price.

A: hazy, pale golden with a great 1 inch white fluffy head. Great retention and lacing. Can't ask for a better looking Saison.

S: Doesn't have a strong smell but I definitely get all the smells related toa saison. Pepper, orange rind, lemon, hay, and the barnyard funky characteristics. It has a crisp and honey aromas as well. Can't ask for a better smelling Saison.

T: Everything from the nose. Very round and full flavored. Got some honey and pineapple. Not as dry as I thought. More on the sweet side, fruity if I had to use a word. Finally I got why it is so fruity. The pear juice makes much complex and more interesting. Like it.

M: Goes down pretty nice. Leaves a little dry sensationbut the finish is long and fruity. I know, it's ironic but the back of my palate feels dry but the rest of my mouth has the lingering sweetness.

O: Great job by Longsdon. It's a greatly done beer. It is probably a little too sweet for the style but I must say I loved it. Woudn't hesitate to order it again. Refreshing and delicious. A must try.

Bottle (2012)

The Bruery Provisions
Orange, CA

Hazed, yellow and golden with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves spiderwebs of gorgeous lace all the way down the glass.

Complete and appropriate aroma of earth, hay, grass, a hint of musty barnyard, and a bit of fruit.

The flavor is similar, and incredibly drinkable. Earthy, barnyard flavors complement hay, grass, earth, and a bit of black pepper.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Incredibly drinkable and very well crafted.

I love this beer, though I slightly prefer the version with Brett.

Bottle No S7794; best before January, 2015. Poured from a waxed-and-capped 750mL bottle into my Troubadour tulip.

Golden Munsell yellow body, thoroughly cloudy with a creamy antique white finger of foam up top. Pasty sticky lacing; good retention.

Aromatics are pure and alternately sweet and spicy with a mixture of yeast, malt, and pear (no fruity esters or peppery phenols). Faint spiciness and floral notes add further balance and interest.

Potent palate entry is tart with pear and yeast along with grassy hops and hints of white pepper in the finish. Slightly funky and a touch muddled (though still well balanced) over-all, but the flavors are each strong and enjoyable. I imagine this will age very well as the flavors continue to evolve and integrate.

Effervescent, soft, medium-full mouthfeel, though still refreshing from the tartness.

An excellent and unique example of the style - will have to revisit this after a year in the cellar. Very nice to see another producer of farmhouse ales in Oregon - one of my favorite types of ale - looking forward to trying their kriek when it comes to fruition (pardon the pun).
