Pours a hazy straw golden with a great layer of foam.
Light aroma of floraly esters with an underlying funky hay note.
Lemony peppery and coriander notes emerge as it warms.
The flavor is peppery and spicy with a rustic feel.
The hint of wet hay gives off some funk.
Delightful.

Aggressive 8 oz pour into a 14oz Ale Apothecary chalice.

A - Gorgeous hazy peach middle with fade to yellowish on the edges. Vigorous, tightly bubbled foam that lasted at least 5 mins before fading slowly down the glass, leaving spidery legs behind.

S - One of the best things about this beer. Almost sweet-smelling, caramelized pear, mild funky esters. very faint banana, mango. Absolutely stunning and unique.

T - Big fruits. peaches, pear, apple skin, and white pepper. Light bready cracker malt. This is most certainly not a bone-dry cracker/spice fest (though perhaps it would be with age).

M - Really effervescent, exploding my tastebuds and flooding my sinus with aroma after each sip. A very drinkable mid-body. Slightly sweet, but not cloying.

O - So, so nice. One of the more unique, focused, delicious takes on the Saison style, in the world, but especially the US. The Bretta gets the props (deservedly, for the same price), but this saison is without parallel in its style. Need to age one and see what would happen. It's too hard!

Poured a cloudy orange-amber with four fingers of fluffy white head that wasn't goin' nowhere. Aroma of pear, banana, and light peppery spice mixed with a trace of funk.

Light, crisp mouthfeel with ample carbonation that leads to a smooth, creamy finish. Bread and earthy spice up front mingling with apple, pear, white grape, and a dry, grassy finish.

I grew up in Hood River and am probably giving this a slight ratings boost out of nostalgia, but this is a delicious and refreshing saison that is well worth trying. Good balance of spice, earth, and fruit.

Orangey cloudy appearance, head is dense, just a thin crown but loads of lacing left behind wherever it's been. Looks nice.

Smells funky, but so inviting. She's fresh (exciting). Peach, nectar, green apple, some nutmeg and cinnamon. Yeah, slight tartness to balance out an otherwise sweet and lovely aroma.

Taste is also sweet and spicy. Cinnamon with sultanas, cake batter upfront, then green apples and barnyard funk come through with a touch of coriander, grains of paradise and balsamic. Ends with this sweet, yet phenolic flavour in perfect harmony with the other components. Yum.

Foams a little in the mouth. A bit sharp, but drinks well.

A cracking saison. Funky, refreshing, sublimely complex and yet so much finesse. We have here an absolute weiner.
