Served in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House.

Finally, I get to try something made with a hand from Off Color. Took me long enough. This stuff pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light orange zest, very light lemon zest, light black pepper, mild wheat, and a touch of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a dash of what I assume to be cardamom. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a decent little saison, better than most of the Belgian-style stuff from the Floyds (echoing Masterski's sentiment), but still nothing all that memorable.

On-tap at Black Rock Pub. Served in a tulip.

A - White foam settles to a collar, near-complete cap, and spotty lacing. Murky orange-yellow body.

S - Peppery Belgian yeast, loads of stone fruit, light citrus, bread, a bit of phenolic funkiness to the yeast character.

T - The taste is heavier on bread and yeast, with less of the malt and fruit sweetness I get from the aroma. There's still a bit of stone fruit and citrus zest, but it's mild relative to peppery yeast and grains. There's some grassy hop bitterness in the finish.

M - Alcohol is very well-hidden. Chewy, juicy, medium full body, with pleasant soft carbonation. Lightly grainy texture.

D - I like this significantly more than most Belgian's brewed at FFF, as the yeast strains used seem less dirty than something like Rabid Rabbit or Tiger Jelly. A good balance of sweetness, yeast, and grain, but probably the least exciting of John's collaborations. I had a few glasses, but returned to this one less often than the others.

On tap at the brewpub the other night. Served in a tulip glass there.

The beer pours a striking gold color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose I get considerable tropical fruit, along with some clove, bubblegum and light bananna. The flavor profile replicates the nose, except the beer was a bit sweeter than I was expecting, and there was more spice as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long finish. The beer had some noticeable alcohol on the finish (wasn't hot or tiring, but you do notice it), which along with the sweetness, hurt the beer's drinkability a bit. Still a solid beer, but I'm not sure this is something I need to order again any time soon.

On-tap at the first Off Color open house.

A: Pours a hazy zesty yellow with a huge white head.

S: Smells primarily of bright citrus and some sweet saison esters. Lemon, white cake, mild cloves, stone fruit, orange zest.

T: More lemon, lime, vanilla, nectarine, clean citrus, sweet grain.

M: Light-bodied with zingy carbonation.

O: A very bright, citrusy saison. Pretty decent.
