Had this at ChurchKey in DC. From notes.

A - Poured light golden in colour and bright with a three finger white head. Good lace spatterings and a film of retention.

S - Zesty, a little funk, hay, hops.

T - Some hops and hay, lemon, a little funk. A nice flavour profile that is pretty much exact to how they describe it commercially.

M - Really dry to finish, light to medium body, nice carbonation.

O/D - Quite a nice saison. Highly drinkable and a good solid flavour that's light but assertive. The style is being done a lot these days and rarely done this well. Good stuff.

Serving type: on-tap

From03/07/14 notes. 14 oz. pour in a tulp at One Mile House in NYC.

a - Pours a deep clear yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks nice.

s - Smells of spice, yeast, earthy notes, floral hops, light lemon and citrus, grass, and dough. Nice nose, little more spice than I normally like but it is pretty good.

t - Tastes of spice, yeast, citrus hops, floral notes, lemon zest, pepper, grass, earthy malts, dough, and biscuit malts. Taste has a little more pepper than the nose.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty good saison. It has a little more spice and pepper than I personally like in a saison, but if that is your thing definitely check it out. Looking forward to trying their other beers.

An interesting cross, with a hopped up saison, quite drinkable and made me want to seek out more offerings by this brewery. Felt this was more along the Pale Ale side of things, lot of West Coast citrusy hop notes, refreshing with a grainy slightly rustic saison character. Good balance, some interesting complex character, and I would definitely have it again.
