look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is slightly hazy and tan-gold with an ok head and lace, but slightly less than is typical for the style.

Flavor and aroma are nice, and on par with what I'd expect from a saison, grassy, some citrus, a little crisp hops, pretty nice.

Body is a little sweeter and less dry than typical saisons, as if T-58 was chosen over 3711 (homebrew reference of yeasts that I have personally used, not sure what actual yeast Karbach used). However, this is not a criticism, just an observation. I have enjoyed beers brewed with both yeasts, as I am enjoying this one.

Certainly I'm going to enjoy the rest of this sixer, and will happily continue to pick up sixers of Karbach in the future. (691 characters)

On tap, poured into a shaker. There's an aroma that's bright lemon zest with some some graham cracker notes hiding underneath, some light egg drop soup notes, and a light herb (coriander). The beer is just slightly hazy with a straw hue and a dense foam, white head that mostly disappears, leaving only a light retention and lace. The taste is a bit north of medium sweet with a complimentary, medium light bitter. The beer is soft with a foamy and spritzy carbonation, an oily texture, and a medium light body flavored by bread, lemon, and some tropical notes with a crisp, clean finish of clean lemon and coriander along with a hint of graham cracker and bitter citrus. The aftertaste is short and the beer is quite clean and refreshing. (741 characters)

On tap at Anvil.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of Belgian yeast notes, as well as a little bit if spice and some biscuit malt. The flavor features a lot of orange and lemon citrus notes, as well as some sugar and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice Texas-made saison. (335 characters)

Can (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!

A saison from a can? In!

Clear golden. Creamy, persistent near-white head. Not a lot of stick, but a pretty beer nonetheless.

Very classic saison aroma. Dried grass and a little hay, very mild lemon, good amounts of earth, and faint, leafy hop character. Very nice.

Similar flavor as the aroma. Yeast dominated flavor with earth and dried grass notes shining through right up against just a bit of lemon, pepper, and leaf. Very tasty.

Medium bodied with crisp, near-high carbonation.

Too crushable. I want to get a case of this for the racetrack. (621 characters)
