(Served in a teku)

A- This beer pours a hazy deep orange body with a slight hue of rose and a big fizzy head that turns into a broke mat.

S- The bread yeast aroma has some soft clove phenols that grown with a mellow citrus zest note in the finish.

T- The club soda flavor is strong with yeast flavor and some softer clove phenols in the dry finish. There is some juicy citrus flavors that stay mellow with an herbal hop note that blends with a slight tartness of hibiscus in the aftertaste.

M- The light mouthfeel has a tight fizz with a soft alcohol warmth as it opens up.

O- The well blended flavor has the yeast character taking the lead with the other flavors a bit too soft. This is a nice sipper for warm weather.

Slight haze, pale gold with thin eggshell colored head and very thin collar. Aroma is of white grape and a faint light malt sweetness. Medium carbonation and light body. Chalky mouthfeel. Taste is like sparkling white grape juice up front, minerally at the end, and banana bread like in the middle.

Pours hazy dark Burt orange with a 2 finger big fizzy head that retains nicely.

Smell is good. Typical saison notes forward mainly white peppercorn and herbal aromas on the front end. Light grainy malt is on the backend.

Taste is good and follows the nose. Light citrus flavors with a mild tartness are forward before a well balanced light white peppercorn flavors comes in. Very mild malty sweetness on the backend with a clean slightly dry finish.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium body and high carbonation keep this refreshing and drinkable

A: hazy orange tinted gold in color. Forms a modest white head that doesn't bother sticking around for too long. Reduces to nothing, not even the slightest of surface coatings. No lacing.

S: fairly aromatic. Mostly yeast derived spice and floral notes. Lots of chamomile. Slight sweetness.

T: taste is somewhat unidimensional. Sweet floral notes dominate. Again I perceive a lot of chamomile. Maybe a bit of yeasty spice and a faint bit of orange citrus, but not much else.

M: lighter body. Heavier carbonation. Spicy and spry. Little bitterness.

O: I've got to admit, I bought this beer thinking it was a Pipeworks beer (that's what I get for misreading the label) and I probably would have passed over it. It's a decent beer, but nothing too exciting. I don't get a whole lot of orange or hibiscus out of this beyond some generic floral and citrus notes and what ever is generating that chamomile flavor is overpowering the beer.

Hazy and pale golden-orange with a fizzy white head. Little retention.

Pleasant smells of corriander, yeast, slightly funky.

The hibiscus and blood orange are not pronounced, but otherwise it's a fairly good saison with standard yeasty flavors. Slightly sweet for the style. Banana and spice.

Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

A good saison. I was hoping for some deeper flavor from the hibiscus and blood orange, which would make this stand out among other saisons.

750 ml bottle (1 pint 9.4 fl oz.), with no apparent bottled on date present. The local beer store just got these in stock, so I'm going to assume it's fresh. Snagged the second to last bottle. They also tell me that this beer is named after the brewer's daughter. My first beer from 18th Street Brewery, brewed and bottled at Pipeworks Brewing, out of Chicago. Expectations are decently high based on this knowledge.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours two fingers of sudsy white head on top of a nice dark burnt orange colored body with some brownish highlights when held to the light. Head dies down to a thin white ring around the edges of the glass.

S - Smell is nice: sour bread dough, Belgian yeast, fruity pineapple presence from the yeast, some floral hibiscus, and spicy cloves. Reminds me of that cheesy burned tortilla type smell, but it's probably from the yeast also.

T - Taste brings more of the same, but I feel as if it falls a bit short on the finish. Belgian yeast, hint of funk, fruity pineapple, and cloves. Not really pulling out any distinct 'blood orange' flavor but citrus fruit is apparent. Definitely a subtle sour "cheesy" taste in the finish; I feel like this beer would pair well with some cheese and I wish I had some.

M - Feel is good, although it feels a bit too moist to be a saison. A bit too smooth and creamy, and not as dry or heavily carbonated as your typical saison / farmhouse ale. Either way, it suits me just fine.

Overall, I am quite enjoying this. It reminds me more of a stronger Belgian ale than it does a typical saison, but I like what they did here. Smooth & creamy, 7.00% abv is well hidden, medium bodied with ideal carbonation. Recommended even if you aren't the biggest fan of the style.

18th Street Brewery Chloe ---4/5.
