A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of peppery spices are present in the nose along with notes of lemons.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and tastes like lemon-pepper spice mix to some degree.
M: It feels a bit more than light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The saison has a nice balance between the lemons and peppers in the taste and is easy to drink.

Pours into my Hennepin stemmed glass a slight hazed lemon yellow with just a tinge of orange,a great looking one finger bone white head that settled slowly into a frothy mass.Alot of lemon and orange oils in the nose wich gives off some tartness,mild funk in the background.Dry with a little toasted grain upfront on the palate with a little tartness from lemon-like notes,not much funk or phenols to be found wich I like.Very drinkable and dry with refreshing tartness,awesome summer beer here,my first Off Color beer is a hit.

Pale pastel yellow gold, topped with a rocky head of soufflé foam that leaves lots of lacing behind as it slowly deflates. There's a slight haze, and slow rising trails of carbonation.
Aroma is all fruity hops, apparently dry hopped with Crystal. In the distinctive vein of Nelson, but it's own thing. Some light yeast spiciness comes through, mild clove.
Taste is more straightforward, quenching and light foremost, with an undercurrent of complexity that keeps the mind interested. Light notes of spicy yeast esters and dried fruit, alongside minor notes of dried floral bits. Crystal hops provide the x-factor that keeps you guessing. Simple but pleasantly nuanced.

a saison better in overall impression than any of its component parts taken in isolation. this is a fantastic four pack of beer, finally reasonably priced from these guys too. its hazy honey colored with large soda bubbles accumulating into a fizzy grayish white head thats relatively short lived. the nose on this suggests a basic french saison yeast, but its way too background to be just that. not sure i detect brett, but that level of funk is appearing on the smell as well, maybe a subtle brett C type strain here, real mild. wheat malt base is comfortable, round, and a good base for a very complex yeast character and a grassy bittering hop finish. i love the marketing and packaging on it just as much as the beer itself, witty and tasteful, like most of the beers ive had from off color in general actually. i hope their stuff continues to come to colorado, its unique enough to stand out, like when stillwater four packs first landed. dry as anything in the finish, despite have an oaty sweet middle. fantastic carbonation finishes it clean, just a hit of that white wine french saison yeast as it goes down. drinking all four of these in a sitting was a delight, and a sixer would not have been an issue. stoked on this.

From 02/01/14 notes. On tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. 14 oz. pour in a snifter.
a - Pours a somewhat hazy yellow-golden color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of Belgian yeast, spices, fruity esters, bananas, cloves, bready malts, and wheat. Nice Belgian notes and lots of fruit to it, I like the nose.
t - Tastes of spices, pepper, fruity malts, soap, apples, bananas, pine hops, grains, and wheat. More spice than the nose, a slight step down from the nose.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.
o - Overall a nice saison. Nose is and fruity with Belgian notes, though the taste has more spice. Worth checking out, would probably have it again.
