Out of the can and into the Teku on July 4th whilst in the garden.

Now this, my peeps, is one of those in-between interesting, yet somewhat neutral beers. It doesn't hit you over the head like your baby mama with a Jimmy Choo stiletto when you come home late, yet through it's Swedish like balance and neutrality, it it pretty doggone solid.

Light yeast, light pepper, smooth on the tongue...

Raul just found another horse for his stable.

Yep!

Thanks to Kevsal for throwing this one in. Pours a brilliant pale yellow with 2 fingers of fluffy head, generous retention and plenty of lacing. The aroma has that familiar saison quality which comprises of a bit of hay, a touch of funk, lemon zest, and black pepper. The lemon and black pepper come through the strongest. The taste brings on the same notes as the smell with the addition of some bready malt character. Everything is in nice balance here with plenty of flavor and a nice dash of the Saaz hops to make for a crisp finish. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and light. Overall, a very drinkable and refreshing saison.

I really like this saison-brew... and not just because its a San Diego based beer.

As advertised, it tastes like a balanced combination of peppercorn and crackers... with a light, airy taste. A moderate ABV makes it sufficiently sessionable (aka crushable). While it has a hazy, light appearance, its very satisfying for the style. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the saison-style; prefer the predictability of Pale Ales, IPAs, lagers, etc.... that said, a fine beer.
