Pours a golden body with a white head with good retention. Aromas are bursting with bakery fresh bread and yeastiness, with a strong savory notes. Flavors of sourdough bread with honey on top. A pleasant sourness lingers long. A layered, delicious brew brew.

3.81/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

appearance; deep yellow, lots of large, visible bubbles, decent head but with little retention.

smell; smelled very muck like a pilsner, yeasty, but with an added blend of herbs.

taste; yeast, bread, sour grapes, orange peel, herbs, very unique and not unpleasant.

mouthfeel; light bodied and pretty fizzy.

overall; something worth buying for the unique blend of flavors, but you wouldnt buy it again.

22oz bottle, ~a month old. Review from notes.

Pale yellow, slightly cloudy, not much head or lace. Smell is yeast must and English hops. Taste is mostly clean yeast; buttery pepper, clove, and banana, some floral hops, sour, lemon, but with a plastic-y cardboard finish.

Good on a hot day. Reminded me of oarsman with its sour twist.

22oz bomber. Enjoy before 11/21/2014. Served in a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a bright yellow color with 2 fingers of a white soapy head that settles to a thin coating. Body is lightly hazy with some fine visible sediment and quite a bit of visible carbonation.

Smell: Lemon, orange, coriander, black pepper, pear, brett character but not particularly funky.

Taste: Sweet bready malt upfront followed by tons of yeast character. Banana, clove, pear, spices, and perhaps a hint of white grape. Not much hop character but there is a mild to medium lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp. Carbonation borders on high, but not to the point of being distracting.

Overall: Pretty nice saison and a good bang for your buck.

3.74/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pretty golden beer with a reasonable head, fading out to some minor lacing.

S - The funk is strong with this one - which is not unexpected. But there is a certain undercurrent of rubber that I found distracting.

T - A very crisp beer, with clean, clear notes of pear and stone fruits, as well a some bread notes and peppery spice. Unfortunately, the element of rubber and bandaids remained, though backgrounded, coming more forward in the finish. It is not an uncommon note for a yeast-based brew. If the finish were cleaner, I'd have rated this much higher however.

M - Crisp, clean and extremely easy to drink.

O - This is generally a very good beer. I think the yeast let loose a few rogue elements that detract slightly, but I still found the beer both approachable and enjoyable.
