One of the 2011 Craft brewing Conference beers. Pours a darker gold. My notes say "bright, lively, yeasty, fruity, spicy." The finish was fairly heavily spiced and quite yeasty. This was nice but probably my least favorite of the 2011 CBC beers.

One of the CBC beers on tap at the brewery. Pour is transparent amber with creamy white head. Malt based nose, sweet and sugary. Honey yeast, and a nice zesty spice with an herbal hop back and touch of soap. The taste is light yeast, honey, a little sugary, a fair bit of zesty spice, notes of corrander, lemon, herbal tangy hops and a touch of bitterness. medium creamy body with light carbonation and fairly dry.

on tap at devils den in philly

Pours a fairly clear burnt orange with a fluff of white head, fades to cloud of retention with ringed layers of lacing.

Scents of pear, floral hops, fruit juiciness, apple skin, clove and spice.

Slight bite of floral hops with herbal base and peppery spice. Lots of fruit with pear, apple, and orange. Some bready malt with honey and caramel, fairly sweet overall. Finishes with a floral hop punch and residual fruit sweetness.

Medium body, decent carbonation, slightly creamy. Drinks nice, a bit sweet but otherwise a nicely balanced saison.

Bottle shared by Lee – thanks!

Pours a clear golden color with a white head that leaves decent lacing.

Smells of light malts with good amounts of pears, green apples, and white pepper. Also present are hints of musty hops.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Crisp light malts up front are joined quickly by ripe pear flavors. Midway through white pepper and hints of other indistinct spices come into play before they’re tempered by earthy and slightly musty hops. The hops carry through to a mildly bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with active carbonation.

Overall I think this beer was more crisp than the saison that is now retired. It could use some refinement but is worth a shot how it is if you see it around.
