4.08/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
picked up a 22 oz from the Beer Junction in West Seattle. poured into pint glass.
pours a great off-white two-finger head with moderate lacing. body is pale champagne colored and slightly hazy.
smell is of coriander, citrus, and orange peels. very hop and floral aroma.
taste is different, very nice. sort of has a sour mash whiskey vibe. basic foundation goes back to coriander and hops.
there's a robust - almost intense cherry-like and "dry" red wine on-bringing, best way I can think to describe it. aftertaste is very jumpy on the palette.
a funky and unique beer. not my favorite, but I can definitely see the sense and sensibility in its novelty and respectfully so.

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.
Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.
Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.
Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.
Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
