On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden to amber with a thick, persistent white head. Lots and lots of lacing down the glass. The perfect saison pour? I don't see how it could get better.

A wonderful aroma: citrus, namely lemon and some orange, barnyard, a touch of horse blanket/farmhouse, and a touch of white fruit, perhaps apple or pear. This beer's aroma grows and magnifies as it warms; it's tremendous.

A classic saison, if such a thing existed. The flavors consist of sweet fruit, barnyard/horse blanket, a touch of funky yeast character, and some mild bitterness. Though it sounds funky, this beer is accessible as they come and incredibly drinkable.

Light to medium mouthfeel. A pleasure to drink.

A really fantastic saison. This might be the classic, benchmark, standard for the style--and I wouldn't argue the point.
