On tap at Congregation Ale House in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and very easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a champagne bottle into a Sam perfect pint glass.

Pours cloudy pale yellow, dirty blond-ish. Fizzy white foam. Heavy foam settles slow. Funky yeasty smell. Earthy. Taste is clean citrussy, very very dry. Light finish. Fades into a mild hop close. Light and easy. Excellent.

Serving type: bottle

On-tap at Armsby Abbey.

A- Served from the tap into a signature DuPont slim glass that appears to hold about 12oz. Massive fluffy white head forms and has great retention. Each sip reveals distinct rings of lace.

S- This aroma basically defines classic Saison yeast to me. A great balance of fruity, floral and peppercorn spice notes. Certainly a bit of light malts and bread behind the yeast.

T- Follows the nose but some more complexity adds on here. Yeast lends a plethora of flavors like floral, spicy, raisin, pepper, coriander, herbal, banana and clove. It all blends very well. Like bread, cracker malt and hops balance it out. Hops are spicy, herbal and earthy.

MF- Dried out light body with smooth silky carbonation. Nice clean bitterness in the palate.

A true classic that took me long enough to review. Compare all Saison to this. I would have to say the tap was missing slight skunk the bottles can have.
