3.51/5  rDev -12%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at O'Brien's Pub in San Diego, CA.

Pours a clear yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line 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 mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap

This arrived as a dark yellow with a fairly thin head. Lace is minimal.

The smell is pretty decent, but seem to be either dominated by one herb or simply lacking any others. The taste is similar, in that it's somewhat lacking in variety and the interesting flavors brought forth by other saisons. Mouthfeel suffers along these lines as well. The simplicity doesn't suit the style. The drinkability is still good.

Frosted neon orange opaqueness in the glass. Exciting unfiltered saison looks. Looks almost exactly like metameusel. Still in the glass with minimal haze or head. Smells kinda nasty, like cat piss and lemon, edged with some stank rotting fruit.

Tastes like a glass of cat piss pumped up with lemon extract -- Like a weird cheese that you like even though you don't. Salty edges. Not sweet -- mealy, like banana chips. Notes of prunes, sharp citrus, soap. Overripe fruit and mouth-puckering cranberry tartness. Supersharp carbonation.

A beer I can respect, but really not my cup of tea, or brew -- or cat piss for that matter.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewpub. So-so saison, certainly displaying white pepper, coriander, and yeast which is an obstacle. Not a lot of inviting spices, however. Quaffable. Blonde coloured body. Merely hint of lemon. Appropriately carbonated. Would like some more bold taste.

Served in a footed glass at the brewery.

A: No head. Hazy gold.

S: Fruity and softly pleasant. Very saison-like.

T: Good but not great. Not strange enough for me. Dry yeast, gentle floral-fruit with a slightly spicy kick. Good yeast, decent beer.

M: Carbonated, spicy, and good enough.

O: Recommended for people who like saisons. I probably won't have another.

572nd Review on BA
Growler to Tulip

Thanks to BA daysinthewake for the hookup

App- The color of pure gold with a well capped two finger head. Nice fingers of cling but not the most impressive saison I've seen.

Smell- Its not what I was hoping for. Its a saison but more malty? Its lacking a lightness to it. More heavy on the nose.

Taste- Taste follows the nose a bit but the malts thin out a little and get a little bread and butter.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbed. A little bit of an aspirin flavor remains to me. Wasnt bad just there.

Drink- Vinny always pushes a style and this was a thicker Saison to say the least. Was tasty, pretty good. Probably wont come back to it though.
