3.51/5 rDev -11.8%
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.

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.

From a growler. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy with a light mineral note, a hint of apple, and a peppery note. The Taste is dry and earthy with a bit of pepper. The finish is dry and earthy with some light apricot. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A pretty solid American Saison.

Imbibed on tap at Russian River Brewing on 9/30/12. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a hazy orange with thin, irregular white head. Lots of spices: clove, pepper, but very light with some coriander and banana. Lots of lemon in the nose. Malt is perceptible, but not enough to describe other than light. Pungent, slightly barnyard yeast with a swirl. Taste starts with with honey-like sweetness and turns pungent quickly. Orange and some grapefruit citrus come next followed by a soft bitterness and nectar with hay. Feel is slightly viscous, finish dry.
It becomes a little too thick over time, but I like the spiciness. Very complex, and overall light Saison. I wish I could manipulate yeast the way RRBC does.

12oz teardrop Belgian glass
Enjoyed at the brew pub in Santa Rosa, CA on 9/5/12
A: This one came out a hazy yellow/gold color. There was some nice carbonation as well. Some sticky bright white lacing that left lots on glass.
S: On the nose, I got the typical spicy and yeasty aromas. Definitely some pepper.
T: This is a nice little Saison. The taste follows the smells that I was pulling. You get that spicy pepper on the front of the tongue. Then some of that farmhouse like yeast flavor in the mid mouth with a nice dry finish. Very crisp and refreshing with an ABV that is hidden well.
M: It's medium bodied, good Saison.

On tap at the source.
A: Pours a slightly hazy egg yolk yellow with a 1" which head which fades to the rim leaving stringers and spots of lace.
N: Peppery spice, bready yeast, hay/grass. Slightly musty grape skins, floral esters and herbs.
T: Yeasty and spicy (pepper, cloves), lemon citrus. Fairly straight forward Saison.
M: Semi-moderate body with medium carbonation. Dry and semi-bitter with a mildly prickly finish.
O: Basically good, refreshing, and easy to drink.
