I picked up this 22 oz. at the BevMo! in West Hollywood recently. Had a West Coast Belgian beer session with the missus where we tried this and Green Flashs 3rd Anniversary Tripel. Sadly, both were none too impressive.
The color was a straw yellow with virtually no head. The aroma was pleasing: lemon, nutmeg and a kick of coriander. The taste was subtle but sweet: apple and lemon but not the tart I generally associated with a saison. It had some alcohol that came through.
Overall the beer was the better of the two but I dont think Ill rush out to buy it again.

Appearance: Clear gold with a pure white head. Nice density and retention. Pretty decent lacing as well.
Smell: Not bad; a nice blend of clovey, funky yeast spice, citrus and peach with a bit of Saaz-like hops. Authentic.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Hey, pretty good. Yeast is a bit hot in its, uh, pepperiness, but you get a lush mouthfeel of orange, peach with some drying hops in the finish to clean it up. The mouthfeel is even better, coating, but quite crisp and tight.
Drinkability: Well, I don't think the folks at Dupont or Fantome are quaking in their boots, but for a small, local brewer, this is a very solid effort. And, at about $3.50 a bomber, one anyone can enjoy guilt-free. Really enjoyed it.

Pours a golden hazy color with an orange hue, no head, and little carb action.
Has a citrus banana hops smell with a caramel malt background.
Lightly/mod sweet /acidic, light bitterness, kind of a bland grainy malt, and lemon hops sourness.
Light/med bodied, almost warery texture, almost flat carb, and a slight astringent finish.
Very drinkable although some what bland with a slight lemon sourness aftertaste.

Something a little different from Coast Range. Appearantly, they've developed a decent line of artisianal brews. The first offering is this Saison , the "seven" coming from the use of lucky tank number seven at the brewery. The Farmhouse line also includes an IPA and a Porter.
Pours out dark yellowish gold. It's hazy, but not so much that it could be called cloudy. Bubbly white head tops off a good looking beer.
The smell really brings the funk, tossing in a little hop spiciness and fruit sweetness.
More spice in the taste. Apple cider and grapefruit zest, with a crisp hop bite. Enough carbonation to impart a slight champagne bubbliness without masking any flavor.
A worthy addition to the West Coast Saison scene, such as it is.
