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 Flash’s 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 don’t think I’ll rush out to buy it again. (579 characters)

3.95/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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. (708 characters)

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

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. (424 characters)

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. (749 characters)
