Whee, a gusher! Pours a hazy straw color with surprisingly only a one finger thick head. Smell: mild straw and bready aromas, soft banana and pear, spice note. Taste: lemon, green banana, then acetic cutting through very light breadiness and wheat cracker. Medium bodied, tons of soft carbonation throughout, enough to be fatiguing by the end of the bomber. Pretty relaxed, tasty.

At Haven's 4th anniversary boogie down in Orange, CA.

This thang was good, it was real good. Raul would like to be more well versed in the Saison community, but as far as he knows, this lil sucker fits in like Lucky Lucciano.

Tart, a bit sweet, but not gloriously ecstafying (which should be a word) like seeing Behati Prinsloo for the first time.

Serving type: on-tap

Arrives a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Good retention, decent lace but it fades.
Smell is fruity, light malt, yeast, slight hops. Good balance.
Taste is fruity, yeast, lighter malt and some hops. Again, good balance.
Somewhat acidic, tangy really. Slightly drying without much aftertaste. A pretty good example, IMO.

Bottle to tulip. Pours light clear golden with lots of bubbles and a big fluffy white head. Somewhat yeasty dry aroma for a hefe--though that seems to be what they’re going for here--with light clove, banana, and tart apples. Crisp bitter and prickly carbonation up front, some sweet apples in the middle, finishing with a yeasty wheat kick. Some white wine qualities here. Dry on the tongue and easy drinking. A definite summer brew.
