Bottle pour at the Protest Bottle Share For LA Beer Week held at Red Carpet Wine in Glendale, CA.

Thanks to vurt for sharing this one.

Bottled 2/2013. Bottle # 1450.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, floral, herbal, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with floral and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice floral and herbal aromas and flavors.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with one finger of white head.

The aroma is very flowery, lavendar, sage even a little bit like roses up front. This mixes together with some herbal hop aromas. Some spicy Belgian saison yeast in the background with pepper and cloves.

The taste is very well balanced, definitely more of the lavendar up front with some other less discernible flowery flavors, more like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers that doesn't have one dominant smell. Just enough spiciness from the yeast to cut through the flowery taste.

Mouthfeel is excellent, really smooth, just enough body but very easy drinking.

Overall this is an interesting saison, worth trying if you like the style but I probably won't be getting it again.

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thick collar around the edge of the glass and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of flowers are present in the nose—it's tough to pinpoint exactly what type of flowers were used but I seem to detect some Gerbera daisies. It's almost like smelling a fresh bouquet of flowers.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of floral flavors along with some subtle hints of sweetness. Neither spices nor yeast are noticeable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No dryness is perceptible.
O: This is a light and easy to drink saison that could make for a good selection on a spring day.

This was a very interesting beer with a very strong flower smell, like a lavender.

The beer was hazy and light in color and must have had at least a little wheat in the mash.

A flowery sweet taste went very well with the aroma that was present while drinking.

The beer had a medium body.

Aftertaste was a little bit of flowery/hoppy taste

A decent beer but not something I would want to have more than occasionally.
