Pours light straw yellow like a ray of sunshine. Perfect haze. Nose is fantastic with lemon peel.light and sweet, a bit of honey and bread, a touch of herbal and pepper. Taste follows the nose all the way. there si a bright funk to this beer on the nose and on the palate. That lemon peel is just sweet and it won't let you see all the tartness of the flesh of the lemon but some of it seeps through. That funk makes your mouth water and this one finishes perfectly dry and with so much flavor.

August 28th, 2013 - Twisted Pine's saison is petite in smell, but bolder in flavor, casting out a nice assembly of light pear juice and vanilla ice cream, with a grainy aftertaste that cleans the palate and throat with each wave of sips. The aroma is harder to define. I get some light floral notes, and a bit of pear juice, but it's soft and a little too quiet. I blame the tasting glass.

A- pretty much spot on for a saison. Bright, hazy golden brew. Two fingers of frothy, pure white head. Lots of visible carbonation.

S- barnyard, citrus, banana, grains.

T- grainy, lots of citrus. Sadly, not as much funk as the aroma.

M- light bodied, lots of carbonation. Refreshing, watery finish.

O- it's a solid domestic saison offering.

Pours a hazy, pale golden color with a soapy white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of some grassy hops, light fruits, and grainy malts.

Tastes of the grainy malts with plenty of saison goodness. Malts lead off with a grainy sweetness. This gives way to some banana and apricot fruitiness. Spicy yeast notes of clove and coriander add in next. Touches of funk come in towards the end. Finishes with more sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nicely done saison and worth checking out.

Very clear, crisp Saison. It is, however, rather boring on the Farmhouse ale side of things.

Poured into a balloon glass.

An orb of light golden straw underneath a foamy white head. Bready yeast and faint pepper mingle with some banana aromas. The taste copies the aroma well and the cracked pepper emerges a little more, adding a nice spicy element. The beer goes down crisp.

Overall, a very tasty saison.

This beer has a light crisp flavor. Color is perfect. Reigning Australian Beer Cup winner beating out the Saison from Europe. The refreshing flavor adds to the delight of drinking this summer beer. Great way to beat the heat. The Saison is my favorite farm house style beer that Twisted Pine has offered.

a solid summer saison here, good session beer, and like the freedom tickler i recently enjoyed from oskar blues, its not trying to be overly complex, just exist as an interesting enough alternative to the other summer beers out there. i think it accomplishes that in spades, although it does of course lack in depth and quality behind some of the best examples of the style out there. i dont reckon this was made to compete with those beers though, and it finds a comfortable niche elsewhere. very very pale watery look to it, heady though, and lots of bubbles in this one, as it should be. the nose is a mild saison yeast, less frenchy than others which i like, and perfectly dry, which is also important for me in a summer seasonal. a fair degree of funk to it too, considering there is no brett in here, its got a stable-like damp straw characteristic thats really nice, old timey, and fitting. light hops additions in the finsih fit in well too, and this drinks down like water, even though the carbonation is pretty high, its just such a poundable beer, perfect for hot weather. twisted pine takes some undue flack i think, and its beers like this that keep me defending their model. worth trying in the heat.

22 oz. bomber.

pours out a very pale gold colour with incredible active carbonation holding up an immense inch high eggshell white head. belgian lace. peppery spice and lemon aroma supported by a pilsneresque malt base. the taste follows suit...nuanced cracker like maltiness blanketed by a white pepper spice note. slightly tart. there is a noticeable hop layer in the flavour profile that has both spicy saaz notes and a hint of domestic NW fruitiness. it's also a bit yeasty as per the style...finishing on the dry side. quite quenchable. this saison is a bit light in the body, with a dry, crisp, lip smacking mouthfeel. nice drinkability.

overall...this one scores points for it crispness and quenching qualities, but lacks in the taste department. I've been sitting on two bottles for a long time and wonder if this is past its prime. i'm not a great saison drinking mind but this offering failed to pique my interest.
