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.
