4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slight sour aroma. Mild on the palate. A light version of a Saison aka Farmhouse Ale. Pretty easy to drink.

Can. Pours a hazy gold with a bright white head. Aroma of yeast, cardamon, and lemon. Flavor was herbal with cardamon, yeast, lemon, citrus and had a peppery spiciness

An interesting take from an audacious brewery. Not a typical saison -- a positive for an American brewery given Old World style. Nice spice due to cardamon with the alcohol providing weight and finish. Eminently drinkable.

can. Hazy golden with one finger head. Very nice yeast on this one. Mild, but flavorful. Spicing is light to medium. A pleasant surprise.

Really great spiced saison. Highly underrated IMO. Excellent flavor and aroma, with nice body and finish. Pleasant. I would definitely drink this again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours a cloudy yellow with thick white head. Lemon aroma. Seems like I can taste the alcohol. The beginning is spicy and citrusy and it finishes with a hop bite. A little stronger and heavier than I was expecting but it grows on you as you drink it. Low rating more indicative to the style not being my favorite. 21st is new to my market so I’m trying them all and overall they are very nice.

Can dated Enjoy by 4.30.2015 and cracked the top to an aroma of light, earthy spices and Belgian yeast.
Pour is honey-lemon with a soft head, dissipating almost as fast as it rises. Lemony flavor and a lightly sour taste that pulls under the back of my tongue creating a bit of a salivary response. The finish is dry, but short, the swallow leaving an oily feeling across my tongue and the carbonation just saving it from being flat there. Not a bad experience, but nothing terribly exciting either.

Great example for an American style Belgian Session. I’m sure medieval Belgian Monks would have approved and would have joined forces with Washington to perfect his Sneak Attack.
21st Amendment: Please keep up your creativity, and I hope you will soon come up with the perfect CALI/ US Piisner, that combines the greatness of the west with some flavor of the East, and of course the NOBLE hops from the ’old world’

On tap at Evernote. Aroma is mild funk, hay, potpourri. Taste is tart citrus peels, mild funkiness, some spiced Belgian-style notes. I liked the tarter notes but something doesn’t really meld well here.
