Enjoyed a draft at Basso’s in St Louis. A very solid effort by 4 Hand brewery. While saissons are not for everyone, those who like saissons will enjoy this. Much better than its class ranking.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap @ 4 Hands. Pours a bright golden color with a white head. Starts off with kind of a weird ketchup aroma. Really sweet pear, hints of acidic apple, sweet sugar, and some bread. Subtle spice and yeast as well. Flavor is heavy on the sugar and sweetness. Lots of pear and baked apple. Light yeast, spice, and grassy hops. Some orange and lemon peel, too.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle shared around a campfire in the Root Glen - Hamilton College, Clinton, NY. Thanks to the Duke for this one. Solid beer. Moderately sweet with some herbal qualities, sugary pale and doughy bread. Modest Belgian yeast expression. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly bitter to finish with some piney herbs and more sweet, pale bread. Good stuff.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a pale straw yellow hue, touches of lemon, frothy whitish ring laces ok. Dies down, mellow ring. Aromas are a touch fruity, gentle pear and spuce. Touches of straw, mellow pepper and spicy yeast. Initial is a bit dry and spicy, mellow fruity ester, straw and pear. Touchges of bread, mellow citrus and earth. Middle shows a bit more pear quickly leading into grainy malts, bread dough, touches of straw and Siason yeast spice. Mellow tart pear, faint white grape. Backend is dry, a bit yeasty and spicy. Some earthiness, spice and mellow estery trails. Solid, interesting, not sweet but well integrated. The pepper strikes a bit on that backend and finish and keeps it interesting.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Taster on tap at iTAP-CWE in STL during RBSG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Interesting fruity aroma. Pear, white pepper, definitely get that. Peppery taste, moderate sweet. Solid, interesting stuff to try. 7/3/7/3/12

Repeat rate on tap at the brewery during RBSG: Clear golden color. Thin white head. Decent loose bits of lace. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Grassy, zesty spicy aroma. Some belgian yeast. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Decent farmhouse, for me. 6/3/6/4/13 [original scores kept - had a fresher palate during the 1st rate]
