COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth ale tastes citrusy with yeasty notes and a hint of peppery spice. Its dry finish and mild carbonation make it perfect for pairing with grilled chicken, rich fish dishes, and cheeses like camembert and brie.

Type: 750ml (25.3 oz.) bottle Glass: Fullerís London pint glass From: Armada Wine & Beer Merchant in Santa Barbara, Calif. Price: $11.99 Purchased: July 4, 2014 Consumed: July 5, 2014 Misc.: Batch No. 009; Bottled on Feb. 3, 2014 Poured an orange, hazy color with 5-to-6 fingers of rocky white head. Average amount of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Excellent amount of foamy retention on the top all the way down. Smelled green grapes, peppery spices, banana, caramel, citrus notes, kiwi, honey, wheat, green apple and grassy notes. Taste was more flavorful than the nose. Got green apple, caramel apple, green grapes, kiwi, honey wheat, citrus notes, peppery spices, banana and slight woody notes. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly fruity, abrupt finish. Pretty decent for the style, but not worth the $11.99 price tag.

Gift from ma. Well carbonated, unlike other adelberts beers this cork didnt explode but did have a great head. Pour was an expected funky, merky, and cloudy brown color. Nose is yeasty and fruity. Taste the same.

Never heard of Adelbertís, but ran into a bottle when wandering amongst the glass bottle minions that now define most beer sections in my area these days. You have to love this heyday of craft beer. I remember the heyday of the Internet -- in 1999, people walking by at the popular restaurant and youíd say "he just cashed out from coolidea.com and is now worth 100 Million" and we all thought we also had a shot at the gold ring. Saisons are now in fashion, and this is a beer that makes me think of those days. The brand stood out -- understated, but with gravitas. When I taste this beer it is everything I expect from a Saison -- a bit of clove spice, a bit of earth leather funk, well carbonated, dry, extremely drinkable, and a great antidote to hops an malts that define many other beer styles. Whether or not Adelbertís will get the credit for this beer is up to the quality of their marketing and distribution and the rest of you.

kevinator (846) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2014
A saison with a Belgian twist. Citrus, fruity and floral aroma. Slight golden color with a fizzy white head. Full but light palate with good carbonation. Typical sweet and fruity saison flavors with a hint of caramel and spice from the yeast. It goes down easy with a hint of alcohol.

VinegarStroke (262) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle (750mL): Hazy, deep honey with thick head and excellent lace. Very lifted clean fruity beer. Off dry, not sour and medium low bitterness. Clean fruity palate. Lovely length, weight and fruity flavor. Very sound. High alcohol and so too hot and not refreshing. Classic over the top American Beverage when they almost had it right.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 18, 2014
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a large frothy white head. Aroma is spicy, grassy, citrus, earthy. Tickles the nostrils. Med body or better. Hits like a tripel, but ... Hmm.... Itís a spicy, earthy tripel sort of thing. Itís Belgian allover. Iím not sure this fits the alleged style, but itís very tasty stuff. Finishing like Grains of Paradise. And a sort of apple fruit ester. This is very unusual? Good tho!

Smell is yeasty must. Taste is dry thin and crisp. Very refreshing and better than expected. Quite drinkable. No hint of the higher alcohol content either.
