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.

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.

Wow I am surprised that the scores are so low... I thought this was a pretty good Saison just a little heavier than most but still very refreshing. Try it again!

Caytinator (935) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Cloudy light copper color, hazy, no retention (good), lotsa head bubbles off. Bright fruity esters in the aroma, bright apricot, ripe peaches, taste sort of matches--rich, somewhat creamy body. Lotsa nice bitter aftertaste, appropriate for the style, very nicely done.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with white fizzy head. Aroma of marvelous funk with a nice citrus and grassiness. Flavor is much the same and dry. Mouthfeel is light body and fizzy carbonation. Overall, a very nice surprise!

bhensonb (10902) - 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!

VinegarStroke (270) - 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.

ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Location: Draft at The Queen Vic, 9/10/13

Aroma: The nose of this one is yeast and a little spicy, pepper, some fruit, and mild alcohol
Appearance: The pour is orange with a decent head and some nice lace as well
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, yeast, spice, and fruit, not all that sweet, but a solid flavor
Palate: The feel of this one is solid, but not great, thereís a little heat, and some plus carbonation
Overall Impression: Wow, this one has a much lower score than I would have guessed. I thought this was a pretty tasty Saison. I guess Iíll be one of its higher raters.

Bottle. Aroma is rich and funky with a mild sourness. Cloudy bright yellow. Good depth with a nice brett character and restrained spice. Very dry. A nice interpretation of the style.
