Tap @ Cigar City: Pours a misty yellow color with a light white head. The nose is nice and peppery with the usual saison aroma; clean pilsner malts and fresh spicy yeast. The flavor is amplified with a big wheat inspired mouthfeel and a spicy finish. Nice saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ CCB. Slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Nose is slightly fruity with notes of peach and apple, light grain, spicy yeast, and soft funk. Medium to light body with a crisp mouth feel and good carbonation. Flavor is balanced between fruity citrus and peach esters, clove spiciness, grainy malt, and mild funk, clean fermentation. Finishes earthy with a restrained tartness. Highly drinkable.

On draft at the much-disputed Tasting Room. Pours a slightly-hazy (almost clear) yellow gold with a frothy white head. Nose is some malt, citrus, a small bit of brett, and a George-Clinton-turned-down amount of funk. Flavor is superb: mild malt presence, mild citrus presence, slight brett, and perfectly balanced saisonness. Please bottle this! Very enjoyable and simply outstanding- a small ABV and huge amount of flavor packed into this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden pour with a thin white head. Fruity, slightly tart, Belgian yeast aroma. Has a nice light body, some light fruit notes, touches of spices in the taste. Easy going session Saison and it quickly became my wife’s favorite CCB beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2010 Draft. Pours a slightly hazed yellow color wih a snow white head. Nice lace left on the glass as the head settles. Aroma is banana and clove and slightly sweet. The taste has a nice citrus lemon quality along with the Belgian notes of banana and clove. Some minimal hop bite to it. Light/medium mouthfeel. This is a really nice drinking beer being well balanced and not too high abv where you can enjoy it all day.
