Had this on tap last June at the Deschutes Portland location. Colour... cloudy gold with a thick off-white head. Nose... yeast and esters. Palate... lightly sweet and estery with bits of spent grain, honey, dried citrus and lightly bitter finish.

[2990-20100627] Tap. Orange juicy bread aroma. Hazy, light brown orange body with a creamy off-white head. Subtle orange hops flavour and mild grapefruit peel with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Smooth medium body. Quite lovely, a great summer patio selection.

Tan colored brew with a nice fluffed head. Sweet honey-pricked nose full of nectar and spices with a zephyr of wheat and yeastiness. Piny herbalness mingles upon the palate which becomes pleasant and tingly. Fine yeastiness throughout. Nice body, but fades towards the end.

"Brewed with Blackberry honey and spices," so the board says.

Hazy pour, very small head. This is a classic example of what was wrong with American Saisons until Boulevard, Upright, Pretty Things, etc., came onto the scene and stared to get it right (probably a few East Coasters I’ve missed too; can’t get those here.) In short, it’s the wrong yeast. Too heavy on the esters, spicy in the wrong way (not Fantome), this is closer to a Wit than to a Saison. The honey is there, it’s certainly drinkable, but it simply doesn’t represent for the US so while it went down smooth enough, I went home somewhat disappointed.
