Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber color with a white head and just a little lacing. Aroma is spicy, clove, some lime citrus. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, a little cereal, clove, some pepper spiciness, a touch of lime, with a little spicy clove finish. Interesting.

Full-on saison here. SUper tart and tangy, super super tangy. Lime leaves add some tropical citrus, sicuan adds a backing spice but not "hot" or tongue-numbing.

On tap at the source... Pours with a slight haze an orangey hue and topped with a creamy white head... Aroma of big lemongrass and peppercorn notes more emphatic in the former. Not as yeasty as most saisony tend to be these days. Nice, refreshing but pretty lemon and pepper forward... Flavors are big on a semi-tart yet sweet lemongrass and spicy pepper corn notes. Again, mildly sweet towards the beginning and middle but tarts up just a bit beyond that. Medium bodied with expected carbonation. Pretty assertive on with the lemon and spice but it works out pretty well.

Flight on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). First visit opening week. Pours a nice hazy orange gold hue, darker body shows some deepness, good haze, and mellow glow throughout, almost a honey color. A frothy creamy whitish head sits as a firm layer, dies to a thicker ring and laces ok. Aromas are spicy, firm Belgian yeast presence is a bit raw, grainy, bread dough and bakers yeast. Spiciness grows as it warms, black pepper accents and a leafy earthy feel. Touches of earth, faint citrusy touch. Some mellow fruit. Pretty solid. Initial is medium bodied, a nice fruity quality up front shows apple, grapefruit, pear, pineapple. Mellow bread, dough, some more citrus. Doughy malt, some yeast, gentle spiciness. Floral, earth. Middle is a touch more just hodling onto the front’s coattails. Mellow sweetness, decent body. Backend starts to show some different appeal. Faint pepper element starts slowly on the palate, gentle yeastiness and more fruit linger on. Pear, gentle sweetness is still there but that telltale spice is presence. A bit of yeast, peach, and mellow yeasty element as we finish. A bit sweet back there, a crashing dryness would be nice. But the backend, aside from the pepper’s emergence, doesn’t do much. Needs to evolve a bit into the back and finish, as it remains a bit sticky and stale. Still, a good start on a house beer within a style that is terribly easy to nitpick.

Had this on draft at DryHop on opening night. Orange pour. Spicy and sweet aroma. This tastes more like an IPA than a Saison to me. Usually don't like saisons but really enjoyed this. Good hops and floral taste.
