From tap at Break Water Brewing company as Opal Belgian Saison. Pours hazy to murky yellow/orange with a lacing white head. Spiced and light wheaty aroma, light estery touch. Flavour is dry and fruity hops, mild acidic to sour with a light spice note swept through the beer from start to finish. Ends dry and mild spiced.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2009
Draft. An unclear golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of citrus, as well as light notes of wheat and a light acidity. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices, and a good deal of lemon, on a medium malty back ground, leading to a lightly tart finish.

On tap. Hazy yellow with an off-white head. Some discreet fruit in the nose. medium body, fruit and a little yeast and then something that reminds me of discreet Brett. Some yeast in the finish and again some light Bretty accents to balance the fruity sweetness. Interesting. 120709

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks. A lightly unclear orange to golden beer with a small, white head. Weak fruity aroma, pleasant, with some lemon and pale malts. The flavor is more interesting, but not much. Dry, with lemon some bitterness and pale malt notes. Lasting finish. Boring in a way, but sure refreshing and quenching. 130809

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Tap at Sacramento Brewing Company. Hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Definite aromas of sour and fruit. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is mildly Bretty with light stone fruit. Really rather peachy. Finish has a metallic note, but mild funk is the key note. Laced a bit. Very refreshing. Compares more than favorably to Ommegang Bier de Mars. Love saisons.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a finger’s worth of white foam. S: The nose is fairly fruity (tropical and stone fruits) and sweet with nice notes of citrus and a light hoppiness. T: The flavor is similarly fruity with lemon, peaches, and apricot? Some wheat and a light breadiness give the beer some backbone and a touch of bitterness for balance. M: The body is fairly light with a refreshing, crisp carbonation. D: I’ve been looking forward to trying this beer for awhile and it was actually pretty nice. If only Firestone would actually make these beers available more often.
