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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
