COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

JHargis (1) - - JAN 25, 2016 does not count
Purchased a 750ml bottle from brewery location in Paso Robles.Poured in a Delerium tulip glass. Straw and golden color with a two finger head and dissipating lacing. Aromas of lemongrass, zest, peppercorns, barnyard funk, malt sweet and hints of hop fruit esters. Tastes of sweet white grape, slightly acidic yet layered with tartness and spice from the Brett. A Mellow, funky, flavorful finish that resembles a champagne or white wine. Delicious, complex, distinctive. A great brew from Firestone.

Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw body. The aroma is fresh cut orange and lemon zest. The taste light and refreshing but contains flavor complexity: orange, tart, lemon. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Quite nice.

Fashawn (514) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 18, 2016
Birra molto valida per i californiani, aroma do cantina, leggero formaggio, grano ed erba appena tagliati, e qualche agrumi. In bocca sprigiona una nota rustica, data dalla paglia, quasi acida con gli agrumi che assumono il controllo prima dinlasciare spazio ad un amaro verde, ripulite. Buona Carbonatazione corpo medio, qusi snello, sì lascia bere facilmente.

simcoe_citra (20) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Bomber from Brewdog online shop. Bottled 8 months ago. Lemons and apricot aromas. Lovely yellow colour with soft, thick white head. Tastes fabulous! Peppery peaches and lemon. Little bit of bite on the finish which makes you want another sip. Highly recommended. Thanks FW

Capa (2542) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Ultra clear yellow with a white head. A bit of a spicy aroma with earthy rustic notes, malt, and lemon. Thin to medium body. Flavor is Lemon focused with medium earthy notes, yeast spice, and a hint of candied fruit. Pretty solid saison.

A little sour, but I may have poured some of the sediment in. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crlnts (390) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 19, 2015
Clear yellow, nice white head. As far as saisons go, not my fav’. The yeast is a bit too present, even for this style. More on the golden belgian ale side even though the border is object able.

Cloudy healthy brown pour with thin haze of white on top. Strong lemon lime rind aroma, light but present Belgian yeast with notes of clove, cracked pepper. Average carbonation perhaps lovely for the style, mouthfeel is slightly watery, finish is quite clean. Strong lemon lime zest in flavor too, Belgian yeast mixes nicely with some subtle soap and florals, pepper and clove, Orange is distinctly evident as well. Unique blend of robust saison and crisp citrusy west coast pale ale. Well executed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
