Can from Bobís

Interesting to do a saison as oneís harvest ale. Clear gold pour, white head. This is pretty much your classic estery American saison, all banana and fruit and very little funk, a bit sweet, pepper and hops in the close. Itís not bad, but itís not something Iím eager to through can after can of the way I was with Frementís summer APA. In fact, I fear the rest of the sixpack is going to join the í13 celebration ale rotting in the garage.

Can shared by Bob, thanks. Gold color. Some sweetness and I do taste some apple, but the flavor and aromas are light and there is not much here. I didnít enjoy this as much as the other raters in the group.

On tap at the brewery. Amber with bubbly cream head. Light farmouse with some citrus and grapefruit, chardonnay, bit of spice, on the finish but tasty.

Growler fill from Maggieís in Ferndale,WA. Has the saison spice character, though itís a little mild. average carbonation, medium body, but overall a nice easy drinking beer.

Growler from the brewery. Pours golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is spicy dry floral notes with some fruit as well. Taste is crisp dry light malt with a yeasty; slightly sweet, peppery finish. Their description is spot on - I could see this appealing to a white wine drinker. Easy drinking, particularly for the abv. Interesting take on a fall seasonal, most breweries head in the opposite direction from this... nice changeup this time of year. Not sure the name suits this one well though... I think most people will anticipate something else entirely.

Off orange appearance. No head Bit of citrus and lemon zest on the nose. Wheat and rye as well Pretty sweet like lemon meringue on the tongue. Bitter bit fleeting with citrus and honey. Maybe a bit of cedar forward notes and floral hibiscus

Pours hazy yellow, finger white head. Smell citrusy lemon zest and a bit rustic. Taste orangy, citrus, peppery, slight tang. Sweet and easy drinking. Good fall beer.

Good saison. All the notes one expects are there. I'm surprised how European this tastes, but for the seemingly usual American lack of carbonation. Solid B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
