Transfer from BA review on 8-9-13- Served on pint in a tulip glass Appearance – The beer is served a light golden yellow color with one finger of foamy white head. The head fades slowly over time leaving a wonderful level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer Is mainly of a citrus lemon and light bready smell mixed with aromas of yeast and a bit of spice of clove and coriander. Along with these aromas are some smells of hay and a bit of a grassy smell mixing with a little bit of a pear and apple sweetness to round out the aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a light biscuit flavor mixed with some flavors of lemon citrus upfront. As the flavor advances, some light yeast tastes greet the tongue. The yeast brings some spice along with it, bringing to the tongue some flavors of clove and coriander. The taste takes on some wheat and light fruit flavors along with a light grassy and earthy flavor at the end of the taste to leave a rather light and crisp flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is very light and thin with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. The body is actually a little too thin for the brew even at its low abv., never really allowing any of the flavors time to linger on the tongue. Overall – While it was quite light and rather crisp it was a little weak in flavor and a little too watery for a saison for my taste. Just OK.

Has a nice fresh aroma. Slightly citric and spicy taste that is quite good. However I don’t like the finish that much, it’s too dry and dull. But it’s overall a good beer.

bartlebier (1724) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
650ml bottle, bb? merci embrouille! Clean, light, sessionable New World rendition of the style, subtly redolent with a range of spices and culinary accompaniments to Californian cuisine: tangerine, lemongrass, Sezuan pepper, clotted cream, going on indeed green tomatoes. Not getting much funk or any non-stainless steel-concocted aromas, the ¿dryhopped dryness a means to easygoing sessionability, going on maracuja bubblegum. Careless summer refreshener, - pay the field workers a Cupertino day’s ransom and send them out with a case of this?

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a shady yellow, under a firm shiny white head. Dry tropical-fruity nose, with a fine peppery touch. Hint of leafy hops. Properly light-bodied. Fine sparkling carbonation. Taste has fresh lemony fruitiness. Hint of mild resiny bitterness and a fresh and light sourness. Dry, restrained malt body. Very refreshing, quite so moreish. [Bottle from Kihoskh, København]

Klar lys gyllen med et hvit skum som festet seg litt i glassveggen. Aroma av meldt, sitrus, gress og krydder. Smaken følger aroma, men fer innslag av søte frukter og banan også mer innslag av hvete. Fin bitterhet i avsluttningen.

Stuedmaster (212) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours hazy light gold with a decent white head that retains. Aroma of wheat, coriander, lemon, ginger, pepper, slight grass. Flavor is dry with light bitterness, lightly sour. Light to medium body, slick texture, lively carb,, and clean, sweet/sour finish. Not as distinct as many saisons, but a decent brew which is refreshing and crisp.

RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Clear bright golden yellow with an enormous fluffy white head and great lacing. Standard saison aromas of bubblegum, Belgian yeast, pepper, and clove. Lightly sweet, lightly hopped, a bit of tartness pokes through toward the end. Light body, brightly effervescent, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Extraordinarily refreshing.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2014
Very nice yellow color. slightly dull Unfortunately, not quite fresh. Fine easy-drinking creamy beer with fine carbonation. But I’m missing is a little more spicy notes from the yeast.
