3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared april 5th 2013. I love being positively surprised and today this beer surprised me by being a lot better than what I’d heard. After rescuing most of the bottle due to the beer being a gusher, an inviting hazy yellow body with a good sized white head, holding an aroma of yeasty funk, lemon and wheat does a good impression on me. Taste is fruity and refreshing, lemon and yeast, with a dry palate, crisp malt and ginger. Good body for a 4,5, lasting refreshing spicy and dry aftertaste. Could have several of this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at ncbc. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a loose white head. Smells a little barnyardy at first but then goes over to grassy. Odd. Creamy medium body with soft carb, maybe a little flabby. Corn on the mid palate. Not a very effective interpretation of a saison.

Sweet and a little floral aroma with a golden color and small white head. Ooh. Nice. Little dry pear taste with a zingy after feel. I would very much like to see more saisons from San Diego. I know hops is king down there but lets try something new. Green Flash did a good job. Would drink this with a burger by the beach.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Yellow, opaque, white layer of residue on top. Grain and citrus in the aroma. Full, yeasty, bready, citrusy and peppery taste. heavy side of light bodied. Crisp and refreshing. Overall it seems pretty traditional, covering all the bases of an old farmhouse ale saison. Ok stuff.
