Soft white pepper. Mild funk. Light yeast and bread. Mild flavors but good and refreshing.

Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Dense amber body, orange hints with a gray-white layer of foam on top. Gummy aroma, lots of Belgian yeast, damp hay, bubblegum, white pepper, a touch of spruce, small medicinal tones, a touch of caramel. Flavor is sweeter than expected for a saison. Burnt bread, hints of caramel, maybe even some toffee. Bubblegum, spruce, light mint, white pepper, & a bready Belgian yeast finish that lingers. Not bad, but doesn’t remind me of a saison.

Very mild for a saison. Not much yeasty, funk, or floral character. A bit more of a tea undertaste. Not bad, and easily drinkable.

Very hazy amber beer. Small white head. Strong caramel nose. Light crisp palate. Strong butterscotch and caramel. A trace of citrus hop. Finishes dry. Very odd. Way too much butterscotch - diacetyl? Or some weird yeast?

12oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. 2011 Summer Solstice. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy and fizzy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fairly sweetly malted with some florals and a bit of a tart citrus and apple. Some bready caramels and a bit of a honey sweetness. Flavor is very sweet again with a more distinct, fruity tartness...and none of it seems to balance very well. Caramel and honey bread, tart apples and lemons, a bit of a coriander spice, and a yeasty twang. Finishes dry with a light, spicy bitterness and an odd mix of sweet malts and tart fruits. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a fizzy carbonation. Overall, another disappointing bottle from these guys. I loved the beers I had on tap at the brewpub, but these summer solstice bottles just aren’t very good. This isn’t absolutely terrible, but it’s not that good.

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Sean. Aroma has an aged malt component. Flavors are kind of messy. Some indiscriminate spice and wet cardboard. There’s even the charaterisitc Kuhnhenn twang that’s oh so unfortunately familiar. In some ways, this is like the trans-Atlantic notion of Fantome, but without a pop. One-dimensional. There’s some definite cooked corn in here. Really feels like sloppy brewing. Bad DMS problem, bad beer.

Bottle at James’ mead tasting. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Old malt and a touch of sweetness. A bit of age and oxidization. Sweet and toasty, slight sour touches around the edges. Sweet malt on the finish.
