A refreshingly light, yet very complex flavor gives this one a very european ’Savoir Faire’. From Lagunitas Brewing: "The style of this one is tough to pinpoint--we rarely brew beers to fit any
particular style. Saison is pretty close-- we used Westmalle
yeast on a nice light ale, and the result is what we like to call an Uzbeki Raga Ale." Tony at Lagunitas calls this a "pumped-up version of our highly-touted Lagunator."
Note: 2004 edition was 7.7% ABV, 2006 is 6.6%.

Not sure what to say here. Very pale/light color. Strange taste (I’m not one for saisons). Seemed to have a curious bite to it that stood out as it’s main taste. Tasted like there was little alcohol, extremely well masked. I almost thought it was a pilsner minus the wierd smell. Labled as a ’crispy summer ale.’ All in all an ok drink, but surely one for drinkers with a refined taste. Re-Rate: Just realized that this beer is labeled as a ’Uzbeki Raga Ale’ at the OBF in Portland. Is this the same as a saison?
