COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Had at St Stevens green with Katie. Pours cloudy gold with a off white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, and citrus. Flavor is similar. Well balanced. It has a sweet fruit flavor but also a little bit of funk as well. Solid Saison though.

Thanks to kaiser81 for sending me this bottle. 2009 vintage. The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is brett with some citrus. I also get some tartness. The flavor is a nice mix of citrus, spices, Belgian yeast and some brett characteristics. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Papago on 5-6-10. Pours cloudy gold with a thick one finger stark white head. The nose is light funky yeast, citrus zest and spice. The taste is funk, orange peel, light spice and some hops in the finish. Light prickly mouthfeel. Decent Saison.
