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.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a golden color with a bit of head. Well hopped saison, but not overpowering. Crisp and refreshing.

Marheb (4482) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 10, 2015
(En fût à la brasserie): Un robuste biscuit miellé et herbacé qui laisse une mince trainée de saveurs facilement oubliables.

Very crisp and tasty. A hint of warming alcohol as well. Overall, I think this is a wonderful Saison that I would be happy to drink again.

Low on taste and flavour. Some balanced, bitter, sweet and sourness. Mostly sweet. Medium body. A bit sticky. Pineapple, fruit, yeast, some sugar and candi sugar flavour. Warming, peppery ending. Best before may 2015 - maybe it would’ve been better a bit more fresh.

EithCubes (5458) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Corked and caged 25.4oz, VINTAGE 2012. Nose is fruity and funky Brett, spicy and bright Saison yeast, touch of pepper, green grape skins, light acetic [though only in the nose]. Clear golden very effervescent, dense/tight Orvallish white head. Taste dry and very Brett-forward, probably on equal footing with the saison. Golden malt, very crisp fullish body, pepper, a touch rubbery but that’s only for a few milliseconds. Smooth wooden/cork character (though not ’corked’). Gently warming as if 8-9% abv, light-medium bitterness with a lingering fullness of hops. Still very vibrant and strong in flavor, great against food.
