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.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, - FEB 19, 2010
75cl at Pikkulintu. Hazy light golden, a tad frothy pale head. Nose has belgian yeast, little brettiness, faint Orval style methol hop/brett mix, faint chalk. Flavor has plenty pale malt sweetness, slightly bretty and cellary yeast, little minty hops and sweet strawberry, faint citric acid, feels very under attenuated. Medium bodied, yeasty palate with low carbonation. I’m liking the modest nose, but it’s just not crisp nor refreshing at all, got pretty sickly after a while.

Gold pour, nice white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spice, apricot, figs, and raisins, flavor is yeast, banana, cloves, figs, dates, wheat and spice. Full body with a light wheaty, spicy, sharp finish.

Stuedmaster (295) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
750 ml bottle from Twin Oaks Market. Abv is 8.0%. Pours an attractive orange-gold with a nice head of foam that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is peppery spices, lemon peel, grass, straw, light caramel. bread, nutty yeast, Belgian funk, bubblegum. Has a complex flavor, well balanced with sweet, bitter, and sour elements. Very spicy and tart, maybe a little overhopped, but it works overall. Nice change of pace, would repeat.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Orange and clear appearance with a lingering, sticky white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, hop resin, light peppery spice, pine, earthy notes and light funk. Flavor of medium bitterness and light malt sweetness. Tastes like an IPA pretty much, minimal brett in this one.

Marheb (2757) - 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.
