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.

Bottle. The pour was a hazy yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head that lasted a little while, receding to a large puddle and collar of residue, which had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of light grain and cereal malts, herbal hops and a funky Brett yeast with notes of citrus (orange and lemon), and a hint of spice (coriander and clove). The taste was a little sweet and a tad sour with a hint of citrus at first and then became rather hoppy with a slight bitter lemon peel presence and a mild peppery spice ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a hoppy slightly sour peppery taste left to settle on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body with a smooth dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall a refreshingly different Saison, with a nice sour spicy taste that had an outstanding blending with the hops...

10/16/2014. On tap at the brewery. Light brown with a tan head. Malty, caramel, yeasty and fruity. All in near perfect harmony. Light tartness with hints of oak. So complex and enjoyable.

Väldigt bra. Viss syrlighet och citrus men framför allt riktigt bra balans i smaken och kroppen. Högt högt vitt skum.

Cunningham (4775) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Holy Madonna. This beer is just in perfect balance with my flavoring. Brought me into nirvana and perfect harmony. Could not ask for more from a Saison. Lovely cloudy yellow color. Smooth perfect citric, yeast, mild spicy and fruity. The only problem is. Where do I get another one….

- Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"pours golden with a tight white head. aroma is ok...a little barnyard, Belgian yeast, light fruits and light hops. the flavor and feel, which started out average or just above, really grew on me as i drank and the bitter hops blended quite nicely with the relatively tame but flavorful Belgian clove, tart fruit and funky aspects of the beer. not one i’ll likely go back to soon, but not bad either."

Torrefacto (617) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2014
Color cobrizo turbio con espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de fruta amarilla, pan y levadura, ligero toque cítrico. Cuerpo medio, afrutada y dulce de inicio, con un toque ácido que va creciendo. El final es seco. Execelente.

Vignale (2149) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
Flaska från SB. en söt fruktig stor saison. Saisonjäst, persikor, gula hallon, örtig, frisk lätt touch av brett. Det örtiga, blommiga och fruktiga gifter sig riktigt bra.
