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.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2012
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...

A very nice California-twist on the saison. Some fruity sweetness pushes forward in the flavors.

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.

ajnepple (2901) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2015
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 (2785) - 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.
