4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 bottle purchased at BevMo in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Pours a cloudy medium golden classic Saison color with a huge, rocky 3-finger head. As the head collapses, it leaves very rich and thick Brussels lace on the side of the tulip shaped glass... great sign! AROMA / BOUQUET: Classic Saison fruitiness, deep grassiness, hay, granny smith green apple with some chardonnay. TASTE: Oh yes... it’s that classic hoppy, yet tart Saison taste, citrus; lemony, grapefruit, nice barnyard funkiness to it. MOUTHFEEL / PALATE: This Saison is a good assault on the olfactory senses- lovely tartness, the label is a perfect picture of what the flavor evokes: fresh herbal grassy dryness, yet not too dry.. and refreshing. OVERALL: A wonderful ale to share with friends, AND your loved one... I had a vision of working out in the hot sun all day, knowing that this was waiting for me in my refrigerator to enjoy at the end of the day... GREAT SAISON!

"hazy golden color with a cloudy white head. aroma is nice...a little barnyard, citrus & yeast. prickly feel that softens in the back...nice for the style. makes me gassy, though. flavor is intense for such a "light" beer. fruity with a hint of lemon and spices, a touch of funk, and some hops in the back with a dry yeasty finish. i’d go back for more if this were in 4 or 6 packs...probably won’t get a 750 too often, though."

Flaska från craftbeer. Ytterligare en fin saison från Lost Abbey. Stor kropp för stilen men annars relativt stiltypisk. Tydlig jästkaraktär, lätt jordig, örter, mynta, apelsinskal, ingefära och lite pepprig. Riktigt fin.

Horse blanket, tangerine, triple sec, banana, salt, pine, and pepper. Pours a translucent yellowish amber with a HUGE frothy white head that reduces fairly quickly. Taste is lemon, biscuit, wheat, banana, and yeast. This is a good one.

Draft at Trinity. Pours gold with a thick white head. Glad to see LA beers are just as overcarbed on draft. Aroma is spice, funk, grass, must. Taste is dry, tart, sweet, musty, funk. Hints of bubblegum. Pretty complex, but easy drinking. Finishes dry and earthy.

12oz pour on tap at first draft in Chicago. Gold with big white head. Aroma is subtle. Very effervescent. Mild flavor. Some sweet some spice. Something bitter, like ginger. spicy body with that ginger bitterness. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Good beer but wanted more flavor.
