"An average saison. A little musty. Well balanced grain nd grass, slight spice and hoping and a bot of light fruit. Interesting, but ultimately forgetable."

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
On tap - The beer pours out a burnt amber body, smallish off-white head. Aroma has a very earthy, wood chip-like aroma, some light toffee notes..lightly sweet smelling. Woody and vegetables on the aroma, kinda soapy too. Just okay.

944play (399) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Hazy amber with slowly diminishing off-white foam. Intensely loamy, ivy-leaf aroma with geraniol dominant. Some mild pleasant malt is abraded by a eucalyptine intercessor. Carbonation and apparent minerality make for a rather brusque palate. Interesting but not as compelling as something like Nøgne Ø’s higher-gravity Dugges or indeed Moonlight’s past gruitesque offerings like Working for Tips.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 3, 2013
Golden pour with a white head. Nose is really strange. Some nice sweetness of biscuit and bread, but it’s also quite herbal and has an almost peanut butter aroma. Hints of banana, grass, wood, and vegetables. The flavor is moderately sweet and malty. Peanut butter, banana, grass, chalk, and herbs. Some woodiness, spice, and mild fruit.

illidurit (2284) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
On tap at burger. in Santa Cruz. Pours a golden orange color with a lasting tan head. Aroma is vague plant parts, leaves and wood. Flavor is basically a doughy pale ale base, a little flabby and sweet, with an unwelcome vegetal character throughout. Moonlight really nails it with Reality Czeck and Bombay by Boat, but jeez I can’t keep getting fooled by these compost-aged botanical refuse beers.

joeneugs (5756) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Draft at Beer Revolution. It pours a clear orange color with no head. The aroma is overpowering with juniper berries, wood and pine needles. Super floral and foresty. The flavor is thankfully not as strong. It has some mildly fruity malt flavor in the background supporting the juniper, wood and a bready finish. I didn’t think I was going to like this beer, but it was really well done. My only complaint is that it had kind of a weak body. Otherwise, a very interesting beer and a great take on the style.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 7, 2012
On tap. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Big aromatic woody aroma. Smells like spruce or maybe cedar. Tastes of woody spruce/cedar, malt, and finishing with a peppery spiciness. Interesting.

doublebock (554) - California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
On tap at Jupiter. Amber color with thin white head. Aroma of spruce and peanut butter.Amber flavor with notes of pinewood, orange zest, and leather.

marcus (9138) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
On tap at City Beer. This year’s "Uncle" ale is a farmhouse ale that seems to be brewed in the saison style, but without hops. It pours orange copper with a tiny off-white head and an enticing toffee aroma. There is a spicy light malt flavor with lots of fruit and notes of cedar. Easy to drink.
