COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brother Levonian Saison is a Farm House style beer brewed to celebrate the life of Dave Levonian. Our friend Dave was a husband, father, homebrewer and a very approachable guy. He was basically just one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He passed away in 2008 at was too young of an age. Dave’s passing left a bunch of us looking for ways to celebrate his involvement in the community of brewers in San Diego. The one thing we all knew about Dave was that he loved Saisons...LOVED them. In this bottle, we have recreated one of Dave’s recipes in the hope of honoring the memories he left us. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will go to a college fund that was created for Dave’s daughter. We thank you for supporting his legacy with each bottle.

Bottle. Dark yellow/brown pour with a small white head. Malty aromas. Again, this bad boy is way past its prime. All kinds of malty notes. Shadows of the spices and yeasty notes that’s at have dominated this beer. Average body and mouthfeel.

Bomber from a trade. Had at my Saison tasting (from notes). Pours a cloudy orange with a modest head and lots of floaties. Nose was spicy with some citrus sweetness. Taste was still lively for it’s age, with orange peel and an earthy minerality on the tongue. Finished nicely with a fruity, dry aftertaste and lingering yeast flavors. Glad I got to try this one...

Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, pour out of bottle is hazy orange with white head, aroma has notes of tart fruits with citrus and lemon, some grass, hay, biscuit and grain, some slight toasted malts as well. Taste is sweet grape, pear and peach, some tart lemon and orange, hints of cardboard, grassy earth and yeast, finishing fairly dry.

Bottle @ Scott’s Summer Saison tasting. Thanks so much Scott! Hazy, golden orange appearance with a nice off-white head. Somewhat oxidized, paper, orange citrusy aroma. Bready, orange citrusy, moderately bready citrusy flavor. Past prime but ok.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2011
I’m told this bottle is an older one. Orange with a large amount of intense spices, and light to moderate fruity esters. sweet sugary malts in the nose along with some touches of oxidation. Flavor is oxidized and extremely spice with a semi fruity crisp finish. Finish is dry and mouthfeel is spritzy. Not too bad but would be good fresh. Thanks Jcr!

Damico (2645) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Pours golden orange with a decent white head. Has some very light sweet notes and a bit of decent funk, the saison yeast comes through well. The flavor is dominant saison yeast, a bit sweet and funky. Not complex, smooth on a medium body.

750 ml bottle from hopscotch- thanks, Eric! Original bottling. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a big off-white head. Nice barnyard funk on the aroma along with straw, grass, and some alcohol that sits in the nostrils late. Flavor of barnyard funk, apricots, sugar, sweet malts, earth, and dry grains. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, funky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Some oxidation starting to show. Pairs well with Whole Foods 365 Lemon Poppyseed Scones (thanks, sneagrams3!).
