Frank (2929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Orange hazy. Nice head of medium bubbles which dissipates rather quickly. Fresh, fruity nose w/ a bunch of a lavender baby powder character. Light to medium bodied. Lightly tart and crisp w/ just a hair to much bitterness (which is really not distracting). Vigorous carbonation. If you like hoppy saisons, this is a good one.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mildly spiced hops and fruit. Light body with flavors of hops, bready malt, sweet fruit and yeast. The finish is sweet spices and fruit with a yeast aftertaste. Decent Saison overall.

On tap at their brewpub. This was a nicely hopped-up saison, with herbals and peppery spice standing out. The pour was too close to the top of the glass, leaving nothing more than a thin layer of wispy white head. The body was fairly translucent and burnt orange in color in the darker lighting. A full, hazy cloud of an aroma here, with some decent notes. Bananas, peppery spice, lots of herb, some caramel, and nutty cereal grains. The mouthfeel was peppery and bitter. This bitterness made this saison unique for sure. Mixed fruity notes up front, and peppery citrus. More of a herbal and light floral finish. Really not too bad here. Good profile, buts things didn’t quite come together for me in all the right ways.

Bottle. Foamy slightly off-white head, lightly hazy marigold. Yeasty, hay, spice, some grass and banana and citrus in the aroma. Lightly spicy, some banana, slightly sweet breadiness, dryish dusty finish with some sliht pear in the flavor. Lighter to medium body.

A hazed blonde saison with a thin white head. In aroma, a grassy fruity malt with light cloves, orange pulp. In mouth, a smooth fruity saison with orange peels, coriander, alcohol warmth, nice.

Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear medium amber with a round white head. The aroma is yeast and citrus fruit. The flavour is medium sour with a surprisingly malty caramel acid citrus palate. A somewhat different saison!
