UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Bottle @ Danís house, courtesy of Steve_0. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a very nice off white head. White pepper, straw, mild grassy, lightly fruity,a touch funky aroma. A bit tangy, tart, a touch funky, light barnyard, lemon, somewhat spicy flavor. Pretty interesting. Update at RR: good brew.

joeneugs (3483) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 19, 2012
On draft at Russian River. It pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is potent with saison yeast spiciness...pepper, clove etc... with some vanilla and orange peel. The flavor is bone dry and super spicy with mild citrus fruit and a little soapy. Hint of tartness near the finish. Light and dry, but a powerhouse with the flavor.

Tap. Pours clear light amber with a small white head and (predictably) great lacing. Aroma is yeast, lemon, clove. Flavor is strong Belgian yeast, citric bitter with a light lemon peel astringence. Not my favorite.

Tap@the brewpub, Santa Rosa, CA, 13/08/12. Outspoken clovey spice, pepper and banana yeastiness on the nose. Drinks soft and peppery with Belgian yeast, banana shrimp notes...something hop (canít decipher notes), bitterness that clings.
