From a growler. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy with a light mineral note, a hint of apple, and a peppery note. The Taste is dry and earthy with a bit of pepper. The finish is dry and earthy with some light apricot. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A pretty solid American Saison.

Nice citrusy aroma. Flavor is also citrusy, with nice hints of lemon. A it of funk on the finish, which is to be expected given the style. Not bad.

Bottlet at Danís shared with friends. Golden orange appearance with a two-finger, white head and great lacing. Cheese, wax, spice, tropical fruits, pineapple, and straw in the aroma. Taste is mango, armpit, pepper, pineapple, cobwebs, biscuit, and pear with a lightly tart finish. Medium mothfeel with high carbonation. Spicy, sour, funky, bready, and smooth. Really nice saison.

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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
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.
