Theydon_Bois (14964) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2016
Keg at Toronado, SF, 02/02/16. Pale golden blond with a decent off white covering. Nose is mellow citric fruits, straw, grain, lemon rind, light yeast. Taste comprises lemon rind, yeast esters, damp hay, light funk, not too complex. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a mild tarte rinse. Decent enough saison.

Draft at Toronado. Nose is a lightly pissy and catty funkiness. Very clear pale yellow. Taste is light hay, straw and lemon with a bit of acidity. Really quenching and a fairly sour balance.

reggiedunlop (3581) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Pours a very slightly hazy pale yellow...medium white head...nice heavy lacing. Aroma has a touch of sweet lemon and mild grass. Flavor has light grassy and spice notes...mild lemon and grain. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is earthy and dry...like tea with lemon.

bartzluke (483) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2015
3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian River’s “everything on tap” sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again? Too thin, not enough flavor, a little dull. Nose isn’t too pleasant.
