On tap at Toronado. This golden ale poured with a short white head and a pleasant toasty aroma. There is a thin malt flavor and some barely discernable spices. The body is quite watery making this a mediocre example of a saison.

Draft at Toronado. Orangish yellow colored. I was told it was a saison. Aroma is attractive with floral and spicy notes. Medium bodied, fairly dry. Thereís definitely something fun in this one.

Nothing about this beer really did much for me. It did carry a very nice floral nose, some rose petals, with some sweet malts and a touch spicy. All very soft and subdued. Flavors had some light, soft maltiness about it, a strong presence of flowers with just a soft herbal quality to it. Everything about this beer was soft and perhaps thatís what the goal was. It left just a whisper of flavor behind.

brewandbbq (269) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Pours clear gold, with a three-inch head of dense white. Retention is average, leaving behind plenty of smeared lacework and a partial skim-coat on the surface. Aromatics are floral, perfumy, and lightly sweet and spicy. Rose petals with honey and white peppercorns. Fresh dew in a flower garden with earthy cedar underfoot. Light bodied, creamy and slightly crisp. A bit tacky and clingy. Very light malt and crisp wheat lead off the pallet, along with a light spicy note and some residual honey. A slight bitterness takes the edge of the light residuals. Finishes with rounded honey notes, a hint of lemon, and rosewater. A very delicate brew, and the pallet doesnít really deliver what the nose promises. Refreshing and quenching. I hope to try the small amount that made it into barrels someday.

Pours an attractive bright orange with decent white head. Spicy and fruity nose. Similar flavor with a bit more fruit sweetness that lingers. Very delicate on the palate. Thanks to davecooks for this one.

illidurit (2115) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Light gold color with a watery white head that leaves some scattered lacing. Aroma is juicy and sweet. Obviously very floral, but with a spicy character as well. Flavor is light and refreshing, with a hibiscus type of flower petal character and a peppery dry finish. Very easy to drink.

DYCSoccer17 (3290) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 1, 2008
4 ounce sample on tap at the Raley Field Brewfest. Aroma has a nice mix of floral, spicy, peppery, and citrus notes. Mildly hazy orange body with a small, off-white head. Spicy, coriander wheat flavors are present to start. A little acidic in the middle. Finishes with lemon, pepper, and more coriander.

joet (2129) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Something like Troublette? But less sweet, no biscuit flavors, not much in terms of aroma. Really not a lot here. Maybe a palate cleanser or or acidic with-food beer.Unspectacular.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2008
On tap at the pub. Yellow haze with small head. Nose of honey with some grass and flowers. Flavor is soft herbs with some honey malt sweetness. Dry peppery finish. Nice.

jlizard (8) - Richmond, California, USA - MAY 28, 2008 does not count
Nice and light, very drinkable - low carbonations, nice yeast flavor. Despite itís smooth finish I found a great layered complexity to the flavors. Highly recommended with a meal or on a hot day!
