3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle gifted from drabmuh. Thanks Matt! A new beer from one of my favorite breweries. Very exciting.
The beer is mostly clear, with only a mild haze, and appears a light yellow color. The head is insubstantial, measuring less than a quarter inch, even after agitation. Minimal lacing.
I like the aroma. Bready and malty. Smells like a lager. Nice sourdough bread scents.
Thirst quenching, refreshing, easy to drink. Lots of flavor in a low alcohol, sessionable beer. Malty, with only a subtle sweetness that sneaks in, adding s little something to the bready, lager flavors.
Thin body, but not too. Goes down easy. No trace of alcohol.
Overall, I would like a keg of this at my house next summer.

Cloudy blond color, small head. Light aroma, some malt. Dryish mouthfeel, dry malt flavor, some spices from the yeast, very light citrusy flavor too; correct bitterness.
Balanced Saison, good.

500 ml bottle poured a hazy gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of bread, yeast, citrus and light floral notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, lemon zest and a hint of earthiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

I did NOT realize this was a saison while drinking. I considered this more of a pale ale. Just a slight yeasty/bready component otherwise it was light, drinkable, with decent hop character.

On tap at the brewpub. A good dry hoppy beer. Light orange coloured and very lacey. Lightly carbonated. A hoppy lemony treat.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Acquired in a So-Cal trade. Bottled 8/30/12 (9ish days ago). Enjoyed in a tulip at fridge temperature.
A - Nice fluffy 1 finger off white head. Fades to nothing after a minute or so. Sort of a cloudy tangerine color.
S - Very yeasty breadiness on the nose with light Simcoe and some piney notes. Some degree of citrus.
T - Mild bitterness up front followed by a muted light hopped Simcoe and Amarillo hops. Sort of a bready yeasty taste with honey and orange peels at the finish.
M - Light body, heavy carbonation.
O - This is a drinkable beer. For an equal effort, I can get Pliny so I’ll stick to that.

Pours golden from draft with sticky white head. Boring Carmel backbone. Wouldn't recommend this but it isn't my style either

Golden pour with a off-white head.Nose is Citrus and Yeasty, Highly carbonated and sweeter fruity front. Slightly sour towards the back and a little peppery.
Normally this would be a hit for my tastes but for some reason this one didn’t really do it for me.
