Tap at Papago. Pale gold pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of wheat, malt, honey and fruit. Flavor is similar with a touch of spice and lemons. Not bad.

Bottle. Light colored pour, quite clear, with a nice poofy topping. The scent is musty, spicy, earthy, yeasty ... quite complex and seductive. To the casual drinker, however, I’m sure most of this is lost. What a great example of why one shouldn’t drink from the bottle. If you did, you’d miss out on the finesse in this one ... well done, Samuels Adameseses. (#4245, 9/9/2011)

Would drink but not buy. Smells of honey and flowers. Quick sweet hit, followed by a light sour note, then a light dry finish. Something seems slightly out of balance.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a big white top. Aroma is very farmhouse, and not the pleasant part. Taste is weak, thin bodied, mostly yeast and a little spice and nothing nice. Thanks to spinrsx for this.

On tap at the HopCat. A decent saison, yellow with a generous head.Little spicy aroma. A little sour, some pepper. I would be happy if the best beer I could find in the city, but nothing too special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of markwise. The 12oz-er pours a brilliant clear gold with weak bright white head. The aroma is sort of fruity with red apples as well as notes of spicy yeast, some herbal qualities and floral to spicy hops. The taste is similar with thin veins of red apple and spicy yeast mixing with herbal notes, floral hops and spicy hops. Into the finish a pleasing note of grainy malts joins in to help create a more interesting and balance experience.

I thought this beer was decent. It was a good representation of its style. Had the citrus finish, the light body and the refreshing drinkability the a good saison has.

Real enjoyable summer beer. Taste is honey, raw corn tortillas and sunshine. Underrated saison.
