On tap @ 99 Bottles in Santa Cruz, CA. Great farmhouse saison. A little tart, earthy with a bit of sweetness.

Received as an extra from an awesome trading partner. Thanks Jonathan! A clear light orange in color with a with maybe a fingers worth of tight white head. Nose is traditional saison, strong Belgian yeast character, bready malt, and some faint green apple. A lot of similar themes as the nose, mainly focused on the Belgian yeast and bready malt. There isn’t much in terms tartness. Light mouthfeel, somewhat spritzy carbonation, dry, and a moderate finish. Nice saison, reminds me a lot of Prairie Standard actually. Would drink this regularly if this was in my area.

Growler shared by GT. Pours a hazed pale golden color with a white head. Aroma is disappointing based on their other beers. White pepper, banana, apple, bread, and a hint of lemon zest. Maybe some yeast and orange. Flavor is kind of bland. Bread, lemon zest, white pepper, and banana. Cracker malt, yeast, and apple.

2L growler from belgianthings on BA. Traded heavy for this beast. Pours a low haze golden with buttermilk, thick, large foam. Nose is sweet apple, esters, banana. Some white pepper. Taste is juicy, savory melon, some peach. Chalky palate. Not so great. Vastly disappointing.

On tap at Sante Adairius. Aroma and flavor of sweet orange and lemon, wheat, light Belgian spice, and yeast. Very good mouthfeel and carbonation. One of the better saisons I've had. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh light tasty house beer. Some would say girly but has enough complexity to satisfy you. Spicy orange lemon wheat. Mild hops and faint tartness. Soft palate. Rustic Belgian ale. Nice.

Cloudy yellow. Lots of ripe banana and tropical fruit on nose along with light spice. Taste follows with a slightly tart finish. Terrific domestic saison. Could crush this on a hot summers day.

Ratebeer Gallery event draft pour: Bright amber hue with mixed-bubbled halo. Tropical fruit aroma, Tropical fruits and overripe banana flavors are prominent, with a carmely red fruit contribution mid-palate. Finishes same.
