Bottle to pint glass. The pour is hazy yellow with a half finger white head. The aroma is funky Belgian yeast and citrus. The taste is bright citrus and Belgian. A bit funky and barny. The finish is easy and very drinkable. There's good carbonation as well. Decent stuff if a bit underwhelming considering the pedigree of both Sierra Nevada and Russian River.

This was disappointing. Looked nice in the glass, a wonderful gold crowned with an attractive head. But that’s as far as it went. Drinkable, but not satisfying. The hops did nothing but work against the yeast, for me, and ended up with a mildly harsh, slightly metallic edge.

Gold pour, white head. Aroma is spicy yeast, funk,floral notes. Crisp, floral and spicy with barnyardy yeast. Something off about this beer. Not great. Disappointing.

Poured a golden, pale, clear color with five fingers of khaki white rocky head. Lots of streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Uneven, spiderweb foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.38)
Initial thought after the first whiff was a hoppy spicy saison. Got wet foamy hops, hay, grassy notes, sourdough bread, honey, caramel, spicy Belgian cloves, green grapes, yeast and green apple. (Smell - 3.88)
Tasted pretty close to the nose. Got grassy hops, hay, sourdough bread, cereal (Corn Pops or Kix), cloves, Belgian spices (not as potent as smell), cornbread, green grapes, green apple, light Citra hops, caramel and honey. (Taste - 3.88)
Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Long, spicy Belgian finish. (Feel - 3.88)
I really liked this beer. Spicy saison is what I keep coming up with. Good beer for the style. (Overall - 3.88)
