On tap @ Torpedo Room. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aromas of pear, apple, and banana. Nice sugar, malt, and fruit sweetness. Tons of yeast, esters, and phenols. Light pepper on the finish. Flavor is sweet apple, banana, and pear. A touch of booze, pepper, and sugar. Some bread, yeast, and grass, too. Just a hint if white grape. Not bad.

now here i thought SN went traditional. no bigger hop flavor just some hop (and not in sierra nevada tradition), a nice golden color with banana and spice type flavors transitioning to a wine like dryness near the end for a busy brew. yeast has itís own dimension. what one can expect from one of the very best brewers in the world. gentle salty warmness.

Some smooth banana in the aroma. Could be cloudier. A very fruity body of banana and orange but also quite hoppy for a saison. I really quite like this.

It has a nice spicy, herbal aroma. It pours a golden orange color. The taste is little sweet with some very subtle yeasty funk in it. It was more malty than Iíve come to expect out of the style but a very easy drinking and affordable beer.

Great for saison drinkers at a much cheaper price than usual saison. Strong yeast flavors and aroma with a good golden color.
