3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ San Diego Brewing: poured with a beautiful topping of head with a color hard to tell due to the dim lights at the bar. The aroma was spiced lovely, however, the flavor was only moderately spiced and seemed to run a little thin and watered down, but was still a clean and crisp drink.

not nearly as good as i was hoping. like apple juice, seriously, thats the first and only thing i could think of when i drank it, pure apple juice. thin white head that was gone in a flash, crystal clear amber color, aroma is of apples and some yeast. not going to make that mistake again, should be better coming from a brewer that usually makes some great beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at SN tasting at Olives.
Poured dark clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate spice, fruity and floral aroma. Medium to full body with sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.
This beer goes well with the calamari app.

A blonde saison with a thick white head. An organic smelling ale with Brett, raspberries, epsom salts...wow! In mouth, a nice light saison with orange peels, smooth and fresh, coriander notes. Quite nice! On tap at Falling Rock Tap room, 24 Jan. 2009.

(11/18/08) Draught at The Brickskeller in Washington DC. Hazy golden color with a medium stable white head. Aroma has some funky , quite infected-like, qualities (not good but no so bad either) and some spiciness. Sourish flavor, a bit bretty with some sweet malt, fruits and spicy notes. Medium-bodied. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Falling Rock, apparently Chris Black was a part of brewing this beer. Nice orange color served in a pint glass(?). It smells like vinegar and weirdness. The taste is peppery, candy, really makes me think about what I am tasting. Very easy to drink. good beer but what else can you expect from Sierra Nevada.
Serving type: on-tap
