Crushed with Jakebra at the Colorado Springs Saison Festival. Cool brew. What you’d expect from a brown/saison combo. Roasty but funky, smooth but full-bodied, dry but hoppy. Really good.

pours the darkest i’ve seen a saison from the tap at papago... hazy brown with a coppery hue. it is capped by a creamy tannish head which leaves drippy rings of lacing behind. the nose is saison-ish just toned down a bit... bready yeast, mustiness, toasted grain and a hint of tartness... like lemon. the taste is immediately identifiable as yeast leavened banana bread... banana, earthy yeastiness, grainy sweetness and grass with a watered down lemony tart finish. light to medium bodied with a fairly dry palate which keeps it refreshing. 6/4.5/6/3/13/3.25

alexanderj (3317) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2009
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Poured a brownish color with tan head. Aroma of fruit, brown malt, yeast and must. Aroma was much of the same. Not much of a saison for me, but it had some nice taste. Not much funk or too much yeastiness. Good stuff though.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2009
On tap at Papago. Pours a nice brown with a tan head. Aroma is spices, malt, hops, yeast. Flavor is spices, a bit saison like, malts that are a bit off for the style. Interesting take on the style but it really doesnt work for me.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 17, 2009
On tap at Sacramento Brewing. This brown ale poured with a rich tan head and a bread aroma. It sure tastes like a saison, it just doesn’t look like one. There are some banana esters and spices over a roasted malt base, but the finish is long and chalky like a brown ale.

Draft at Sacramento Brewing. Very dark, but translucent, brown color. Decent little beige head. Rather malty, slightly funky, aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Seems to have a touch of vanilla, mild Brett, and rather spicey hop. Not so funky as many Euro saisons, but the style is recognizable. The color and malt are a bit shocking. Finishes less than dry, still astringent, and very pleasing.
