bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 13, 2009
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.
