COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3355) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
4 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a fair amount of banana esters and a distinct dustiness. Fairly fruity. Body is a moderately hazy golden color with a smallish, off-yellow head. Starts spicy, dry, and quite carbonated. Very bubbly--champagne-esque. Becomes fruity with mild yeast dusty esters. Strong carbonation throughout. Fairly drinkable, but it would be more drinkable if the carbonation was toned down. The carbonation hides the flavors and creates a bit of a one-dimensional beer.

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2011
On draft at Craft. Pale yellow looking with lively carbonation. Very refreshing taste with a wheat beer-esque finish. Smells quite herbal, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

Aroma is Poperingse hop and Belgian yeast, touch of swamp. Flavour is mild hop with light malt. Highly drinkable, but nothing special.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 6, 2011
Hazy golden with a large white head. Lightly spiced aroma, yeast, a bit of hops, and light fruits. Sweet fruits, light spices, a bit of wheat, a bit of citrus, and floral. Medium, carbonated body. Pretty fun brew but not an everyday drinker.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a medium thick white head. A great nose full of oranges, pepper, some banana, sage, very complex. The flavor is very nice; sweet light peppery and citrus flavors, lemons, dry, pears, full bodied and lingering sweet dry Belgian yeast. Very nice.
