4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cervesa de color clar, amb bona presència d’escuma. En aroma és molt citric pels llupols però està mesclat amb els aromes a forn de pa del llevat. MOLT BONA!
Cerveza de color claro, con buena presencia de espuma. En aroma es muy cítrico por los lúpulos pero está mezclado con los aroma a horno de pan de la levadura. MUY BUENA!

Draft at the Stillwater event at Dig Beer Bar. Mild peach and tangy apples, some funk. Hazy light straw color. Light tangy fruit mix / mid has little spikes of roughness and some light hopping emerges / fades slowly into nips of bittering. Smooth. Very mild and pleasant.

Bottle at the Stillwater at Dig Bar. These saisons should really hit the spot this summer. This pours a crystal clear gold with a nice head of foam. Probably clearer than either the Classique or Why Can’t IBU. It has more of a fruity Belgian blonde aroma while the taste is fruity, zesty with tons of spicy estery goodness. Really nice, my favorite of the night.
He truly has a saison to suit every taste.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/4/2013. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, apple, black pepper, clove, straw, grass, herbal, floral, light bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester, hops, and light-moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, apple, black pepper, clove, straw, grass, herbal, floral, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, apple, black pepper, clove, straw, grass, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester, hops, and moderate malt flavors; with a great yeast/hop flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, hops, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours blond with very high frothy white head. Lots of bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, grain, saison yeast. Taste is of saison yeast, citrus, malt, sugar, fruits, slight alcohol. Palate: Quite heavy carbonation. Light-medium body (hard to say with all that carbonation). Good balance. Overall: Nice yeast action. Pretty nice beer. Only flaw is the heavy carbonation. Don’t think it’s supposed to be like this. Very belgian.

bottle. Slightly hazy golden with small head. It’s a fine saison, but it does hit me as a bit dull on the palate. There’s a nice funky yeastiness, but just a hint of some tartness would really help this be outstanding.
