COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve been hard at work on a recipe that includes – you guessed it – seven different grains. Let’s see if I can name them all: barley, wheat, rice, oats, corn, rye and...spelt. Yep, I think that’s it. The result is a perfect summer beer. It’s about 5% ABV and displays a nice fruity yeast character that finishes dry and slightly hoppy. It’s seven kinds of wonderful!

Tap at OBF, straw with a thick fluffy white head, aroma is esters and a little hop. All I can taste at first is sulfur then it fades out and tastes like a light saison. Probably needs some more bulk aging to take the sulfur edge off.

Tap @ OBF... Pale, straw/yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat malts, spiced peppercorns. Flavors of light hops, citrus, wheat malts, eggy, cloves and a refreshing finish.

Sampled on tap at the Brewery (or is it the Bruery?) on 7/9/2010. This saison pours an orange gold color from the tap. Medium to large sized white foamy head. The aroma is grainy, spicy, fruity and sweet. A medium to full bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, cereal, spicy and grainy. The hops are spicy and floral. Nice carbonation. Crisp and clean. Nice balance. Lots of interesting grain and spice flavors. Slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Yellow blond with decent thinness of head. Twangy nose with a hint of lemon verbena, coriander, and uric acid. Interest, complex grain body. Spelt takes the forefront. Twangy flavors with a somewhat cereal quality and tannic sour finish.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Tap at the Bruery. Rating #18. Darker yellow pour with a white head. Big grain aroma, yeasty and pretty potent. Flavor was pretty similar, more yeast and more grains, but that’s to be expected, nice saison, but not as good as the other two they brew. (1288)

On tap at the Bruery. Pours with a small white head over a hazy golden body. Aroma is grassy, tropical fruit, herbal, mango. Good hops, but according to Tyler, it is just whirlpool and bittering. Taste is fruity, dry, grainy and clean. Everything you could want from a non-farmyard-ey saison. Lively and dry bubbles. Very nice.

Draft @ Brouwer’s; light gold with faint haze and pretty white head leaving scattered lacing behind; light fruit, yeast, lemons with bone dry finish; thin body with some faint yeasty complexity; crisp, clean and super drinkable; lemons with mild white pepper; pears, lemons peels and slightly grainy; not exactly in my wheelhouse as far as saisons go, but pretty damn good overall; simple, clean and tasty

Tap at Maxs for Stillwater promo event. Pours a light pale golden with a slight head- some lace. Aroma is citrusy lemon zest, earthy light pepper and cardamon with a light grassy cracker backbone. Flavor is a bit 1-dimensional and doesn’t really come through like I hoped all the grain kind of flatten the beer out a bit instead of making it lively- some spic, coriander, clove, cardamon, yeasty doughy, with lots of plain grainy grittiness, and a slight lemon citrus finish with slight tartness- no real umph though and finish is a bit bland. Ok.

I had this on tap at the Bruery. This saison had some spiciness, muted fruits and finished dryly.

Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a white ring of foam. The body was bright and clear. Aroma: Tripel yeast. Taste: Spicy yeast and pale dry malt. Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy. Overall: This wasn’t complex enough for something called Seven Grain, and wasn’t that exciting.
