COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Madrone is an amber saison with a hint of tartness and a big burst of fruity west coast hops (cascade and zythos). Citrus and tropical fruit in the nose this might be the closest to an IPA we’ll get.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Ariel. Cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma with yeast, citrus, flowers, mild spiciness, a hoppy note and a light earthy note. Dry-ish flavor with light sweetness, yeast, fruitiness, flowers and a light bitterish touch, somewhat citric. Medium-bodied with strong carbonation.

Hoppy Belgian lite beer. My notes were light on this one other than it had a blast of orange and was quite zesty Both with fruit and Belgian yeast. Not bad..."

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14 (I’m keeping this a little shorter than my normal rating style to help catch-up my backlog a little faster)
Orange-amber colored beer. This one has a fruity and lightly funky flavor to it. Solid one.

beersighted (121) - - SEP 1, 2014
A full bodied saison with a huge white frothy head. Pours a golden clear, golden color and has distinct Belgian nose of herbal goodness. Banana esters abound, with an ever so citrus and slightly tart, dry finish.

Wombata (468) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle drank out of tulip glass. Aroma: Very floral, citrus (lemon, orange), hay, later it showed light roast and pear. Palate: light body, well-carbonated Flavor: Floral, light dried, tart apricot, apple, malt, straw, light bittering. Comment: Refreshing. Tulip glasses showed it well (whereas a straight glass did not).

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear (at least on the first pour) orange-copper hued body with a large and retentive, rocky white head. Aromas are mostly yeast driven with black pepper, isoamyl acetate, pear notes, spicy with moderate hop citrus, floral, light pine. Very light malt. Flavors are a bit carbonic, mineral, dry, floral, some toasted malty sweetness, light floral hoppy, a bit umami yeasty, peppery phenols. Very highly carbonated, brisk finish. A bit of malt spicy notes. Pretty decent but not as hoppy as I was picturing.
