ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Draft at Les Caves, Corvallis. Pours a clear yet dark golden amber, lots of off white head. Slight coriander, not that much. Body lively, space comes through in finish. Nice but far from Commons’ best.

neepsntatties (1763) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at The Commons. Colour...deep golden yellow with a thick white head. Nose...fruity and spicy with peach compote and apricot fruit leather. Palate...lightly tangy and delicately frothy with lemon curd and lemon pulp and hit of classic Gatorade. The mid palate is dry and still citrusy, as is the finish, though the finish has hints of dry earth.

vyvvy (5863) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2014
On tap at The Commons - Pours dull orange with some haze and a small off-white head. The aroma has funky saison earthiness, coriander, mild toast and rusticness. It has a medium / light body and fairly soft carbonation. The flavor begins with huskiness, earth, coriander, mild hoppiness and light toast. The finish has a mineral aspect as well as a touch more hops. Really nice.

translucent gold, thin white cap with ring, dank grass and pine nose, light dough. Light coin and dough at front, grassy orange hints mid before a chalky finish bring a lot of grain and moderate esters, sweet bubblegum winning above others.
