COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special summer Saison release that was fermented with an addition of Muscat grape juice we received from a local winery. DuPont Saison yeast strain was used. The beer won a first place Gold at the 2008 Amador County Fair. The beer is also known as Saison #2.

From the tank. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of spices, yeast, and peaches. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast and citrus, leading to a dry finish.

On tap. Slightly hazy golden with a rough off-white head. Very fresh and fruity nose. Light body, sweetish fruit with a soft almost candy-like edge. Finishes dry with a light whiff of yeast. Smooth and pleasant. 130709

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 5, 2009
(10/29/08) Draught at the brewery in Stockton (thanks a lot Steve and Mike!). Hazy deep orange color with a white head. Aroma of citrus, nice fresh fruits and notes of hops and spice. Sweetish flavor with some malt, some subtle muscat grapes, some tropical fruit notes, earthy hints and a rather dry finish with mild spiciness. Medium-bodied. Nice and balanced.

From a Growler. Deep orange with a decent head. Aromas of sweet malt and some bright fruits. Flavors were similar with touches of sweet bread and more fruit. Good stuff. I love Valley Brew.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Draft, courtesy of KrausenJockey. Thanks!! Pours a slightly hazy, honey-orange color; white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Solid amounts of honey, malty sweetness, and white grapes in the aroma; sweet and vinous. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy honey, white wine (very mild tartness) and intricate malty sweetness and yeast; really nice, restrained sweetness and wine grape character. Very drinkable stuff. Lengthy finish: toasty malts, honey, and wet malt goodness.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2008
On tap at Stone. Bright and light in color. Very light head. The aroma is of spices. The flavor was wide in the mouth. It filled it but not full tasting. Laterally on the tongue. Complex and sharp with the spice flavor. Licorice.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
On-tap at Stone. Pors light amber with a moderate, fizzy white head, specks of lace. Smells like grapes with some light wheaty malts and slight yeast. Tastes much more balanced than it smells. Sweet grapes with a pretty complex malt profile, cereal and wheaty, dry and crisp. Pretty nice, hard to drink a pint though. Medium body, fizzy carbonation.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Huge thanks to Brett and especially Steve. Generous beyond words. 22 oz handbottle. Poured a light amber with a small head. Aroma was light grape and a hint of yeast. Flavor was more sweet grape, yeast, a hint of dryness throughout, a very airy grain character with a super smooth and soft finish. Really easy drinking. Would be a great summer beer.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2008
On tap @ Valley Brewings pub poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of straw, light grape, light spice and a hint of carmel. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of grapes, straw, spice and light carmel with a smooth lightly dry lightly fruity finish.
