Our newest assistant brewer Matt McDougall’s first specialty recipe at the pub. It’s a classic Saison. Slight hints of citrus with a nice dry pepper backbone. This beer is prone to induce large quantities of daydreams and enlightenment.

Original review date 8/16/2008...on tap at Stone Bistro... Pours a very clean honey color with decent head-looks almost Pilsenerish Faint yeast/malt electricity with slight horse blanket notes-nice but subtle Very crisp orange yeast and honey with slight spice notes too. Finish is extra clean from front to back-mild wood/pine feel Definitely bright and sessionable. Maybe not a brutally profound or complex saision but extremely drinkable and enjoyable

On tap at Stone. Pours with a small, off-white head covering a clear yellow body. Aroma of candy, light spices and fruits. Taste is dry and sicey with apple and pepper. Creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation.

I’d have to say that this is probably my least favorite beers from the VBC line-up. Saison’s can be so hard to make, and I applaud these guys for trying. However, comparitively speaking to their other beers it has a way to go before it catches up. Aroma was a bit spicy, slightly peppery with hints of the coriander they used in brewing. Appearance was a medium/dark orange. Mouthfeel was satisfyingly light, not harsh in any way and nothing offensive like. Flavor was a bit vegetative for me, but I could also detect some white pepper, bitter oranges and grain. A decent attempt and I’m sure they will work out the kinks and get this beer working soon.

Extremely delicate and soft on the palate. Has notes reminiscent of a good Viognier. Floral and fruit forward wth an effervescent mouthfeel. Wonderful session beer that demands to be quaffed.
