On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours a clear golden. Nose is faintly spicy with mild citrus notes. Flavor is similar. No flaws and a good saison profile, but needed something extra to take it to the next level.

Draft at Blackback. Interesting beer thats a bit to clean for my tastes in saisons. The Citra adds a nice fresh citrus/dankness to the beer but the base saison is a little watery and bland. Still nice and drinkable.

On tap at American Flatbread. Aroma is lightly fruity (banana maybe?). Pale golden color with clear body and white head. Taste was light bitter and medium sweet. Light body with a dry finish. Overall, Iíve had a few saisons that I didnít like before, but this one was definitely very drinkable. A great, mild saison.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Wheaty, floral, some farmhouse character and light brett. Kind of lactic, kind of sweetish, with bitter noble hops flavor and some spritzy cheap grapefruit juice. Not especially exciting.

A golden ale with a thin white head. A light banana and clove aroma. In mouth, a rather light yet pleasing saison, with bananas, cloves and light berries. Light bodied. On tap at brewpub Oct. 10 2008.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden beer. Aroma of bubble gum, light clove and a nice crisp Belgian malt base. Very similar to the tripel, but a bit more minty and a more prominent spicy hoppiness. Lean and crisp with a bit of fruitiness. Some cherry and a light berryish character. Crisp and dry on the finish. Lovely.

Draft at the brewpub. Very mild, almost non-existent aroma. Pale yellow body, small white head. Surprisingly flavorful, given the aroma. Spicy and flowery, with a slightly bitter finish.

Thanks to Paul for bringing the growler! The beer is a perfect cloudy gold with a thick, strong, amazing white head. The aroma is beautifully spicy with strong pepper, clove, and coriander notes. Lots of funk in the nose as well, with some great grain and bread notes. The taste is also quite spicy but refined and balanced. There is a certain sweetness in the middle that is fantastic, and then it finishes nice and dry. The farmhouse is pleasant and strong but nicely balanced. Another killer beer.
