NeuroPliny (245) - Calgary, Alberta, - MAR 24, 2013
On tap at lost Abbey. Pours clear yellow with a medium head that fades to fine lace. Light fruit aroma on a background of subtle spice with orange peel coming through in particular. They say it is slightly fruity and that the brettanomyces yeast (aka Brett) gives it some funk and I certainly concur. Meady yet spicy. Awesome American saison.

Alphadelic (2209) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2017
On tap - gorgeous crest of dense white froth on it. The nose is candied fruit, candies to a cotton candy degree. I pick up the us hops in there with the mango. Very soft and smooth. I like it but overall its perhaps a little too sweet.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Hoppy aroma with a funky finish. Taste is a malty funk with a well balanced addition of hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jefcon (1736) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Draft. Lightly sour with pretty yeast esters -- floral, savory herb and hay. A nice weight and a clean finish. Everything is middle of the road, so tart hops come through and the yeast balances them out.

onceblind (8719) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Hazy deep golden with a fuzzy white head. Belgian grainy and fluffy wheaty nose. Brisk gently tart flavor with a touch of tropical juicy guava and a estery grainy hay touch at the end. Lovely bright and fluffy and tropical saison with a fluffy and slightly bready base.
