illidurit (2355) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours an opaque apricot color with a fine white head. Aroma is pale malty with a strange rye-ish character, I guess that’s what spelt is like. Some banana pith on the nose as well, a touch of fruit salad. Flavor is lovely soft fruits -- peaches, bananas -- with a glorious malt balance and a smooth dry finish. Very much like Odonata Saison (RIP) but I’m inclined to say this is better.

Zymurgeist2 (2385) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
On draught at the brewery. Moderate (balanced) spice on the nose with lemon and cracker. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with full true white head of small bubbles that lingers and leaves great lacing. Strong spice and lemon continue in flavor with a chewy yeast and quick semi-dry finish. Sweet grain lingers long on he lips. Outstanding!

Sampled this a bunch of times now, this review from a growler. Pours a vibrant orange color with a fine-bubbled, constantly replenishing white head; really nice looking pour. Aroma shows white pepper at the front of things with a dryish presentation that doesn’t exclude notes of caramelized bananas and honey; everything right where it should be (WLP568?). Lively, fine bubbles in a medium-bodied presentation; mouthwatering and precise on the tongue. A bit of white pepper and clove hit the front of the tongue first, followed by those honeyed notes that, while not overtly sweet, serve to round out the mouthfeel and keep this from being too lean. Layered, luscious saison right here. Drying finish of white pepper, clove + emergent breadiness and toast. These folks are brewing some great stuff.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JUL 25, 2013
On tap at Sante Adairius. Aroma and flavor of sweet orange and lemon, wheat, light Belgian spice, and yeast. Very good mouthfeel and carbonation. One of the better saisons I've had. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ 99 Bottles in Santa Cruz, CA. Great farmhouse saison. A little tart, earthy with a bit of sweetness.

Damico (3150) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours clearer straw lemon in color with a smaller beige head. Aroma brings sweet springy floral notes so pleasant. Flavor brings the unique malt of spelt not too sweet, a little bit of oats going on and settling easy on the palate.

if this is there base saison (as it was advertised) it’s easy to see why they have so many great saison/sour beers available at any given time. Bright and a little peppery, with a distinct gummy Belgian yeast. Delicious!
