Taste is sweet lemon zest/marigold hops with some bite, 2nd light malt, yeast. West coast Saison. Sammy (12195) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle at Cole’s, Mike’s private collection. Great lace on light body. The aromas are a delightful, funky and fresh. More complex as I drink it, and that has to be done sip by sip. The herbs lead to a soup of tastes, still lemony and bitter, with white paper and the rosmary and sage. Above average mouthfeel and approachable by averge

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2016 i thought this would be a cool beer given these are three of the top american brewers by most rational standards, but i did not expect this. huge aroma of spices and grassy hops. sage and rosemary dominate with the others playing a minor role. more a spiced ale than a saison, really, but damn if it ain’t awesome. this will be the summer staple if i can find some more. Wow!"
