On tap at the source. Near perfect appearance for a saison, bright yellow/orange, massive 2" white head on the top, good lacing and retention. Aroma was pungent yeast, saison is supposed to be that way, and this was strong even for a pungent saison yeast.
Nice crisp feel to the beer, the taste is still dominated by the yeast, it isn't phenolic or whatnot, but it hits hard. Alcohol is nicely hidden in this one. Mild spice note, some coriander and pepper if you look for it. Pretty clean and traditional. I'm not huge for saisons, but I do like some Fantome, North Coast and now Sierra Nevada.

Growler purchased from the brewery two days ago. Tag says 8%ABV, 18 IBU.
A: Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with about two fingers of short-lived white head that quickly faded into a lasting film and collar. Patchy chunky lacework was left down the glass.
S: Sweet, fruity, spicy and full of yeast with notes of golden fruits, sweet stone fruits, peppery yeast, and coriander. Fruit and yeast forward.
T: Follows the nose with tons of fruits mixed with a decent dose of peppery spices and crackery yeast. Grain base is crisp but almost completely masked by the golden fruit. Golden delicious apples, golden pears, apricots and white grapes are noticeable. Finish is lightly bitter with just a touch of vanilla and wood, and the aftertaste is sweet and vinous.
M: Soft and refreshing carbonation, full body with a smooth and sweet mouthfeel.
O: A fruit forward saison with a nice white wine vinous quality to it. Spicy and sweet, I’d drink this again.

On tap for the 4th Anniversary event at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spices, and some fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with a nice fruity flavor. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors that make it refreshing and easy to drink.
