3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden-blonde with a quick soft white head. Nose is fairly strong with lots of orange, coriander, and a touch of tartness. Flavor is a bit less potent and definitely a lot less sweet, with the more tart and bitter aspects of the ale coming out harder. Backside is a little too bitter for the style. Not overall bad, but I’ve definitely had better saisons.

Very grassy and lemony. Hides the alcohol very well for a light style at 6.2%.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A-murky wicker yellow with good head and mediocre lacing.
S-lots of cloves and some orange up front like expected in saisons. Some vinegar, banana, mild soap and grapefruit thereafter. Cinnamon and lemon grass or hay as well. Slight egg funk.
M-light bodied and very effervescent. Good carbonation and slightly sticky.
T-lots of lemon and citric acid with some barnyard during tangy opening. Cloves and varied autumnal spices. A little medicinal starting in the middle all the way to a long dry and bitter end.
O-simple and to the point.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating no 125 for this beer, I’ve had the pleasure of working through a fresh sixer of cans. Most noticeable in the nose is the heavy cardamom, but there are other lighter spicy and floral notes as well, over a yeasty golden ale base. Pours lemon yellow with a creamy bright white head. Taste also strongest on cardamom, medium bitterness and low sweetness undercut by the herbal/weedy overtones and mild astringency, love the aggressive spiciness and toned-down mouthfeel (not overly aggressive carbonation, more of a medium body). Some lemony citrus and cream notes, smooth and mildly yeasty finish. Alcohol not a big factor in the flavor. Has good repeatability, really enjoy it as a daily saison.

aroma leaves a peppery and spicy impression with a little funky yeast as well...cloudy yellow with half inch white pillowy head leaves some lacing not too much...taste..would be perfect on a 90 degree evening if we ever get another one around here..lemon cough drop,pepper,a hint of mint..light bodied and like seltzer water on the palate..overall..i like saisons especially as hot weather beers so im a bit partial but this tastes good to me
