3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow, slightly cloudy, with a little bit of white head. The farmhouse yeast can be very off-putting if this beer is warm. If served quite cold, the aroma is pleasant: grass, hay, and nectarines. Flavor is mildly bitter. Very refreshing. Overall, this is a decent beer, but I was hoping for more.

Can, poured hazy golden i think, light lace and head. Notes of cardamom, clove, lemons, belgian spice, nutmeg, and light hops. Too many spices going on for me. Just ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Wegmans. Pours clear yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates, active carbonation. The aroma is funky coriander, cardamom, tons of spice! The taste is spicy lemon zest, orange citrus, the carbonation hits the tongue fairly hard, and the finish is dry.

Expected this to be a little bit more spicy. A little bland for my tastes.

Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma has lots of spice. Taste is spiced straw, fruit. I think the spice is trying to substitute for the saison character.
