3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow, with a thin white head, and a buzzy gingery aroma, which I guess must be cardamom. Taste is the same with a peculiar pear ester that fades into a very herbal bitterness. $2/12oz

Can into a glass. Pours a pale yellow with a fluffy white head. Not much on the nose. Light mouthfeel. Honestly, not that great. Not a whole lot of flavor or complexity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at Crows Feet Commons. Pour is clear lemon peel with a frothy white head and good lacing. Huge herbs - lavender, cardamom and basil - light straw, grass, and biscuit notes. Taste is biscuit, herbaceous, straw, grass, lemons, heavy lavender, vanilla, white pepper with a slightly sweet and spicy finish. Light body with effervescent carbonation. Crushable saison.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can pours light, clear yellow with small head. Yeast and spice in the aroma. Tastes like a spiced version of the classic Belgian farmhouse ale. This is earthy, clean and refreshing. This should be a summer seasonal. Great Saison!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can to shaker. Pours hazy yellow, big head, some lacing. Retains a thin head throughout. Aroma of nectarines, lemon, cardamom. Taste is sweet with sourness from the yeast. Light body, high carbonation, slightly creamy. Finishes long with notes of bubble gum, plum, lemon zest and of course, cardamom. Not my favorite style, too much cardamom.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very light gold with humongous head (too much, really). Heavy carbonation; light bodied. Aromas of lemon zest, light citrus, straw, nectarine. Tastes much the same with a bittersweet aftertaste, most likely due to the cardamom. This is a decent summer beer. Nothing special though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Full and smooth. A nice malty, nutty flavor tempered with some yeast and a bit of spice. A very long, drawn out finish. If only there could have been canned beers like this 25 years ago.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy pale yellow, finger thick white head n decent lacing. Aroma big coriander right away, sweet orange, phenolic esters. Taste follows nose, a nice pleasant tartness mid mouth, slight noble hop presence. Mouthfeel medium body and carbonation, spicy bite, very dry finish. Overall very nice beer, flavors other than coriander slightly subtle for the style, nicely balanced though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sehr hell und klar, süßlich würziger Geruch, sehr schwer zu beschreiben, wie ein Lager mit sehr interessanten Beigeschmack, frisch, süßlicher Antrunk, interessantes Bier

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy yellow body with a white head that had some retention. A nice presence of carbonation through out. Mostly spices on the aroma. Cardamom was strong, but there were peppery notes. Mild barnyard and a bit of bubble gum. Flavor was a little on the sweet side. Otherwise it was well balanced. Cardamom was strong, but not overpowering. A nice sense of yeast. Carbonation was appropriate. Decent mouth feel.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is just totally overwhelmed by cardamom. Not good. Taste adds some spelt and citrus which balances out the cardamom assault. Prickly mouthfeel. Ok but I really wish the cardamom was dialed back.
