3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can... Poured clear golden yellow with a moderate white head that faded quickly. Nose had yeast notes and esters with spicing and grapefruit. Nice flora tones, candied malt sweetness, grassy and lemon zest. Peppercorns and yeast spice with a full finish. Bready grains for balance. Not a bad beer. Not the best 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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour w/ a thin white head that leaves speckled lacing. The aroma is deliciously enticing robust w/ spice. Unfortunately the taste falls short of the scent. It’s light & watery as the majority of Saisons are. The spice flavors are undermined by the thinned of this beer!

Nice. Comes together with a lot of tangy apple finish. Pours cloudy blonde with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness. Pours with big puffy cloudy of foam. Some hay. Tap at DC Beer festival.
