3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Schlafly Fresh Hop fest - Pours hazy golden/orange with a dense white head. The aroma is very fruity and lemony along with some earth and funky saison yeast. Medium sharp grainy body. The taste is like the aroma and is fairly dry. The finish is powdery and chalky. Nice hoppy saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the 2011 Fresh Hop Festival at Schlafly Bottleworks. Pours a bright gold color with a small white head and just a little bit of cloudiness. "Huge bouquet of fresh citrus", indeed. Good lord. This explodes with lemon and tangerine, along with pineapple, spices, fresh grains, pale malts, straw, and just a wee bit of funk. Flavor follows suit, but is dialed down in comparison. Also brings some melon and apricot. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, fruity mouthfeel. Great saison and can’t wait to try more from this brewery.
