3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stopped in to 4 Hands this evening and had a couple of glasses. This was clear golden with decent carbonation and a white fluffy head that left some lacing. Saison yeast was what dominated the aroma. It was also prominent in the flavor. Nice fruit is tasted and later some pepper. Pale malts are moderate. This is a classic saison, if a clean one. Funk and barnyard were bare minimum. This is definitely an Americanized version of a saison in that is was so clean with no rough edges. Nicely done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
sample at brewery this was my favorite beer of the day of the 4 I tried Pours a slightly hazy brass amber with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malt and some grassy bittering hops with some tart light fruity character. Starts with an effervescent carbonation and lightly sweet toasty pale malts with some strawberry and guava tartness before a smooth, bittersweet grassy finish. A pretty unique and drinkable saison

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is moderately earthy and peppery. Hint of citrus. Med body. Flavor is peppery, earthy, and has a bit of zest that pops up mostly in the finish. Struggling to find pear, but the other flavors are so zingy I’m not sure I’ve got it. This is a really tasty beer, and seems pretty much to style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a clean golden yellow. light white thin fizzy head. light retention light pear combined with a fresh funk. hint of citrus hops. similar to nose, a well balanced pear to funk ratio. nothing over done here, just balance. white pepper and orange zest are very hidden. maybe a hint of burn in the finish. mild to moderate carbonation, clean but dry finish this was really good, better than prunus. i would and plan on drinking more of this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy gold with a average white head. Aroma is citrus fruit with some pepper and banyard yeasty funk. Flavor is a very bitter citrus fruit with more of the funk and pepper. Could use a bit more of that funkyness but this is a very easy drinking saison with a citrus fruit hiding in the backround.
