3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Grainy malts, lemony hops and dough for the yeast, with pepper in the background. Color is large, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is medium hazy amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic, and finishes moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A refreshing beer, but just an okay Saison.

Large shared bottle.
Very effervescent with a relatively large, semi-durable white head.
Very low funk for style. Nicely fruity. Lively, crisp and dry.
O: great choice as a session saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Starts citrus and contues with very zesty lemon and pepper flavors. Finishes very dry and I get a small/very small metallic taste disappears quickly. I wish someone would make a legit true to style saison that was lower in abv, but this beer is true to the times of today with high alcohol content and a crazy good yeast flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark yellow, lots of big bubbles, generous off-white head that lasts for a while and leaves little lace. Aromas of black pepper, bright citrus and white wine grape. Grape and apple sweetness, modest tartness with pepper notes, citrus and a whiff of toast. Light to medium body, huge carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a light fruit sweetness in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. 7.8% ABV per the label. Batch 010. Bottled on3/20/2014. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, with extensive Belgian curtain lacing, over an effervescent, slightly hazy amber (SRM 9) body......nose is light colored fruits (pear, apple), moderate spice, light cereal malts, hints of herbal hops.....taste is slightly sweet with pear, apple tones, moderate toasted malts, leading to a peppery, moderately dry, slightly hopped finish.....mouth feel, light of medium body, slight alcohol warmth, good acid, no astringency, high carbonation, with slight creaminess. This recipe has been changed with the large drop in the ABV. This version is a very basic Saison. It could use more phenolics, particularly pepper towards the finish, and a larger ester component would be another improvement. A different yeast or a higher fermentation temperature would be helpful. On the positive side, it tastes good, and has incredible carbonation, which is spot on to the style. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
