4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a small white head that quickly fades and leave you with a small rim that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of pepper, fruits and basically just your classic saison dialed in almost perfectly. I’d be really curious to have a white wine barrel aged version of this! Taste is of dry and moderately bitter with some fresh cereals and pepper. Light fruity tartness. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderately high, I could drink gallons of this without tiring I’m sure! Yum!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle to a tulip. Pours an extremely pale and troubled golden. On the nose, classic saison. Pepper and lemon, with an interesting hop presence. Nice bitterness (rye and hops?). Tastes like citrus and pepper. The finish is indeed dry. Well done saison!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Camba Tap House, Munich. Pale straw color, lacy head. Tight citrus and sweet strawberries, green grapes, currants and some spices (orange peel?). Lactic aromas too. Dry, grainy flavor with a hint of berryish sourness. Nice, narrow bitterness and peppery yeast on the finish. Light and refreshing on the palate. Nice high carbas. Good saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma and dominant flavour is more like a wit , with banana yeast to the fore. Light carbonation, and very easy to drink

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma is yeasty cheese and basement with muted fruity esters. Appearance is hazy light yellow with insignificant head, nice sparkle, and trace lacing. Taste is medium sour with only light sweet and bitter balance. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and fizzy carbonation, dry, bitter/sour finish. Overall, kind of a Kolsch-y saison. Not digging the sourness and bitterness of this. Like other Allagash offerings way more than this.

A little more hoppy than I was expecting, but still a really good saison otherwise. Would buy again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold, head quickly disappears. Smells like grass, a little sulfur, pepper, light malt, and a little sour. Dry (but much sweeter than Dupont and the like), moderate - pronounced bitter, light sour. Tastes like passion fruit and pepper, a tiny bit if banana/clove. Super refreshing. Pretty mild compared to super-dry Belgian saisons or wacky/sour new American craft saisons.I like it because it is easier.

Sample at Allagash brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Not getting a ton on the nose. Lots of barnyard on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid.
