3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky gold with a massive white head which filled the glass and realised suddenly that it had other plans. With nary an apology, the head buggered off leaving an embarrassed film on top of the beer. The beer’s aroma was of classic Saison as I appreciate it: lemon curd, some funky basement, cider vinegar and a dash of creamy honey. This handily surmises the flavour but with juicy ripe Meyer lemons, some understated honey sweetness and a faintly astringent twinge on the finish. I rather enjoyed this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours hazy yellow with lots of fluffy head. Aroma of yeast funk, sweet honey, some light citrus and pear, a bit of spice, and more funkiness. Flavor follows the smell very closely with some additional sweetness and body, some nice finishing spice and light grassy hop character. Body is light to light medium with medium plus carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. Nothing special but worth drinking on a nice summer day.

Full on citrus aroma followed by the expected Belgian flavor makes for an excellent experience. Made even better by its low alcohol content (which allows one to have more than one).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp palate that leaves a lingering spice taste on the mouth from the ginger. Tastes very carbonated and slightly sweet from the honey. Slightly malty taste at the back of the mouth. Overall a good, different beer, but not my favorite.

Tap at Eureka.
I’m glad to have the chance to try this one; Eureka delivers big this time. Hazy pour, modest head. Wheaty American saison, not as much banana as some, gently sweet rather than aggressively dry, hint of spice from the ginger, decided honey presence especially in the aroma. Overcarbonated, unfortunately. Very nice. I could have gone for another one or two of these.
