2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber Color, Big Frothy Lacing, Lots Of Lacing Strings. Not Much Of an Aroma, Slightly Funky Undefined Smell. Malt, Lightly Toasted, Light Yeast, A Bit Bitter Finish. Medium Body, Hides Alcohol Well. Doe not Really Taste like a Saison. For me all Anchor Beers seem to be a little old fashioned, slightly Stale. Decent, Drinkable, but nothing to be excited about. Just OK For Me...

[10/11/13] Draught at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Clear amber color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of fruity esters – banana and a bit of apples and a faint spicy note. Sweetish fruity flavor with yeast and a slightly spicy finish with light bitter notes. Nothing great but quite pleasant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper with a thin foamy head. Nose is very interesting and fun to smell, with earthy toffee and light dark-tea notes and a small bitterness that brings a little farmhouse spice. Flavor is balanced though malty, with gorgeous farmhouse grainy notes and slight black tea earthiness and a wee bit of toffee. Subtle grassy funkiness adds the balance, leading to a bitter aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Sugar Maple, Milwaukee. Light amber-gold, medium white head. Sweet and bready, marzipan comes to mind which is odd for a supposed Saison. Spicy and earthy, but missing the lighter body and dry finish I expect in a Saison. Not bad, but just not really what I had in mind.
