3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Beer Temple. Pours clear amber witha thick off white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, herbs. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Clove coming out strong in the palate with caramel and Belgian yeast. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Weird but not unpleasant take on the saison, if you can even call it that anymore.

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...
