Pours a medium gold with a foamy white head. It has a nice floral aroma wit some biscuit and clove, and a flavor that has some spiciness along with a malty backbone and a spicy, mostly dry finish.

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.

Bottle thanks to Boisebeerguy. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a medium white head. Aroma is fruit, citrus, some gfresh grass, and a hop note. Taste is as the aroma with a nice fruit sweetness, good hop with some pine and citrus. It is nice to see a few new things from Anchor

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks nice. A light fruit aroma. This is very fruity on the second sip. First sip is light and bubbly. A surprisingly dry finish but fruity throughout. Strange. Okay.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber, thin foamy white head, little lacing, light carbonation. Somewhat of a sweet sweaty aroma, slightly rustic, a bit barnish, but not as floral as other saisons. Soft breadiness on the tongue, light sweetness, touch of caramel and biscuit. Seems more of a rustic amber than a Saison. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes mealy, bready, and nothing like I expected for a Saison. Not bright and floral like others. Not bad, but not what I expected at all.
