3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fancy squat 22oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a thin near white head. The aroma offers up apricot, red apple, coriander like spices and plum. The taste is similar with smooth yeasty spice infused fruitiness. It gets more and more yeast Saison spices and yeastiness to midway as coriander and cloves and other spices continue to linger deep into the taste experience. Plenty of yeasty spices and fruitiness here.

Very nice bronze color with ample, fluffy, tight tan foam, settling rather gradually. I smell lemon, grass, biscuit, and some barnyard funk. Semi-sweet, malty, bitter and twangy... I get some dunkelweiss aspects like the sweet notes and rich, roastyness, but also just a bit of a kick of acidic brightness. Hops linger for a bit on the tongue. I will attribute the mildly vegetal and unplaceable bitterness to the Yerba Santa. It makes for a unique brew, but Iím not sure it plays well with others in recipe.

On tap. Clear orange copper with a lasting film of cream. Nose of funk, white grape, spicy resin. Taste is earthy spiced grape, light funk, resin and citrus. Light-medium body has medium-high, but smooth, carbonation and is well balanced with a dry toasty finish.

A - pours a nice rich golden brown with low micro bubbled white head. S - bam Belgian yeasts in the face! Green leafy spice, over ripe apples, doughy and candi sugar malts. Fruity esters. M - medium light bright body. Slight tang, lingering spicy malty end. T - relatively simple Belgian yeasts, over ripe apples, with some nice spices. Some biscuity malts, dry bitter grasses and light citrus notes. O - spicy and lightly sweet nice brew. Good but not great. 3.3

Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is Belgian yeasty with some caramel malt. Flavor is a nice caramel malt with some funkiness and herbal spice. More of a funky BDG than saison but itís a decent to above average beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear, rich orange with a short, sticky whitish head. The aroma picked up fresh citrus and mint paired with cloves, peppery notes, and a dose of floral.. semi-sweet honey base.. aggressive and kinda funky on the nose, and I enjoyed it. The flavor found bitter herbal and exotic citrus notes on the tip of the tongue.. sweet honey and bready notes followed.. bright spicy character and herbs laced throughout.. finished almost scratchily dry with herbs, mint, and citrus.. interesting. Medium-bodied with fuller carbonation on the palate.. tangy and engaging.. I enjoyed this.

Tap @ In de Wildeman, small sample. Slight hazy deep golden color, medium off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, hint of bubblegum, some caramel, bit fruity. It smells like an american impression of a belgian style. The same thing I dislike about lowland brewers making "IPA"s, goes for american brewers making belgian styles. Itís not even close. The malt base makes it less dry and crisp. In taste there is some bubblegummy yeast, some fruity sweetness.
