3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Anderson Valley, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Nose brings out Belgian yeast, dough, and spices - doesn’t smell like an authentic saison at all. Flavour confirms this, with some nice floral notes, Belgian spices, and fruity esters. Light, floral and doughy - again, nothing like an authentic saison. Still, nice refresher.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent yet boring saison. Pours an orange with a nice thick head. Smells like citrus. Taste is like hoppy grapefruit. A little forgettable. Had on tap at Elevation 66.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: slight haze on a golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, grass, honey, and something like strawberries. Flavor is rather dry with tart grass, wheat, hay, malt, and a light yeast note. Not a standout for me, not enough yeast funk noted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on draft at the brewery. This is a solid saison. There is a phenolic yeast character. There are some floral notes, a form bitterness, grainy, and some astringency.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Basically ginger beer and not a Saison. At least not of what I have experienced. Girly beer. Yuck. It is unbelieveable how many bad beers I will try to get to a great one. This ones is pretty bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Served up a hazed, golden-amber body with a medium-sized, creamyish, white head.
Smell: A mingled, mixed aroma of waterlogged spices atop the base malt melange.
Taste: Initially tangy, but also a bit sugary. Slightly grainy. Some appleskin and apricot fruitiness. Some perceived ’heat’ from the ginger, a little anise, too. Slight bitterness. Remains tangy, vaguely fruity until the drying finish with some lingering spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: If I were to line up my saisons in order of preference, Mowkeef would be right near the end.
