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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011-12-03. Very lightly hazy golden yellow body, small white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is a bit odd, grassy hops, fairly bitter, sweet pale malt, odd floral character. Aroma is similar, odd floral, herbal notes. 6+ Smooth average palate. Dry bitter finish lingers. 3+ I didn’t pick up on the spices all that much, I wonder if that means they are mild or just out of reach for me today? Tap at Coles, Buffalo
