2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, grass, hints of spicy, slightly soapy notes into some flowers, touch of pear and white grape, but mainly pretty husky. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, some spice, herbal notes, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, coriander, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, spices, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, coriander, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness and slight citrus tang on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of pale malt, spices, and earthy hop flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly dry mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice blonde ale. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of pale malt, spices, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

From a bottle in Grand Haven MI. Pours a golden yellow with a slight haze. Arab is slight floral and slight citrus with some yeastiness. Flavor follows. Medium bodied. Not really what I'd calla saison. But very drinkable beer.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent fuller orange with foamy off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells of dough and coriander with mild notes of hops and citrus. Tastes like it smells with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Alright.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Tap: copper and amber body with a thin, white head that skims the top of the beer and is gone completely within a few moments. No lacing, no webbing. Aroma is herbal lemongrass, lemon zest, citrus spritz, orange zest, and some green tea leaves. A little bit of spice, too, almost like mint or clove. Taste is sweet up front with a decent balance of herbal-like hops, lemongrass, coriander, orange zest, and mild clove... Finishing touch of lemon and mild bubblegum... almost like Belgian yeast? Thin mouth feel makes it feel a little watery, not enough carbonation. Flavors are pretty good, just too light. Amped up a bit, this would be pretty damn good. It’s decent as is.
