Hazy orange. Great lacing. White head vanishes. Coriander is prevalent if not over powering. Nice beer with a bit of kick.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught in Raleigh. Pours golden-orange with a small white head. Aroma is wheat malt, coriander, bit of yeast, some sweet fruit notes. Flavor is mainly wheat malt and coriander as well, sort of witbier-ish. Hint of funkiness, though not very saisony really. Nonetheless, enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at The Pit. Light orange with a small fast fading head. Nose is pretty faint, some grass, yeast, light bready malt. Flavor is similar. Drinkable, but not much of a saison. Very dull and lacking character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sucked a few of these back at King’s, Raleigh, while immersed in the molten sounds of the mighty YOB. Cloudy pale gold pour with a very thick head and a pretty lively carbonation. Soft yeasts and bready malts in the nose, with doses of dry hops and spice. Full, smooth mouthfeel with just a bit of playfulness on the palate. Taste is dominated by the same yeasts and malts familiar from their tripel, and really comes across more like a biere de garde. But I thought it was okay overall.

Brownish orange, thin ring of foam. Faint aroma - lightly spicy, with subdued herbal notes. A bit sweeter and heavier than I was expecting - notes of citrus and cinnamon, plus some herbal notes. On tap, Flying Saucer, Raleigh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Pours soft straw gold with one finger of frothy white head. Nose is muted, notes of spicy hops and moist bread. Lots of diacetyl/butter comes out with warmth. Flavor is no good, way too much of a bite and definitely some buttery notes with hints of corn and grass. Dry bitter palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Federal. Pours slightly hazy, not very carbonated golden. Barely any head. A little hoppy, some floral and citric notes, yeast, and Belgian sugar. Pretty standard saison at first. The problem was when I closed my eyes and smelled it, all I could think about was the cheap sweet floral aromatics used in port-a-potties. Kind of gross that way. That said, pretty decent when I could repress that thought.

Draft - pours a cloudy dark yellow with a thin whitish head. Aroma of flowers, hops, yeast and fruit. Taste of floral hops, sour fruit (apricot), yeast and coriander... I really enjoyed this beer. My wife loved it. Solid selection I am glad we tried.
