3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at South Beach in OB. Clear pale golden with a small white head, fading to a ring before long. Aroma is a clean US version of a saison, light bananas and apricot, some white pepper. No rustic farmhousey anything. Flavor follows suit, not crazy strong, but bananas and pepper dominate. Not sweet, but the esters have me thinking a bit otherwise. A Belgian pale,perhaps? Semi-dry, bitterness at a 3. Light to medium body, low to moderate carbonation. OK. 7-3-6-3-13--3.2

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a nice yellow color with a white head. The aroma is floral with some light funky yeast and spice. The flavor is a good balance of spicy yeast and light, grainy malts. Very subdued in every way… malt, yeast and spice, but very pleasant as well. Drinkable. Theres some light fruitiness and bubblegum sweetness if you look for it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dutch’s. The keg we received is labeled 5.5%. Mildly hazy golden color. Thin white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, sort of softer crisp lighter carbonation, with a dry finish. Nice herbal spice flavor, some lemon citrus. Easy drinking and refreshing. Moderate bitter taste, light savory. Tasty light sessionable saison. I wish there more beers like this readily available.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma and flavor have some yeast, floral notes, coriander and light peppery spice, hints of banana and light citrus. Decent enough, but as a saison it’s not very exciting.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a slightly hazy fuller gold with white lacing. Smells yeasty and spicy. Tastes like it smells, only better and with a bit of hops. Nice on the palate. Enjoyable.
