3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy, tan. Bubblegum forward, with slightly biscuity malt, touch of acidity late. Maybe too much residual sweetness for me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle/can from Belmont Station. Pours orange/amber with a slight white head. Aroma is dusty/earthy/spicy. Med body. Flavor is dusty/earthy/spicy and arguably some floral/fruit hop. The earthy approaches barnyard. Doesnít get there. The flavors are quite strong. It finishes near barnyard and spicy. I vote for Belgian yeast (tho Iím not sure about fruit esters, there is a banana note. I think.) Finishes saison/farmhouse. Firmly so. Tasty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin), with notes of bubble gum, grains of paradise, perfume, plastic, corn syrup.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Simply terrible...sugar syrup, goopy, perfumey and artificial smelling, just an absolute mess. Repulsive even. Canít believe they call this a saison. Oh wait, yes I can.
