3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Flavors are lemon, yeast, malt, citrus. Color are light amber and darker than you would normally associate with a saison. Flavors are hoppy with citrus and a dry finish. I like this one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh grenade from Beach Brewing. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Honey moves from the background as the dominant aroma and nearly masks the leather, candi sugar, and light citrus aromas. The flavor is typical of a saison (barnyard, yeast, light citrus) but the honey does add just a bit more sweetness than normal and the rye perhaps gives this beer more body. Both the honey and rye are nice touches on a very well done saison.
