>> Full haze glowing peach golden. Good foam, great lacing. Nose is estery pear, extreme hefeweizen style not wanted in saison. Taste is dusty, chalky, flashes of sauerkraut. Chalky, tangy, papery mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is heavy clove and banana like a hefeweizen with some background spice and pepper. Taste is dominated by the clove and banana with some light pepper and a bit of dry orange and some background malt sweetness. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. Drinks like an imperial hefeweizen with a slight twist to me and from that perspective it was enjoyable.

Draft at the brewery. Cloudy golden orange pour, with a white head. Grain, sweet malt, banana, mild clove, and yeast. Too sweet for my liking of saisons.

I had this on tap at the Belching Beaver Brewery. It’s a nice spicy pour with good flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy orange colored pour with a white head. A bit sweet for a Saison, lots of sweet bread and malt notes. Fairly heavy on the banana esters, some citrus peel, pear, and a mild spiciness. Some grass on the back end. The flavor is also on the sweet side. Sugar and bread, some banana, and orange all provide sweetness. Mild yeast and spice notes, mostly clove, with a hint of grass and floral hops. Okay beer, but not really what I like in a Saison.
