Plastic taster on tap at Party Town. Tried the three from the series in the row, last one I tried. It was way different from the other two, much more pale and citrusy, I liked the more bold ones better. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Good row of lace. Medium body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Lemony, citrusy flavor, some crackers / biscuits, light spice. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty. Light spicy bite. Oddly citrusy for a biere de garde

Golden pour, very fruity in both the smell and taste. Maltiness is there but it is fruit-dominated.

On Tap at Trion in New Haven, Indiana. Poured a clear goldish yellow, with slight whitish head...aroma is slightly funky lemon/apple mixture. Nothing overwhelming in the taste, slight citrus, bready, dry and crisp. Clean finish. This one would go well with a variety of meals.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Secret Stash Bash. Light straw color, with a huge white head. The aroma is faint lemons, hay, biscuit dough, and some mellow yeasty funk. The flavor is sweet and a little musty in the finish. Light body, crisp feel, with a smooth, creamy, and mellow finish. I thought it was brave of Bell’s to bring this to a fest with lots of big stouts and sour ales, but I was impressed, in spite of the competition. It is a very light, flavorful, and wonderfully unique beer. I wish I had a bottle to age, and see how it ages.

Lighter saison style. Nice mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. Nice lingering saison flavor. Not as dry as advertised, but good. Not spicy as I would've expected.
