3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a branded stem glass. Pours hazy golden with a large white head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a minimal amount of lace. On the nose there are notes of lemon, banana, coriander, grass, apple and yeast. Up front, the flavour begins subtly sweet with fruity notes from the nose combined with peppery, spicy notes. It dries out substantially towards the end and closes out with a long, peppery dry finish. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dry texture and average carbonation. Overall this is a decent saison but it is a little dry and light on the palate for my taste. 2013-03-07

Deep golden pour with a shortish nearly white head. Lots of white wine on the nose with some funkiness and lots of yeasty fruit. Still mostly wine-like on the palate with less funk. There’s a certain breadiness with some fruit and something slightly off in the background.
