3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/26/13. On tap at Kickback’s. Thanks, Steve! Hazy orange pour with a small frothy khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces. Nice sour aroma with sweet vinegar and lots of acidic citrus. Tart flavor with a bit of funk and wood, some sweet and sour cherries, and lingering dryness that begs for another sip. Nice! More RBWG people should have rated this!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Served on tap at the Thirsty Monk.
Poured a hazy dark orange with a solid white head with amazing lacing.
Aroma of fresh fruit with the likes of pears and peaches. There is just the slightes hint of barnyard funk which is enough to keep it interesting.
The flavor is very juicy with the same peaches and pears present in the aroma but much more powerful here. More funkiness but it plays nicely in the background. The fruityness lasts throughout but transitions wonderfully into an absolutely bone dry finish like a great Saison should.
Overall, this is one of the best Saisons I have experienced and a truly world-class beer. Glad I was able to try it.
