4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Varía mucho de lote en lote así que es difícil de describir. Es una saison muy particular. Aroma a levadura, floral y cítrico, muy seca y con una acidez muy pronunciada que le da un perfil "sour". Compleja y deliciosa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Jumped at the chance to include this one because their bottles are always so expensive. Pours a lightly cloudy amber color with a small white head that settles into a tiny ring. Lots of sour fruits lead the way here - plum, nectarine, tart cherries - with brown sugar, oak, balsamic vinegar, and sour candy. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour mouthfeel. Drinks kind of like a sour brown. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge ’saison’ aroma in a hazy straw pour. Lovely fruity taste is strong to start but recedes quickly - leaving one wanting another! Different than the regular saison - but in a brilliant way.

From a snazzy flip top bottle. Orange, lightly hazy, nice white head. Smells like tart fruit, wine, some oak. Taste is lemony and cherry, white wine, some funky, rustic flavors, and some woody notes. Tasty...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate musty lemon peel, citrus, hay, funk, light oak, and maybe a touch of white wine. It pours a cloudy dull orange with a three finger white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is a decent amount of sediment floating around. The flavor starts with a quick dose of moderate citrus with orange and lemon peel. The finish has light-moderate sour lemon, funk, faint white wine, oak, and a hint of florals. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.
