3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the taproom. The beer pours a clear yellow-orange color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with a floral yeast character and flavors of sweet malt and honey plus a bit of fruit. The finish is sweet with an herbal yeast and fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Can.
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of banana, cotton candy, bubble gum, hint of pepper.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
A profoundly dopey, Americanized, sugary, cartoonish example. The nose is all candyish junk, there’s nothing "farmhouse" or "saison" about this, and it’s even sad for a generic Belgian-style ale. Aimed at folks who don’t actually like saison, presumably.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at the brewery. Pours pretty clear light orange with a white head. Pleasant phenols in the nose, fruits, a little pepper, clove. Body is medium light with good carbonation. Really refreshing yeast notes give spiced hints and a bit of banana even. Good peppery notes come through and the finish is fairly dry. Well balanced and tasty sessionable brew.

Great beer. Light and fruity. Mild ester character from the yeast, but nothing overpowering.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft. clear yellow. sugar and banana syrup nose with touches of dish soap. sweet, sharp and abrasive; banana esters dominates; candy sugar sweetness betrays it’s low gravity claim; carbonation and malt are both coarse. very basic, poorly made, and unpleasant to drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky dark gold with almost no head, with a smooth mellow pale malt cereal tone with a touch of bubblegum, and a touch of Brie cheese. Flavor is pretty sweet and pale, with light caramel and cereal tones, under a yeasty tone that screams out "American version of Belgian"; light fruity eaters that don’t really bring forth any real fruity tones, and a subtle hay tone. Not bad, just too "Americanized"
