2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer is a hazy golden color with a large white head that seems to fade at a mild pace, and the aroma combines hints of sour fruit, yeast, and rye. The taste is quite sour, slightly bitter, and a touch sweet, which doesn’t give me the balance and flavor combinations I expect when I see a "saison." Furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a sour finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a finger of quickly settling white head. Some thin lacing. Aroma is mildly funky, musty, wheaty, with a hint of manure. Flavor is similar to aroma, funky, mild ctirus, with a bitter aftertaste that lingers. Very mild and disappointing throughout. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. A lacking saison.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Faint caramalized sugar, belgian yeast and coriander aroma.Yellowish gold with a fine foam rim. Immensly crisp and hoppy flavor upfront with a full bodied malt giving off dough, caramel, herbs and maple syrup. Finish is a strongly carbonated continuous hop flavor. Overall, this is actually really good. Pleasantly light yet, full flavored. I’d give this an A- rating.

Gold, hazy. off-white head. Grainy-sweet malt with some cornlike notes, a little hay, some light herbal and earthy notes. Finishes grainy and relatively dry, with some lingering herbal notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from bottle into snifter...a beautiful poor by the way, very photogenic. Cloudy bright gold with a good, lasting white head. Floral and citrus nose. Great body and feel...leaves a soured aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance was cloudy light golden with diminishing white creamy 1 finger head, hints of lacing. Aromas are stale bread, citrus fruits, dirty socks, funky yeasts. Taste are grainy wheat, slight pils or pale malts. Lemony hops and then funky sour barnyard, not in good way. Palate was soft creamy co2 with light body, citrusy, medincial stale bread lasting unbalanced finish. Not my cup of tea...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden orange color with a big rocky off white head with nice retention and good lacing. I get lemon and orange zest aroma with a little funk and grain on the nose. Taste light fruit, orange and banana, with quite a bit of toasted grain and a bit of pepperiness. Has a saltine cracker flavor mid palate and finishes semi dry with a slight bitterness and more grain. Soft mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. A little clean and a bit off for the style. Could use some more funk and less grain, but not a bad tasting beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy straw-orange. Lots of off-white head. Aroma malt-forward, but with some yeasty ester notes as well. Body lively on tongue, finish very abrupt, maybe some hints of grass or spice? Not bad, just a little slight.

Twelve ounce bottle, a limited release. Pours a cloudy golden color, with a long lasting white head. Aroma is thinly of hops. Taste is typical of a Saison. Good flavor, but this isn’t my favorite style. Thumbs up.
