3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Listed at 5.8%. Nose is a little funky, fruity and well fun. In the mouth it stradles a fine line between a traditional farmhouse saison and the less interesting modern take that most brewers seem to employ for the style. Some ripe fruit, mainly apples and some pineapple, bubblegum and a hint of dirt and blanket with a decent length to the finish. Not bad.

On tap at Novare Res. Pale golden orange with white head. Mildly herbal orange aroma. Extremely light toasty orange biscuit sweetness. Extremely light dry finish not bitter or herbal or peppery. Basically, you’d have to use your imagination to find any flavor in this at all.
