4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, Real Gastropub, Honolulu.
Hazy, light tan. Aroma is big dusty saison yeast...lots of Blaugies on this one. Complex and the hops are a bit herbal as well. Has a fair bit of the dusty old barn yeast character, and a fair bit of pale malt sweetness. Fairly big body for the style. Effervescent, burpy. Hops lend a lot of dryness. I wouldn’t even pick it out as amarillo...the beer has a pretty strong Blaugies character. Once the yeast goes in the glass, the beer is softer...the yeast actually mellows and more sugars come out, contrary to expectations. Some of the hop is washed out of the finish as well.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a fluffy white top. Aroma is citrus, apples, some faint banana and a little wheat tartness. Taste is a faint sweet, light maltyness at first, then into fruity esters and wheat pungency. Hints of pepper and clove in the aftertaste. Medium-light body with just above avg levels of co2.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kick. A hazy orange colored beer topped by a small off-white head. Oranges, pine cones, some yeast and pale malts on the nose. A nice bitterness in the flavor, with fruityness.dominating. Some herbal and yeasty hints, with a fruity, herbal and yeasty finish. A strange one this one, sure lovely, but the yeast impact is too big. Still I have no problem drinking more than one glass of it. There’s also something resembling tap line rinse here, lightly chemical, don’t think it’s the lines though. Will return. 141016

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Kick. Unclear orange body with a fast disappearing off-white head. Strong and a bit unusually in aroma with citric fruit, oranges, apricot and spices. Flavor has sweet malt, ripe fruit, oranges, oranges zest, more citric fruit and spicy yeast. Medium body and pleasant aftertaste with some bitterness. A bit unusually as a Saison, strong in flavor, complex, a bit rough but refreshing and really nice. I just appreciate this more the more I drink.
