3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of this beer is cloudy golden with a large white head (with fairly good retention), and the aroma is like a typical saison with the mixture of sour fruit and dough yeast (but this still smells really nice). The taste is mildly sweet and mildly sour, and the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, thin texture, and an abrupt finish.

Tulip. Pours a light copper, no head, almost no lacing. Mild odor of spices. A decent tasting beer. The spices are mild and just a hint of alcohol. The finish is pleasant, not too watery.

Parkville Fest 2013. Poured out of the can. This was a mess, everything that can be wrong with Belgian brewing. First of all, I thought I was going to get a stout but the label actually read snout. Silly name. The beer is nasty esters run amok, not much more to it. Too sweet as well.

Had I not read the can’s label, I would’ve been hard put to name the style as a saison. Has some citrus, but lacks the funky barnyard flavor and pungent aroma you get from the best saisons. A bit weak on every level, but I suspect that is an attempt to make this style sessionable.

This saison while certainly not the most pungent I have had was really the definition of a good drinkable product. Some nice fruity notes round out a fairly mild tartness with a palate and appearance that are really nothing to speak of. While this may not seem to justify the relatively high score above I feel it should be noted that this is a lovely product for casual drinking and really doesn’t grow old flavor wise. A love beer for just relaxing, or having a casual day out. Well done!
