3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light brown with a pale head. Aroma is honey, brown sugar, caramel, raisins. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate, warming finish. Taste is caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee. Not bad, but in no way a saison - a Belgian Golden Strong maybe.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a very cloudy orange brown color with a thin off-white head. Aroma has lots of fruit, honey, and yeast notes. Some sweet candy and caramel as well. Taste is very flavorful with lots of fruit, honey, and malts. Alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Finish is a bit malty with some caramel and more honey. Overall the flavors blend pretty well together and it is a good combination.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly transparent golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells pleasantly yeasty and estery. Tastes like it smells with some sweetness. Average on the palate. Drinks fairly easy, especially for the abv.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
"A crystalline clear amber colored beer with a big sudsy texture, white head. There’s some hang time. Settles into a moderate ringlet and some film. Wheaty nose. Grapes and sweet honey in the tasting. Not as pleasant as I’d hope for, but the light, medicinal slick bodied beer is drinkable"

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with medium off white head. Floral aromas. Citrus notes as well as a nearly overpowering sweetness a la tropical fruit. I had high hopes for this beer, but it?s unbalanced and rather unremarkable.

Lots of sweetness from the honey but not overpowering. Medium body but no real depth of flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber color with a moderate head. Nose is both sweet and sour, which is a bit odd. The honey comes through in both the taste and nose, but the sourness of the style dominates. Finishes with a bit of a bite

Had the bomber. Aroma was of pretty decent Belgian yeast. It didn’t taste so much like a Saison though, but not in a bad way. The honey was present enough on the back end, and went down smooth considering the 11.5 ABV Not the barnyard funky style Saison that I love, but very good in it’s own right. Will definitely buy again.
