4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle dated: best by 02-2016
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy yellow to orange color with a foamy yet bubbly head that quickly died off. Barely any lacing clung.
The smell was pure sweet freshly cut grass with a pure lemongrass and lemon peel.
The taste followed the nose in a super sweet refreshing and sticky way. Light refreshing lemon aftertaste leading to a sweet wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a really good sessionability about it.
Overall, super great saison. Well done and we’ll worthy of having it with its respected food.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft @ Local Option - Chicago, IL - 2013 vintage) Cloudy gold with a ton of white foam. Dry spice and lots of yeast in the aroma. Didn’t catch much from the Brett. Flavor is dry and champagne-like with a lot of grass and hop notes. A bit too dry but not really sour. Still decent.

Tap at Groveland tap. Gold with white head and good lacing. Beautiful hop and spice aroma. Spicy and clean. Slightly sweet. Can taste the yeast, but more of the slightly bitter spice. Very good. Almost a spicier version of tank 7.

Big frothy, rocky head and a yellow pour. Very floral aroma with some dry cereal and sweet yeast. Also a little banana and clove. Smoothy carbonated and the alcohol comes through in a pleasant way. Very nice! The smokestack series limited release continues to be very impressive.
