3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw color with a tall off-white head. Hop/citric/spice aroma that is nice to decipher. Where are the scent contributed from? The malt, hops, yeast? Nice lace. Light sweet marshmallow start. Mild spicy hops follows with light citric bite. Linger has a bit of a bite with both bitterness and touch of acid. Iím certain this would slake the thirst of the thrashers (and keep them happy). 1/11

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2016 Tap. Brass gold color. Medium leave head. Mostly a typical ale nose, with a hint if funk lurking underneath. In the mouth, struck by banana initially, then sine residual sweetness. Some middle hops, yields to the sweet banana in the finish. Perhaps a suggestion of mint deep into the aftertaste? Bit residual alcohol not my thing.Still pretty enjoyable

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Incredible aroma full of citrus and malt. Slight note of alcohol as it opens up. Very spot on with what I hope for when I pour a saison.
It pours a deeper color than most saisons - amber/gold. Full thick white head that lasts.
You immediately notice the alcohol up front in the taste. Very toasty finish with more citrus. A clean bitter ending. Not enough wheat / farm for me. A little too hoppy.
Effervescent with an assertive feeling in the mouth. Medium to full body.
A very solid saison, but too much hops for me. A bit too bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at The Purity Bar & Kitchen, Birmingham. Hazy gold with white head. Light, fresh, quite zesty saison, there is a green leafy character to the hop, hints of grapefruit. Just a touch of wet cardboard from over energetic carbonation but otherwise itís fine.

Draft @ Sheraton OKC. Slightly musty aroma. Clear dark golden color with white head, dissipates quickly. Flavor reminiscent of saison, slightly musty, clean. Med bodied. Overall, very easy drinking, very enjoyable.
