3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on-tap at Palmer Place. Poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pours a wonderful cloudy gold color with a nice 1 finger off-white head leaving a great smooth lace.
S: Floral hops with a nice yeasty backbone. Fruits are prevalent at the back but there is some searching there.
T: Nice wheat upfront with a sweet apple middle. A mild tartness follows with a nice dry, bitter hop finish.
M: very crisp and light bodied. Incredibly smooth leaving a great dry finish with a slight bitterness on the back end.
O: This was my first saison and I was very impressed. The different flavor profiles all compliment each other nicely and leaves you wanting a little more to replenish the dry finish.
Serving type: on-tap

Mouthfeel is dry, tiny tart, very tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter, dry and tiny tart with crackers, white pepper, cloves, allspice, tangerines and hints of oatmeal cookies.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at my house, courtesy of Stateline liquors. Pour is a hazy straw with a thin white colored head. The latter is perhaps the least impressive part of this beer. The aroma is floral, spicey, and sweet. The flavor follows, phenolic elements tempered (slight pepper) with a definite hop presence, citrus notes, slight funk, yeast. , some spicing. Body is full to moderate, light carbonation, especially for the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz and 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin wisp of white head that recedes quickly. The aroma is citrus and pine hops and fruity yeasts with notes of plum, pineapple, pear, cinnamon, and coriander. A hit of piny hops start the taste and then subside to a fruity yeast character, that is subdued. The finish is mildly dry and tart. Medium body with a nice dry finish, medium carbonation. Very refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma is lemony, zest, light sweetness, and a bit of yeast. Very inviting. Medium to full body. Flavor isn’t as lemon forward as the aroma suggests. Citrus, floral, light biscuit, sweet malts, tropical citrus, and light candied sugar. Top-notch brew.
