3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am not a fan of this type of brew. That being said this is a nice aromatic floral beer, lots of flavor and very perfumed. It is stronger on the bitter side, which is strange considering that this beer is so fruity. It held a good head, and I am not sure what the IBU rating was but this one was rather interesting in how close it tasted to an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light, crisp hay with a very slight head. Aroma is spicy and citrusy like an IPA from but with the malt and yeast balance of a belgian. Taste is citrus up front with grapefruit, spice, and biscuity yeast. Very crisp and refreshing without a hint of the higher level ABV.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 cc from State Line. Pours turbid canary with 3-finger clingy white head that laces well. Nose is dry, spicy, with floral hops, yeasty malt, and fruit. Tastes dry, very floral up front, with mid-palate hops, fruit, and yeasty malt. Very complex and easy to drink, this one is stellar.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: lightly hazed straw with a huge and fluffy white head that left tons of lace. Aroma: mmm…citrus, yeast, funk, rice, passion fruit, kiwi. Taste: citrus and light, crackery funk up front, over a solid bed of yeasty spices. Finish: all that delicious front slowly fades to a light, tingly bitterness. Notes: Great saison. Creamy/light mouth, and you’d never know it was an 8% abv. Absolutely great.

Two finger head upon pour. First had at Savor and was very impressed with this one. Apparently, Boulevard must think highly of it as well since they served it 2 years in a row. Very nice carbonation, and pleasing aroma. Haven’t had a ton of saisons but this is highly enjoyable. Wonderful taste and mouthfeel leaves you wanting more with a nice touch of the abv towards the end. This is a highly drinkable summer type beer with a lot going on, far superior to a lot of seasonal offerings. Happy that I have access to this one on a consistent basis.
