3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tulip. Batch #712114 with a Best By of 01-2013.
3.5 A: First pour gave me a lot of head, so I needed an additional one to get a full glass. Mildly hazed golden yellow color. Two fingers of frothy/foamy white head. Retention is about average and a good bit of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Good bit of funk and fruit in this. Grapefruit and orange kick things off. Melon and hints of various stone fruit. Flowery/herbal funk with notes of forest after a rain and apple orchard. Elderflowers and chamomile. Dry hay and wet grass.
4.0 T: Just as herbal and flowery as the nose. Too much herbalness that I donít even know which ones to name. In truth I only know a few by heart anyway. Letís just say that itís herbal. Melon, peach, grapefruit, orange, and hints of pineapple fruitiness. Same funk as in nose. Lightly spicy with pepper being the most apparent flavor. This is bold and powerful to say the least. Quite complex as well.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation is near the upper limit of what Iím okay with. Good spritziness and good creaminess as well.
4.0 D: Iím not a huge fan of superly herbal saisons, but this is one of the best in that genre. Complex, powerful, and easy to put down.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, thanks seymour, poured into a tulip. Pours translucent orange with small white head. Some small bubble lacing, medium body, well carbonated, and citrus aroma. Taste is yeast, citus, with a dry finish. Good saison, 8% well covered, a little too yeasty to be great for me.
