3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy orange appearance with a film of white head. The aromas are somewhat subdued. They give off orange peel and sliced green beans. Mercifully in the mouth is it citrus juicy and slightly bitter. It’s a pleasant enough drop this one. I’m not entirely sure it was worth the premium I paid for it, but when you’re driven to greatness by reviewing beer...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I suppose it is entirely appropriate to have this at a very cold outdoor event. Like, 5 degrees F... Unfortunately, I found this unpleasant, with too much hops and too bitter of a finish for the saison style, though some variation has been apparent in American renditions, to be sure. (on tap at Winter Beer Dabbler, January 2014).
