3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very nice brown/red appearance with solid head. Peppery spice typical non-funky Saison aroma. Taste is like a relatively mild Saison with a bit of malt and Belgian yeast. It’s good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Shawan’s Liquors. Pours amber with a thin brown head. Has a bit of the Belgian yeast thing on the nose. A little sweet on the tongue and it’s missing a lot of the Saison’s funky barnyard elements. Finishes clean. Eh!

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber/red color. Yeasty strain is very nice with the spice settling well. The carbonation makes for almost effervescent instead of just bubbles. Almost tangerine aroma with a fall crispness. Tap

Draft. Hazy golden amber color. Aroma of sweaty but polite animals and haystacks. Taste is just haystacks, and maybe some funky straw. Not bad.
