Michigan winter beer festival. Good but nonexceptional saison. Good balance but a little too weak in the flavor department.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Very light straw color, no head. Musty aroma, high carbonation, light body. This may be what they are shooting for, but not my style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can pour clear pale yellow with thick foamy white head. Delicate aroma of light fruits. Taste light fruits, spices, yeast, occasional sweet Jolly Rancher. Palate thin and highly carbonated. Finish light hops.
I would call this a pleasant easy-drinking beer without much to distinguish it. Would do better paired with food.

Small foamy fine mostly lasting white quickly diminishing. Fair white lacing. Transparent high yellow uncarbonated. Tingle start to finish. Crisp soft hop finish. Mild hop softly tart flavor. An OK brew.

On tap at brewery, pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head and some spotty lacing, the aroma has a slight amount of fruit to it and some funk, the flavor has a touch of fruit and must in the finish, nothing really shines though with this brew.

16 ounce can into tulip, no canning date. Pours slightly hazy bright golden straw color with a fairly dense 2 finger bright white head with good retention that reduces to a nice cap. A small bit of lacing clings to the glass as well, but not much. Aromas of big lemon, clove, pepper, grass, apple, spicy and lightly funky yeast. Some pretty nice aromas here with good balance. Taste of big grass, grain, biscuit, light lemon, pepper, clove, and yeast spiciness. Fairly dry finish; but there are some lingering notes of grain, light fruit, bread, and pepper on the finish for a bit. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a crisp finish and easy drinkability as expected. No alcohol noticed at all in the taste or finish. Overall a decent farmhouse saison that is very easy to drink. A bit over the top with grassy and grainy flavors that block out the fruitiness a fair amount.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from a friend. Pours a slight chill-hazed orangey gold. Nose is grape bubblegum and some faint grain and banana. On tasting, it is also quite grape forward with no real farmhouse type character. Really odd with that strong grape note. Damn.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ar: Very light grainy aroma, some corn sweetness.
Ap: Pale as a pils - faint haze - med white head with medium-low retention, leaves some lacing.
T: Cracker maltiness and spicy hop flavor, a little corn sweetness - finish is very short - overall, very clean.
P: Light body with high carbonation - prickly and dry.
O: Practically speaking, this is a border-line pils, regardless of what the label says and what yeast was used - nice thirst quencher for a hot day - could do without the corn flavor.
