3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent saison. The nose is sweet malt with floral and citrus hop notes. Golden with a white tightly pack foam head. Sweet with balancing floral hops. Light to medium bodied with a tight bubble formation and a quick dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Its hard to fit this beer into a category. Pours a great orange/copper color and its the palate with blenty of bright citrus. Pineapple, lemon and nectarine flavors are contrasted nicely with with a malty sweetness. Didn’t get a whole lot of barnyard funk typical of saisons. Good beer versatile with food pairings. Perfect with some spicy thai. Would like to see how else this hop could be utulized.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled 7/12/2012. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, pear, pineapple, clove, orange zest, pepper, herbal, earth, grass, floral, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity. Taste of big lemon, pear, pepper, pineapple, apple, orange zest, clove, herbal, grass, earth, floral, and yeast spices. Light earthy bitterness on the finish with light tartness; with lingering notes of light fruits, lemon, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, grass, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of flavors; great spiciness/malt balance; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a lightly slick and very crisp and prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a world class saison! Fantastic balance and complexity of flavors; insanely smooth and crisp to sip on. A truly incredible experience when it is quite fresh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite tasty saison here. Heavy orange/lemon notes with a nice spicy kick to it. A bit malty and cardboardy but not too bad. Very tasty stuff.

Pours a frothy light golden. Aroma of farmhouse funk, belgian yeast, some nice spice. Flavor has a belgian yeast flair. Light mouthfeel and heavy carbonation. Very refreshing beer. Glad I tried it.

Extremelly orangy ipa, this one might have been a little old and didnt get a chance to be very hoppy. Light saison falvors are overwhelmed by heavier malts
