3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. Hazy golden body. Big fizzy white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of spice, toasted grain, citrus with hints of lemon, clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Spicy tastes of pepper, coriander, citrus and earthy herbs. Hints of woodiness and mango. Dry finish with a bit of lingering tanginess. Complex, but just a tad sweet. By the second glass, it turned a bit chalky, but these are minor annoyances. This is an interesting beer.

Sampled from bottle Round balanced aromas of lemon zest, soraci ace hops and cream. Taste is light with some yeast and esters dominating the taste. Refreshing! What a shame it’s so costly...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light, bright gold with big white head. Aroma is clove, spice and yeast. Big, bready Belgian aroma without the tasts. Flavor is fruity, tropical with just enough sweet maltiness to balance it out and a slightly dry mild hop bitterness. I am impressed, and saison’s continue to grow on me lately. Nice warm weather beer that pairs well with summer food.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours cloudy golden/orange with a large white head. Aroma is funky, like a dirty wet dog, with wheat, yeast, clove, and coriander. Taste is sweet with fruits and spice, yeasty barnyard funk, something in the taste is like licking a dirty metal tractor. Not bad but a few things I find really off putting here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared, and poured, by atom. Hazy golden straw yellow color with a huge white head (thanks asshole!). Aroma is bubble gum, orange, coriander, and maybe a hint of lemon. Taste has a touch of lemon, orange, wheat sweetness, some spice, and a grassy crisp finish. Lighter bodied, and easy to drink. Really solid saison, with a slight twist with the use of the sorachi ace hops. Great summer time drink.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) The aroma comes up aces dominated by the Sorachi hop with floral qualities. A thick fluffy-white head covers the cloudy orange-gold complexion. The flavor is a less traditional Saison style, with unique Sorachi hops, lemon peal, Belgian malts and some spices. Mouthfeel is sharp from natural carbonation in bottle conditioning. Keg_Juggler made a good bet in this gamble to make up some ground up in pursuit of the Weiss Cup.

Great golden cloudy body with a big white foamy head. Great strong hoppyaroma that’s a bit sweet. The taste has wheat and very enjoyable. This is one I can have a few of.
