3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Light straw color, with a medium, rocky, off-white head and good lacing. Great aroma of honeysuckle, resin, lemon zest, coriander, and some pollen and floral funk. Sweet up front, with a nice, pretty aggressive bitterness through the finish. Medium body, lively, and a little astringent. Overall, this is a very hoppy saison, but it is not lacking in the farmhouse appeal. Nicely balanced and very delicious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours almost clear greenish yellow with medium, radiply diminishing white head. Aroma is dill, lemon, solvent, grass, herbs, dough and bit of barnyard. Medium malty, medium bitter, medium sour. Good medium long aftertaste with some tartness, slightly astringent. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Not my favorite saison, but different.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE Jul 17, from Alko, 20150927) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, spiciness, coconut and perfume. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, perfume, sweetness, coconut, malts, spiciness and bitterness. Aftertaste had fruitiness, pear and bitterness. A brew using hops I dislike. Fortunately the yeast used hid the most horrid features of that hops and left decently drinkable brew.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Standard longneck, snappy label. Misty blonde. Aroma was at first very sensuous -- biotic, yeasty, pronounced fruity esters. After sitting a bit, it turns ketonic pineapple. My first impression of the flavor was that of minerality followed by cheap perfume spilled on vinyl furniture covers. Medium body. Think I just don?t like the primary hop. It was a chore to drink. Sorry for dogging you out, Brooklyn. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (thanks mjs). Cloudy amber color. Huge size, fluffy white head, stays. Sour, orange peel, grainy, faint coconut, sweetish in aroma. Grainy, orange juice, citrus, sweet, aromatic coconut, pear, fruity in taste. Fruity orange peel and straw in aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. To be honest quite refreshing. Doesn’t say 7.6%. Pleasant brew.

750ml bottle - thanks mjs!
Pale orange, large frothy head. Eww coconut aroma. Some perfume. Tastes like a tart’s handkerchief. Gets way worse as it warms, gets oilier and oilier with coconut oil. Carbonation high, quite fizzy. Apple finish, even some pear. More pear later. Would probably have been OK without the sorachi ace, but then it would have been a different beer.

.golden, light hazy. Meadowy aromatic nose, some citrus, buttery dilly herbs, golden honey belgy yeast. Med full bodied, soft, sweet. Golden malty. Tart oranges. A very full malty, fruity saison. Like the sorachi dill, makes me want to drop a lemon in it.
