4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Pleasant, comforting aroma of honey-lemon, coriander, lemongrass, orange peel, floral hops, and yeast, with a bit of molasses in the background. The mouthfeel is medium to light, with a wheaty feel to it and adequate effervescence that doesn’t get in the way. The taste is mellow and very refreshing, with the above-mentioned notes resulting in an excellent interplay of citrusy bitterness and herbal sweetness. I’ll be sure to revisit this brew.

9/30/2010. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Aromas of citrus, Belgian yeast, grass and hops. A little tart with yeast, spices and lemony flavors. Excellent!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour hazy blond with low white head. Aroma is of fruits (estery), slight garbage juice, citrus. Taste is of fruits, citrus, honey. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Good. I dont believe the bottle was in very good shape. Not an outstanding saison at all. Still enjoyable but was waiting for more...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Clear golden with a medium mostly lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeasty with orange/citrus, bubblegum and herbal notes. Taste is of slightly sweet and quite fruity (mostly citrus) along with floral notes and bubblegum again. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Well crafted, but not my favorite Saison. Maybe my bottle was too old or I just don’t like Sorachi Ace hops.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lemon and green tea aroma. Nice head size when pouring but does not last long leaving a small ring. Color is a yellow haze.Taste is dry with a medium bitterness that stays long in the back. Medium body with low carbonation. A long bitterness with a bad feeling. I like the aroma of the Sorachi Ace hop but not the taste of the bitterness. Ok beer but not enough for a second try. ;-(

Seeing this bottle gives me high expectations. Unfortunately, it doesn't meet these expectations.
"Thin" and "spineless". Quite dull.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. Lightly hazy golden body is very active and supports a quarter inch head on top. Nose is a pleasant mix of resin, toast, funky grape must, spun honey, dank green herb and citrus zest. Tastes of resin, lemongrass, menthol, citrus zest and honey. Light-medium body is nicely dry, but way too fizzy with carbonation. Nice for a white wine cooler, but a bit too much with the spritz and minty lemon to be a great saison.
