2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hop-pocked head rests atop a lightly bronzed body. Nice peppery nose with restrained Belgian phenols present. However, those clovey phenols are much more assertive in the body. Very tannic, powdered clove twangyness is hard to shake.

this was a nice saison. It was pretty sweet, had a good body, bit of a sweet fruity aroma, a good drinking beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, Bube’s. Pours a very murky, orangish-brown color; headless, even with some effort (being served in a plastic glass can’t help). Chewy bananas, oranges, and spice in the aroma; fruity overall, with a slight dustiness. Medium-to-full, chewy mouthfeel: pretty sticky and sweet for what I’d like to see from a saison; plenty of esters (banana, mostly) and Belgian sugar, with a mild spice presence; some vanilla and dough at mid-palate. Like the initial look, this is a bit unrefined right now, though generous. Lengthy, bready and Belgian sugar finish; slightly dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with little to no head. Aroma of fruits and spices, banana, Belgian Saison yeast and a candy sweetness. Flavors of the same...well done Saison.
