3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Hazy pale-straw yellow.. Looked milk-ish in complexion. Smallish white head which slowly receded but left little lacing.
S: Soft fruit character, orange, peach, banana. Lightly spiced. Subtle yeast.
T: Much like the nose with a bit more of the malt coming through. Again light yeast highlights a soft fruit palate. No real funk or farmhouse flavors.
M: Oddly refreshing. Perhaps its the low alcohol content combined with the soft fruits. Light, almost juicy weight. Clean finish.
O: An interesting saison-grisette... worth a try for sure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A yeasty fruity beer with a farmhouse character. Good Saison-ish beer.
How: Handbottle from my buddy dickinsonbeer. Thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a very small head with low retention
In long: Nose is moderately yeasty with notes of freshly baked bread and tropical fruits. Taste is bready, uncooked fruity dessert dough, oranges, phenols notes, pineapples, doughy yeast. Medium carbonation with a nice doughy body. Not super wild but there’s something very “farmhouse” about the whole thing. This beer could pass as a Saison. I really Bullfrog, they make original beer off the beaten path. Very inspired. Being inspired can be dangerous. Once inspiration stoke me. From behind. It left me for dead and the police did nothing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours a hazy golden color with minimal head and poor retention though the beer actually looks a bit lively. aroma has light wheatiness with a hint of leather, clove or some other spice...very mild. flavor is also very mild but does have a touch of funk and leather...also reminiscent of a mild wheat beer. mouthfeel is slightly watery and not as dry as i prefer a saison to be. overall its not horrible but i prefer a bolder saison.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capones, served in a shaker glass. Hazy gold with no head. The smell was tart and peppery with some wheat and citrus characteristics. The flavor was wheat, banana, dough, earth, and a slightly phenolic. Was pretty good though it feels like a little bottle conditioning would make it even better.
