3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Hazy deep gold pour with a modest white head. Earthy saison yeast, summery countryside. Boiled grain and some woody funk. Melon and pear summer fruits. Quite dry. A bit of pepper. Buggy tang. Light body, nimble on the palate. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange-gold color with a medium thick frothy white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, fruit and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, fruit and grassy hops. The finish is fruity with an herbal hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of slight tartness, some pale and lightly caramel malts, light bitterness, and some light fruits. Flavor the same with a nice blend of it all. Average texture. A pretty cool beer, but could be more flavorful.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 2/7/14, Friday night RBWG Asheville, from a corked and caged 750mL bottle, thanks to Derek. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a massive white head that slowly recedes to thick, smooth lace. The nose is tart lemon with a ton of funk and spicy brett. The flavor is the same tart lemon up front, very dry, funky, and spicy. The body is light with nearly sparkling carbonation and a long tart, funky finish.

750 ml bottle shared at the RBWG roach motel tasting. Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a bone white head. Notes of wine grapes, lemon citrus, sweet and pale and bready malts, and some doughy funk. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, dry, tart mouthfeel. Really nice saison.
