3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Congregation. Quick dissolving white head over a hazy yellow body that’s a bit light for saison and many rings of lacing. Aroma is rain-soaked earth and clover. Taste is salty with a sweet aftertaste and a short finish. This is a mild, fuller-bodied, great beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. Unclear, orange body with a dense, white head. Lacings. Sweetish aroma with tropical fruits on cans, a puke like touch and orange. Some spiced, peppery hints. Too sweet on the palate, pleasant carbonation though. Orange, some black pepper and tropical fruits. Sweet and fruity finish. A nice beer, but overall too sweet. 130817

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy, light gold with some eggshell head. The brewers told us they use the Dupont yeast strain. No surprise, smells just like Dupont, peppery, star fruit, malt. Flavor is sweet, pineapple, pear, white pepper. Dry chalky finish. Over estery and a bit unbalanced.

Cask at City Beer in SF. Pours cloudy yellow with a tiny white head. Elements of under-ripe Asian pear, orange, yeast, bread, and pepper. Refreshing and complex at the same time. I really liked this beer.

Pours a pale yellow color with a white head. A pretty nice aroma with a lot going on. Pepper, citrus peel, grass, and straw are all present. A light malt/grain sweetness, some yeast, a light floral note, and maybe some bubblegum. The flavor has a nice dry and earthy quality to it. Some pepper, lemon peel, orange, and other spices. Mild grain sweetness with a nice floral hop character.
