4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Batch 6 bottle from Davidsons Liquors Highlands Ranch, CO
When I open a Saison, this is what I expect to find after the pour. And Earthy hay qualities in the aroma with some lemon citrus and ever so slight spice funk tail.
The color and appearance what I expect golden yellow with good head and retention. From the carbonation, quite effervescent.
Light flavor filled with Brett and tart with touch of hops.
Cool & dry a great ale for complementing summertime heat.

12.7 oz bottle, batch 8. Misty golden brown with a lacy white head. Nose is yeast, vanilla, grass and light lemon zest. Creamy with a dull sparkle. Taste is lemon juice, bay leaf, vanilla yoghurt and sour pineapple. Classic but simple. Maybe i’m spoiled when it comes to saisons.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 bottle, batch 8. Not my favorite of the CS beers I’ve been lucky enough to try, but still a very enjoyable low ABV saison with brett, wood and cereal notes. I think hop notes were more present when I drank this fresher, and I remember liking it a bit more.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body under a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is bretty and beautiful with some light delicate spice, floral, oak, and funk notes. Smells exactly like what I’d want a beer like this to smell like. The flavor is super delicate and light with nice brett, floral, funky, and earthy notes that really show off what a subtle delicat Saison can be if you don’t over spice the hell out of it. Perfectly dry, with the oak hints toward the finish adding an additional light tannic note that makes it seem even drier. Light bodied and very thirst quenching on a hot and humid summer day. Excellent beer.

2013 bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw with a thin white head. Aroma is vinous, with grape skins and lemon. A little grainy with the barnyard funk. Taste is slightly tart and sour with a barely detectable sweetness. Orange and lemon with an earthy funk. Grape skin bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is very light and dry.
