3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse. Pours a clear golden straw color, lots of head. Aroma is slightly funky, maybe a bit of barnyard, mustiness, very subtle. Body is very slight, belies the ABV of the beer itself. Lively, yes, warming, no. Finish is sweet, sugary. Would’ve liked a bit more spice and malt. WAY more ABV than style guidelines might dictate, but this is really an exceptional beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Apex, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dry rustic qualities and some funk. Flavour of rustic notes, Belgian yeast and a bit of candied sugar. Not authentic in any way – very US-tasting. Still, very drinkable and flavourful enough – just not my type of saison.
