3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, more available: Pours a cloudy orange, honey-ish amber hue. Perfect foamy off white head, mostly lasting, leaving sheets of rocky lace, very nice indeed. Grassy nose, citrus, hay, pear, apricot, honey, apple, ’sweat’, yeast aromas. Pleasant mouthfeel, nicely carbonated, light to medium body. Grainy, faintly sweaty, musty, dusty, earthen, herbal, grassy notes, dry, somewhat thin character. Interesting and enjoyable to say the least, yet not quite spectacular. I really enjoyed the winter though. Ill have to try them both again. Terd Ferguson, its your birthday.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Grassy, hay and stainless steel aroma. Golden body topped by a dense white head. Loads of suspended particulate. The flavor is not good. Metallic with an astringency that leave you thristing, so you dive back in hoping to make the unpleasantess go away but it just re-enforces the whole negative experience. Negtive feedback loop. Slimy body that only exacerbates things. Next please...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold. Huge, dense, creamy, frothy, white head. Nose is big musty yeast, malt, grains, crisp cedary hops. Smells like a mild saison. Flavor is lightly sweet malt up front, balanced in the middle, and a dry, clean, bitter hop finish. Musty yeast and grains underlying throughout. Medium/light body. Refreshingly carbonated. Dry aftertaste. More hoppy than your standard belgian. Great session brew, but a little pricey for that. Underrated at 3.1.
