3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Volo. Hoppy saison, with the hops not overpowering but the showcase. Cascade orange citrus taste smooth and prevalent above all. gentle bitterness, this beer can pass as an American pale. Very smooth medium mouthfeel. Decent drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange color with a white head. Interesting nose for a saison, much more on the fruity side. Lots of citrus peel, banana, and tropical notes, particularly passionfruit. A touch of straw and perfume with very light spice. The flavor is lightly sweet and also a bit acidic. Some lemon peel, green apple skin, a mild spiciness, some banana sweetness. Light cracker maltiness and some straw and grass on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Has a hazy amber colour with a medium frothy and light beige head. Fruity and grainy aromas of apricot, hay, herbs, almond and some hops. The flavour is more fruitier with sweet berries, and leather, wood, resin and grassy hops. Slick mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A great beer, and a bit fruitier than the average saison.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours a hazy, deep orange with one ring of fizzy white head. Nose is big, floral, herbal, lavender, orange zest, yeast, maybe a little brett C. Flavor is pungent, orange pith, flower petals, bitter greens, some melon, light malt, herbs. Tons of citrus pith in the flavor but not overly tart. Full bodied but dry, herbal finish. Good, but it could perhaps have been toned down a little.
