3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz. bottle from Old Town. Aroma: Moderately musty lemon pepper; dried wildflowers; slight gum. Appearance: Hazy, unfiltered deep caramel gold with a foamy, towering white head that settles into a sticky skin. Flavor: More gummy/floral up front than the nose would suggest; more musty/peppery towards the finish, which dries up completely and is bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A superior beer and worth a try for any beer lover.

Restrained funky floral aroma in a golden pour. Lovely dry hop malt balance and lower than usual strength makes this an excellent example of the style - and one I might prefer to the benchmark (DuPont). Very tasty.

Nice. Deep yellow with just the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is fresh with malts, yeast and resinous bitter hops. Most saisons have some citrus and spice. Not on this one but it is well brewed and very tasty.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Beer Boutique.
A really great refreshing saison beer. Light gold with a little haze from the sediment. Strong hop bitterness, much more so than is normal for the style. A reasonable amount of hop aroma too, again more than it think is usual for the style. The yeast character, whilst very present was not overpowering and tasted clean rather than funky.
I don’t drink a lot of Saison but I could really imagine sinking a few of these on a hot day.

Pours golden with bubbling head. Aroma is old socks, vinegar, cheese, light mud, some fruits. Taste is sharp, bitter, spicy, old socks, rotten sewerage, dishwasher water. Not so good as I hoped.
