3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral and lightly bitter hop aroma with medium fruity sweetness and a bit o’ funk but not much. Easy for a saison. Fruits, sweet, almost candylike sweetness but not overpowering, real faint, floral, light hop presence. Some yeast to really finish it out. A bit sweeter than I’m used to in a saison but real nice, I thought.
