[Draft @ CAH] Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pils malt, toasted malts, citrus, and toffee. Taste of citrus, light spice, toast, and a dry finish, but watery overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Headhouse. Pours a hazed dull yellow orange with a thinning white head. Aroma is spicy, phenolic, almost a cinnamon covered orange peel, grass, clove, fruity tangerine like saison yeast with some light doughy cracker and somewhat dirty unrefined yeast notes with a hint of sulfur from fermentation. Flavor is doughy cracker with slight burnt toast, grass, orange peel, tangerine, spicy earthy hops with leather and dirt mixed with orange citrus and slight lemon tang on the finish but still a bit messy and unrefined- the european hops don’t mix all that well with a fruity citrus yeast character. Very spicy and almost cardamon and mace like at times which hurt the drinkability a bit, but overall it was still not bad. Interesting just a bit messy.

Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of Belgian yeast, coriander, and pale malt. Poured yellow in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, Belgian yeast, and coriander. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Belgian yeast, noble hops, and coriander finish is dry.

Hazy golden pour light white head ... aroma of belgian fruity yeast and floral hops ..... tastes of fruity saison yeast and a dry earthy floral hop and a lemony zest ... pretty bitter mouthfeel with a bitter hop finish ... not bad if you want more of a floral hop and dry saison

Tap at Craft Ale House. Pours a hazy yellow with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of some spicy and fruity Saison yeast notes, light bread and hints of European hops. Flavor of the same, but just kind of thin and not all that exciting.

Hazy orange-yellow pour, lots of carbonation and lacing. At first I felt it was really bitter in a way that I felt took away from some of the flavors. As I went along I got more of the fruity notes, spice and malt.

Draught at Eulogy in Philly. Very unimpressive saison. Light. Some spice. Weak body. Not much of a saison. Tasted more like a mediocre Belgian Blonde.
