4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Rehoboth brewpub. Pours a murky yellow color with an orange hue and fluffy white foam head. Aroma of earthiness and funk with a subtle but noticeable layer of strawberry. Has that foamy silky saison feel. Taste is of lemongrass with a smooth tartiness that flows right into the gentle strawberry finish. Really well done. Perfect to session on the back porch in the afternoon of a hot day. I initially would have called this a 3.7/3.8. But when going through each category it rates higher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at brewpub. Super cloudy, murkey orange color. Nice aroma of some strawberries, fruity but not in a girly drink (sweet) way. Taste follows the nose. Fruity strawberries, flowers, light banana, hay. This beer has a nice acidic taste, but it keeps its roots. Earthy and dry. Body is light, good amount of carbontion. Oveall: Another low alcohol brew that I enjoyed on a hot summer day

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A brewpub exclusive beer on draft at the Rehoboth pub. Sorry, I didn’t enter a commercial description when adding the beer. This saison poured a murky and cloudy color that resembled dirty water. The nose was a little on the fruity side, with some notes of yeast and carbonation. The body was smooth and drinkable with a funky mouthfeel. The flavors were funky and fruity as well, with some notes of yeast and bread. This was a hell of a lot different than any other saison I’ve tried. But then again, one would expect that coming from the brewers at Dogfish.
