3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 aug 2012, bottle. Light yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is very fresh bread, lots of caramel malt, faintly spicy, some slight apple notes. Thin body and lightly fizzy. It has a farmhouse background, big malt, apple taste isn’t prominent but it is sweet and it must come from the apple cider background. Actually it isn’t bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a weak, thin cheddar orange with a nose of seltzery bread and light apple. Flavor is sugary bread, apple, and a touch cinammon. Not much going on here. Average mouthfeel. This beer should be awesome but it falls very short.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford, CT. My favorite aspect about this beer is its puffiness and pillowy texture as it drinks almost like a nitrogen-infused beer. Since they didn’t overdue the yeast and wheat, this pillowy texture prevents this beer from being too bready and overbearing. I like this beer, but I didn’t get many new notes from the exotic ingredients within this beer. To me, this is a solid beer, but not worth the pricetag.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Its a dry apple cider that tastes pretty boozy and has a detectable burn in the finish from peppers. Its not particularly what I’m interested in when I buy a beer.

Tempting aroma with a basic pour leads to a balanced taste and satisfying mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Le caractère du cidre se manifeste avec des courants de citronnelle et d’herbes fraîches. Assez complexe et rafraîchissant...Aucune trace d’alcool.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Introduces itself with a golden color, effervescent visual appeal, with bountiful carbonation rising to an airy, but firm head. The aroma is quite saison-like with fresh orchard fruit and spice. It drinks within that same general range ... just a bit of yeasty, gristiness ... add in some sweet, green apple, light cream. Good cross-over beer, exceptionally well made. (#4739, 8/18/2012)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a honeylike gold. Strong medium sweet apple presence along with a weird ointment like medicinal flavor. Interesting, but very heavy body so a little goes a long way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mostly clear straw-gold color with a moderate white head that lasts a long time. Aroma shares many things with US saisons, showing hay, grass, cheese, apples, sweaty socks, and maybe slight pepper and herbs but I might be imagining that. Flavor of hay, grass, dough, mushrooms, and white wine, with a hint of that sweaty socks thing still. Finishes on the funky side with a sweet yeasty doughy finishes and a slightly pepper aftertaste (more from hops than anything). Medium-heavy bodied with no noticeable alcohol presence. Good beer, but I wish I could taste the cilantro a bit better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a bright gold with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast as well as some herbal notes. Taste follows, some heat in the back from the peppers, no presence of the cider. This isn't a bad tasting wit but it's a disappointment for what they are saying it is.
