3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Winking Lizard. The menu insinuated that this beer was brewed in celebration of the chainís 25th Anniversary. This beer is a hazy golden color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits and yeast. Light body with a sweet fruity character and notes of bready malt and yeast. The finish is citrusy with a lingering sweetness left behind. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Rehoboth brewpub. Poured a hazy, golden color - relatively light, small head. Aroma was citrus, with touches of mild spice. Flavor is a subtle citrus, with a good full pepper and fruit body. Good, but a bit forgettable when up against the rest of their typical lineup.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
OK, had this at the vintage estate on tap but it was called season ale and supposedly it was brewed for winking lizard. They said it simply said season ale on the keg, didnít see it myself. Clean and yellow. Thick head. Smell just like plain old good beer. Short intense what I perceive to be lemon or citrus shock to the tongue. Bitterness sets in after a few slugs. Maybe a little bandaid in there, I think. Yes, medium bitter finish. Quite unique, glad to have had the chance to taste this. overall decent beer, yes, one of a kind.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draft @ Winking Lizard Tavern - Peninsula OH) Cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Slightly fruity and citrusy aroma with some mild hop and spicy yeast hints under it. Flavor starts off bitter and grassy with some light fruit and spice coming at the back. A bit bitter on the aftertaste, almost a bit too much for a saison in my book.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Winking Lizard, Cleveland. Cloudy, orangey yellow with a giant, sturdy off white head. Pleasant saison aroma - vanilla cookies, cloves, sweet dried wheat, black pepper, banana esters and lemon peel. Big, pillowy mouthfeel with sharp carbonation. A touch of yeast in the finish underneath soft sour grains and lemon notes. My only dig is a slight raw grass in the lingering aftertaste that I didnít like. Otherwise, a solid offering.

Served on tap at the Lizard as part of Baby Shower. The appearance is a almost and amber brown with a white head. The flavor and aroma profile in this Saison is really nice. A lot of fruits, mango, cantaloupe, papaya, light hops, banana, spices. pepper. Very great summer profile. The mouth is nicely carbonated. A sparking juice. I really enjoyed this beer.
