3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found it boring and too bland. Not enough fiery ester business going on to be remniscient of great Belgian saisons. No trademark pepper and coriander in great quantities. Pours a hazy coppery gold with a thick soapy head. The nose is light and has light lemon and orange peel notes, a bit of spice and floral hop notes. Refreshing, well balanced and easy to drink just too boring for me.

A nice saison from Driftwood! Has the funky earthiness you’d expect along with coriander and a nice hoppy spiciness.

Pour is crystal clear golden with a thin head. Sweet apple and apricot aromas and Belgian yeast. Very subtle aromas. Taste is yeasty with a low to medium bitterness. Dry from the beginning to the end. There is a good amount of malts and a light balancing fruitiness. Mainly citrus and pear. Very smooth saison. Some peppery but decent spiciness. Medium carbonation.

Nice amber colour, clear. Funky smell, summery, grainy. Very nice mouthfeel, not the greatest aftertaste, kind of, muddled, hard to decipher. Good flavour up front, needs a bit of work.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden apricot pour with light white head. Aroma is citrus, fruity esters, and some light spice. Taste is light bitterness up front, lively carbonation with a hint of spice and citrus, dry finish with some lingering bitterness that tastes slightly off. It’s refreshing but lacking in the complexity department.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a fast dimishing head that subsides to leave you with only a small white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of pepper, fruits (citrusy) and quite noticeable sulfur. There is also a grain husk feel to it. Taste is completely dry with some fresh cereals flavors. There is an astringent grainy finish/aftertaste that I’m not really fond of. Body is light, carbonation high. Mouthfeel impression is that it is slightly lacking. Overall this is a slightly flawed saison, I’ve tasted worse but I’ve tasted a whole lot better too.
