3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with a short, short-lived off-white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: Belgian yeast, citrus, light banana, mild green apple. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild black pepper, very mild tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lightly funky dry finish. (3/5)
Admittedly I went into this with high hopes, but it didn’t quite deliver. At least, not to the same extent that their IPA’s do. Pleasantly mild black pepper spiciness dovetails nicely with mildly tart and funky fruit. Good, but not great. (14/20)

Banana aroma with subtle malt and spice. White head that dissipates quickly. Yeast, malt and subtle fruit favors. The pallet is light with a spicy finish.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
