2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light golden pour with a white head that quickly disappears. Bad aroma...almost like a moldy dish rag. However, taste is much better. Peppery and spicy taste with the sour from the apple coming through. Nice and tart with a dry finish.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Are these guys jokin or wat? This is horrendous. Pours a cloudy white orange with a white head, but that’s where the mediocrity stops. The aroma is enough to kill a small animal. Putrid combo of spices, artificial thanksgiving, old people’s sweat, disease. Taste is similar - obnoxious chemicals mixed with spices to try and conceal the deadly toxins found in this dumpster sauce. This is world class bad. Finishes on a lingering note of formaldehyde and various fluids extracted from an embalmed corpse. No.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clearish golden with a thin white head. Nose is a little sour but with a grainy blonde cereal and oak tone. Flavor is the same, with a little less apple and a little more tangy saison. Fruity tones that aren’t quite apple, and not much sourness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
651 ml. bottle. Release #25, 8.2 % ABV. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled white head with extensive lacing, over a clear yellow (SRM 5) body.....nose is light sour apple, cereal, lemon, a melange of spices, minimal hop notes.....taste is a light almost Brett like sourness, apple, slight sweetness, multiple light spices (ginger, cardamom, cinnamon), hints of citrus, leading to a dry spice-hop lingering bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, light alcohol warmth, carbonation adds light spritz, and moderate acid finish. While this is a reasonably balanced beer, with the spices under vague control, there are so many they become muddled. The result is a hodgepodge. Also both the Oats and Wheat are lost in the mouth feel. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6

Poured from a 22oz bottle. Pours golden. Acidic. Earthy. Yeasty. Like rotten vegetables. Very sweet and a little tart apple on the back end. The aroma is just terrible but the beer itself is rather good. Interesting but something just smells terrible.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer has a very clear straw color to it, very little head to the pour and almost no lacing. The beer hits you with a heavy spicey scent instantly, corriander, nutmeg, mild lemon zest and a hint of sour apple on the back end. The taste is decent with a decent blend of spices and bitter apple. The mouthfeel is okay with some crispness to it, spicey and mildly bitter. Overall, this beer was a different twist to a saison but nothing overly special.

Sampled at a recent tasting. This one was a little too dry for my liking, especially on a saison. The aroma reminded me of apple bubble gum, which I don’t really care for. Decent but nothing great.
