650 ml. release #27, 7.9% abv. Hazy golden with a lasting film of cream. Aroma is spicy papaya, white grape must, funky wheat and bubblegum. First tastes of spicy tropical bubblegum, earthy vanilla and nutmeg. Later notes of white grape and peppery citrus zest. I get the tart green apple a little later and it sticks around along with the touches of white grape and pepper. Medium body has too-high carbonation but an excellent balance.

On tap at Beercraft. Gold with a white head. Aroma has a nice green apple candy character. Flavor is overbearing with spices, heavy coriander and nutmeg. Tastes like a flabby wit with apple juice and a dumptruck of spice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Pizza Luce. Translucent dark yellow with no head and very fine carbonation. Wheat, a little sour apple, lemon, funky yeast and wet grass. Taste is a really a mix of light malty sweetness, a tart lemon apple, and grassy bitterness. Body is lighter with a light stickiness broken up by the carbonation.

cereal, hay, citrus, cloudy, lightly bitter, light sweetness, medium sourness, light body, lively.
definitely cider tartness and very refreshingly sprite and dry on the tongue. green apple flavor balances well with hay-like malt and almost no bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 22oz bottle, pours a light hazy gold with a thin bubbly white head, aroma is of a little bit of barnyard and funk with a hint of tart apple, flavor has some horse blanket and funk at first with a little bit of fruit in the finish, was hoping for a little more sour bite but still pretty nice, not bad.

I had a bottle of Release #27, 7.9%
Nice, apple and saison yeast aroma.
darker color than a cider or lager -- a little more caramelly in the color than a traditional alcoholic apple cider.
Taste is very nice, dry and crisp with green apple flavor right on the front. Mouthfeel is very carbonated, and it helps as the flavor slides from raw green apple to traditional saison yeasts and maybe some coriander on the back end. Nice and light.
Shame I bought this in February, this has summer beer written all over it!
Definitely worth a second buy in my opinion, I love a good saison and green apple makes a much better compliment than I expected.
