3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch #22 8.1% ABV. Sampled on 4/12/2013. This saison pours a light to medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Large to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy and floral with a definite sour apple aroma as well. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are spicy and floral. Lively carbonation. Spicy and floral, with a very definite sour apple flavor with some hop bite at the finish. Crisp, clean and dry. The fruit adds a interesting flavor component to this beer, although it gets kind of cider like as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and slightly tart.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Water Street Grille. Bright golden beer with a definitive herbal aspect, even maybe a coriander tilt. The snappy green apple appeal doesn’t make its presence known until the tart finish. Super light, super puckery. Quite nice for a sunny day. (#5533, 6/1/2014)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
