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.

Dry Apple taste with a nice spicy saison base beer. Tart and refreshing but borders almost on being a cider to me. Has a bit of a funky barnyard finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy straw into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves soap lacing. The nose is of Granny Smith apples and cider. Flavors are similar, of sour green apples, light grains and esters, and finish with a curt sourness and hay/grassiness. Substantive mouthfeel, but smooth and juicy to the palate. Easy quaff here, and a great sour apple (my favorite fruit) take on the traditional saison. Delicious!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very ginger aroma. Appears like very bubbly applejuice. Very juicy bright peachy ginger flavor, crisp, with a touch of hay bitterness. Small bubble fizz palate. A standout saison.

Tap. Bubbly. Not much head. Clearish dark gold. Apple cider nose. Nice spotty lacing. Very apple ciderish quality with very mild notes of ginger and cardamom and nutmeg.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like green apples, light yeast. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light yeast, green apple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Cindy and Alex. Snifter pour was murky wheat colored with a small white head. Aroma was slight apples with cinnamon. Smelled like an apple cobbler. Taste was some green apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Very dry all the way through. Light body, moderate carb. I thought it was alright.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lots of bubblegum in the aroma with cinnamon and other spices, not much apple though. Slightly murky, mid yellow body with a thin white ring. Flavor leans heavily towards the nutmeg, cinnamon with a touch of apple on the back side. Unusual for a saison, cant say that i care for it.

Not so much sour as just green apple tart. Delicate balance of numerous spices lingers in the background.
