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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma’s the best thing here with traditional saison characteristic and only a hint of the band aids to come. Flavor, on the other hand, isn’t so good. I can pick up the saison, but the apple corrupts it and creates the band aid- blech. Body is a touch on the thin side. Thankfully, the finish isn’t long.

Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of fruit, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights...nice brett finish.

Release#64 abv 7.1%...This is somewhat tart - not sour, but a good balance between sweet - tart - spice - fruit. Refreshing and easy drinking...fairly reminiscent of apple cider.
