3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy deep golden with a white head. Nice yeast, pepper, a bit of bready malt with a bitter lemon. Semi sweet mid pallete with a dry finish. Everything is there you would want in a saison, just a bit too paired down to be a top saison.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like herbs, thyme, rosemary, dry cracker malt, lemon, grapefruit, citrus hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like thyme, rosemary, lavender, dry cracker malt, and light citrus hops.

A good saison. Slightly sweet and fruit-forward for the style. But, enjoyable. Would have again.

Not a bad saison. The interesting part is it has an aroma of a gose. Thin fading head. Flavor is typical saison yeast with very light sour. Good mouthfeel and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good saison. Pours an ugly yellow. Not as good as their sage, but well balanced. Smells and tastes basic. Not very memorable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doesn’t pull of the higher abv(for a saison) as good as Opal does, but that’s the beers only fault...a little tiny bit to sweet and heavy. But, the yeasty fruitiness and light floral hops are very pleasant and this is a good brew

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber of release 15. Big white head atop a clear straw beer. Good lacing. Great drinking beer. Not too funky or rustic....good toasty malt flavors, lots of Belgian spice, and a balance. Sweeter finish. Not very noteworthy as a saison, primarily due to sweetness, but good all around Belgian beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle. Release #15. 7.1 ABV. Cloudy yellow gold. Thick bubbly white head. Perfumy yeasty wheat malt aroma. Notes of bubblegum and lemon peel. Upfront, earthy wheat malt with hints of lemon, clove and hay. Very smooth and refreshing. There is that underlying funky barnyard touch that lingers throughout. Finish is slightly dry and peppery. Overall, very good and true to the Saison style.
