3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Date tasted: July 18, 2013 ... Glassware: Kisatsky Tavern pint... Occasion: settling in for 90+ degree day number five and enjoying Evil genius beer number three....Appearance: hazy iced-tea-colored body, orange-brown and thinly drawn head; a bit like a fake tan?... Aroma: definite spruce cone scents, with some ... Palate: medium-bodied and crunchy at the teeth; otherwise, not a smooth drink but not annoying...Taste: wow--bitter hops greet the mouth with a crunch; the wheat seems to be swirling a confused, middling bubblegum stretch; odd aftertaste of vegetable (?!) banana comes late, but is welcome... Overall: of the three in this six-pack sampler, this hits best, with a definite agenda and a positive outcome; sometimes the tap lures us to the bottle and the bottle doesn’t reward, much like the first full-length LP from the opening band you were surprisingly moved toward; I enjoyed this nonetheless....

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle BORN ON 2014-04-10. Nose is lemony, touch of vanilla, strong citrus hops, wheat, soft and a good blend of styles. Coriander? Definite spice. Some good fruit rind and caramel, very light wood from the hops.Pours very bold, rich golden with a soapy beige head. Crisp and very spicy body, sweet but smooth and not overdone, some wheat, soft with light malt and sweet, very fresh hops. Faint tartness and bitterness. Clean and does a better job than most at bridging the gap.

Hazy golden colored body, medium sized white head and spotty lacing. Lemon, orange zest, light grainy cereals, pepper, yeast spice. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation, semi-dry finish, a tad muddled with mild bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Coriander and wheat aromas. Dry with sweet coriander and grass upfront turning to bitter seed in the lasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that had decent retention. The nose is fruity and nicely hoppy with a light pale malt base. The bitterness is fairly restrained, with some nice floral notes. Lightly bready malt base that finishes very clean with some light bitterness. Light bodied and rather refreshing with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice APA, a big improvement over their other offering that I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan body. Creamy, steady white head. Big Belgian yeast aroma. Fruity Belgian yeast flavors, some wheat, some barnyard sour. This is a pretty good Saison. Funky with a mellow peppery edge, but a strong pungent tropical fruit base. Pretty interesting beer, mislabeled.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little bit of tartness, underlying malt, yeast, then a very full body with a strong hops touch. Not very bitter, but punchy enough.
