3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Black. Initially a dose of smoky roasted malts, some darker chocolate. After that, the familiar saison aromas of wheat and yeast come through. Body is med light, some sourness, not much. Saisony wheat, yeasty notes. Not that much of the darkness in the flavour (probably good so). Interesting experiment. I liking the nose more and more now.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clean mahogany colour with a short lived off white head. The aroma is a bit of spice, some musk, lemon, smoke if your really try and smell it. The flavour is pretty much everything the aroma says its going to be, ends on a sort of bitter/sour note. I’m not to familiar with saisons, but I don’t get the sense that this is really anything ground breaking. Solid brew though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, Guinness like but much better taste. Drank on a lake, out of the bottle just before landing a 17 inch trout. So it for sure was a great setting.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A: Pours thin with little head. Otherwise a little darker in color...
S: Like a watered down saison. A bit of spice but very light.
T: Its pretty gross. There is little smoke to it... super light. Offputting bitterness. Sasion charachter is dull. Super sour, also hops are dull.
P: Very acidic on the palate. Flat.
Overall this beer is pretty terrible. I had poured it my bag to do a beerinade but I made the mistake of not tasting it first. It was so offputting I dumped out my marinade and remade it as not to ruin the steaks. (Also if you are looking for a good beerinade use Curmudions old ale from Founders.... soooo good)
This beer is a poor showing in style as well as just an average beer.
