4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Freakin’ Frog. Roasted corn color with a foamy 1 1/2 finger white head. Solid lacing. Vinious fragrance reminiscent of a Pinot Grigio with a sweet yeasty backdrop. Taste is spicy -- pink peppercorn, allspice, and mild cinnamon. Slightly sweet malt hits next and is immediately kept in check by fragrant Euro bittering hops. The hop oils coat the back of the mouth and throat leaving a paradoxically bitter reminder of how good this beer is. The sweetness is remembered on the tip of the tongue. Exceptionally balanced and full in the mouth for the style. A beauty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Cloudy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Definitely thought it was a Belgian ale rather than a saison. Fruity and spicy yeast aroma with lots of sweetness. Sweet flavor with spicy Belgian yeast notes. Clean finish.

Draft at Beer Temple. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is orange peel, brett and some spices. Taste is more spicy than the aroma with some brett, saison funk and a dry medium bitter finish. Medium body and soft to medium carbo. Nice stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Blue Monk. Pours hazy orange/gold with thick, frothy white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, spice, floral and citrus hops, bread malts and light coriander. Flavor is light fruit esters forward with supporting sweet malts and light grassy hops with some spice and herbs with lightly bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Made Bob and Steve try some of this. They were not thrilled. Just tried because of the name.
