3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Four pack from Wines & More in Milford CT. Poured into a tulip glass. A grassy light honey color. White head that fades to a thin lace. Herbal-citrus aromas. Flavor is very yeast. Dry profile, and pretty much one dimensional, but otherwise fairly tasty and drinkable. Lingering dry-bitter-yeasty finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a version of this style that would have me becoming more a fan of the style. Aroma is citrus, yeast. Taste is lemon, slightly roasted grain and followed by a nice, mild hops bitterness and a little bit of booze - just a tiny bit. Palate is very satisfying, not too carbonated, just right. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of orange and yeast. The taste is very similar. Very light on any alcohol burn, and the orange and yeast are very prevalent. Very tasty brew, highly recommended. 7% alcohol.

A great saison. Pours a hazy lemon color. Aromas of bread, lemon, and dust. Flavors are bright and citrusy with a nice hoppy finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 12 oz bottle in tulip glass. Pour is slightly hazy yellow with a thin but persisting head. Herbal aromas with strong ¸farmhouse yeasts. Lots of citrus and some grains. Taste is relatively bitter and the bitterness stays for a long time. A strong alcoholic touch for a beer with 7 %. Strong belgian yeasts. Floral hops. Very refreshing, but quite heavy for a Farmhouse Ale.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Massive, puffy white head. Intense carbonation. Cloudy pineapple yellow color. As it dies down, an absolute sheet of thick, white lace protects the rim of the glass: possibly the most incredible lacing I’ve ever seen.
Aroma is soapy, with touches of lemon and floor cleaner. A little horseblanket touch, but not overwhelming.
The flavor is musty, with more of that Lemon Pledge flavor. (Not that I have a true basis for comparison here.) There is a leafy component, with some hay and maybe a touch of grape nuts? The finishing touch is a slight citrus/tangerine accent.
The feel is creamy and smooth. This is a really enjoyable beer; full of flavor but middle of the road enough that you could pass it around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Full body, with a hazy golden color. Malt sweetness offset by multidimensional Belgium yeast. Heavy for a saison, but very enjoyable.

Hazy golden color with a big thick white head. Nice aroma with yeast, citric and some spices. Medium body. Fine mix between sweetness and bitterness. Really fresh and easy drinkable. Soft to average carbonation. Balanced smooth and fresh flavor. Yeast, citrus, mild fruity and some spices. Lovely ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from growler. The beer is a slightly hazy golden color with a thick and fluffy white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with a funky yeast character and flavors of pithy citrus, toasted malt and earthy hops. The finish is fruity up front with an herbal yeast and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
