3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a two centimetre tal off-white head. Aroma of grass, hay and very light hops. Light to Medium-bodied; Very noticeable yeast flavours with some corn, coriander seed, grass and hay, all with a touch of hops. Aftertaste is quite a bit pungent with the yeast by far the strongest, showing a touch of alcohol, fruits and even more light spices. Overall, a decent beer at best showing mostly saisony flavours with not a great balance nor depth - still okay to sample, but not worth trying to find this one - the hype/label is beyond enough. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Southern Season in Charleston, South Carolina for US$2,79 on 19-April-2015 sampled a day later in my hotel room here in Charleston, South Carolina on 20-April-2015.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose is floral, herbal, very dry yeast note, bread, slight funk. Taste is light funk leading to very dry herbal notes, green hop bitterness, slight lime rind, lots of pepperiness, and a hint of spice.
It’s a nice saison with a surprisingly bitter hop profile.

Bottle at home. I kind of avoiding drinking saison. Anyways, here I go. Floral and herbal, moderately sweet and very malty. Spicy pepper finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Visual amarelado um pouco turvo. Espuma branca de média duração. Aroma cítrico, champagne , transparece um pouco de álcool (7%). Sabor bem equilibrado entre doce e amargo. No aftertaste o amargor se intensifica e permanece por bastante tempo. Uma cerveja na média, nada de excepcional.
