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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle at Schouskjelleren, Oslo (shared by Cunningham - thanks!). Slightly hazy golden with a lasting, white head. Deliciously fruity, yeasty aroma with the nice Belgian fruitiness and light spicyness. Moderate sweet with a rather dry, slightly sour bitterness. Surprisingly pleasant, and quite refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Lots of orange and citrus with a pepper note. Pour is a cloudy orange color with minimal head. Taste is slightly phenolic with a touch of band aid. Ok but but not grate.
