Growler from dcschiller
Pours a crystal clear deep gold with a fluffy eggshell head. Aroma is malty sweet with subtle spicy overtones. Flavor is much the same with a slight tartness to it, with a light & clean herbal/spicy finish.
Overall it was very tasty, and incredibly drinkable. Another gem from Fate

Growler (thanks to JPDurden24 for the pickup). Somewhat muted aroma of banana esters and subdued peppery spices. Pours a light, effervescent golden color. Light cinnamon and coriander notes mix with a slight, woody bitter flavor. Pear and apple emerge toward the finish. Easy-drinking saison.

Poured up on tap at the brewpub with a crystal clear gold body that supports a nice nearly bright white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up slivers of yeasty saison spices, soft and mild citrusy hops with a faint sweet smell in the background. The taste is right on the money in this Phoenix heat with crisp snappy and rich spicy yeast notes, smooth malt sweetened tangelo and grapefruit and then just a bit of hay or sort of grainy maltiness there for support. Terrific summer brew. It ends crisp fairly dry and demanding another sip.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured hazy dark golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, spice and sour fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex lemon spice sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex beer.

Fresh growler from Fate! Cloudy 14 karat pour with a small eggshell head that diminishes to a ring. Extremely fragrant with bright citrus, grapefruit pith, lemon grass, and orange peel along with some evergreen, bready yeast, peppery spice, and coriander. Flavor is much more muted and subtle. Freshly-baked biscuit, lemon drop, light tangerine, and honey. Refreshing. Another incredible summer beer!
