4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 On draft at the Barrelworks – reviewed from notes (10 Nov 13). Aroma is surprisingly peach forward with some citrus and white grape must. Some BA saisons tend to be lemon forward but this has a nice tropical and stone fruit aroma to mix with the doughy, hay like yeast. There is a slight lactic quality as well. Pours pale hazy yellow with an insane huge cloud-like head. Took a few minutes to settle down before taking some sips. Taste is mellow lemon, grain, some must, white wine, peach, with light funk. Body is light with carbonation on the higher side. The aftertaste has some tannic quality. Overall a really nice wine/tropical saison with light funk and lighter sour quality. Impressive!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks. A lightly unclear orange to golden beer with a small, white head. Weak fruity aroma, pleasant, with some lemon and pale malts. The flavor is more interesting, but not much. Dry, with lemon some bitterness and pale malt notes. Lasting finish. Boring in a way, but sure refreshing and quenching. 130809

A juicy, delicious, complex, but incredibly drinkable beer. Peach and apricot character combine nicely with mild funk and grass, a little bit of oak, and some citrus zest. Somewhat dry.
