3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy lemon straw pour which is a little underwhelming. However fresh and vibrant on the palate and what I do like is the dryness on the finish that just lingers.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was a really underwhelming saisson. The appearance was pale yellow and rather clear, suggesting this may be filtered. The aroma is quite like West Coast pale ale more than a saisson. There is too much hop and not enough spice and the body is too thin to support this dynamic.

Tap at Bentleys. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a light white head. Aroma is cold. I'll come back. Flavor is zesty, spicy lemon, citrus, pepper and funk. Finishes slight. Aroma is now a light sweet funk with zesty notes. Easy.
