4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours clear golden, large white head that dissipates to a nice residual and good lacing. Aroma is citrus, dank, pot, grassy, passionfruit. Flavor is dry, light bitter, nice blend of dank tropical citrus hops with a peppery grassy saison yeast. Light body, good spritzy carbonation. This is a tasty beer; great product for 4%!

Poured from can to glass. Straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is pine, peppercorn, straw, earthy. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a earthy spicy finish. Overall this is a crushable can of saison.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can. It pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a fizzy, disappearing white head. The aroma is grassy and very lemony with some tangerine, peppery yeast and light bread. The flavor is the same. Bready, yeasty with lighter pepper notes and a big grassy, lemony hop character. The body is light and crisp but not watery. Bitterness is medium, but seems lower due to the strong yeast influence and dry-hopping. Pretty simple and rather brutish for the style, but I would buy sixers of this stuff if they were reasonably priced.

Smells like the most perfect Saison ever. The taste is almost great, but in the end feels a little forced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at Flat Tail. Clear light golden color. Aroma is citrus, pine, and a touch of yeast. Taste has a lot of citrus and pine hop flavors with some saison spice. Quite hoppy and easy-drinking, and an interesting hybrid of styles.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Dad’s Kitchen. Pours hazy gold with a slight, transient white head. Huge citrus, fruit, floral aroma. Amazing aroma. Med body. Flavor is rather phenolic, but fruity hop is detectable. Gets very earthy. Strongly flavored. Dry finish. Very strong statement.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of vegetables.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Ugh, wow...this is just a light APA that for some reason they decided to label a saison. Way overhopped (with the wrong aroma for a saison, too) and vegetal. Drain pour bad.
