3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 purchased at Greenville Beer Exchange - 6.3% abv, certified organic - pours a turbid orange - nose is medium sweet, with strong citric and tropical character, a bit of rustic muskiness, light phenolics, dust/basement - low carbonation makes the texture a little watery - soft mouthfeel - flavor is much less sweet than the nose - some citric sweetness starts things, but a moderate, prickly acidity cuts through the middle - this is followed by medium to high spiciness and phenolics - mild muskiness in a lightly rustic finish - overall, the flavor is dulled a bit due to the amount of yeast, but this shows a fair amount of promise - I’d be interested to see where this brewery goes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 1/24/15 from a bottle at Swilliams’ bonfire. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is vegetal with some yeast spice malty bread. The flavor is a touch sweet, lots of vegetal green notes, with light yeast spice and malty bread. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium vegetal spicy caramel finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg @ Freehouse. Hazy deep gold pour with a small head. Bright mandarin orange and pear fruit salad. Farmhouse yeast. Fresh-cut grass. Honeydew melon. The taste has a pretty earthy, rustic tobacco character. Dirty leaf pile. Lemon tangy. Farty yeast character. A bit of orange peel. Toasted grain. Medium body, soft carbonation. Sort of dissonant, but not bad.

Bottle shared by a local beer enthusiast. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have yeast, spices, some citrus and tropical fruit notes, dry malts, some earth to the finish. Decent enough.

Bottle. Poured hazy amber with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate yeasty citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a soft drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a 5oz sampler. There’s definitely a light, cheesy funk to this one, but that takes a back see to a very juicy, tropical citrus. It pours an oily golden orange color with a medium-thick white ring and a thin island of head floating in the middle. The lace is runny and a clean glass is left behind. The taste is a high-medium sweet with a light bitter. The slick texture has a light, near flat, carbonation with a medium full body. A funky umami and juicy tropical fruit finish the drink and a syrupy, sticky coating is left behind in the aftertaste.

Draught at Tbonz. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white head. Smells floral with some dry malty undertones. Tastes of dry malt, some spicy elements, earthy finish. Decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Pretty average for me, but not really my style. Pours a decent color- just on the dark side of copper/orange with no head. Nose is all fruit and spice. Carbonation is high and mouthfeel light. Taste is just too belgian for me- cannot get onboard with that yeast. Hops and malts can’t really compete with fruity esters. Just not for me. But good for the style. Had as part of a flight at the brewery.
2/24/2015 Better than I remember. On tap at Leon’s fine poultry and oysters. Had me a couple. Saison notes are nice- still a bit off in the finish. Something slightly metallic? And on the sweet side. But decent.
