3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant, malt-forward beer with a healthy amount of sweetness. Somewhat cloying amounts of honey and caramel. Snappy hops are refreshing, herbal and spicy. Subtle fruit notes of pear, apples and white grapes. Even though it’s on the sweet side, it is refreshing. Curiously, this beer seems more like a maibock than a saison.

Bottle. Pours an opaque golden yellow with small white head. Aroma of wheat and cloves. Flavor is wheaty with hints of banana and spices. Not what I was expecting from an autumn seasonal, but pretty good.

This poured a cloudy yellow colorw ith a white head. Aroma was medium spices and yeastyness, some light lemony fruit too. Flavor was fairly dry, mainly spice but bland too. Eh.

Bottle:   Straw colored, a little shade of orange thrown in, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing, very light carbonation.   Nose is of very dull floral and soft pale fruit.   Similar tongue, pale fruit, a little mealy, with this very dull floral background.   Not quite sure what to make of this one, is it a Saison?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, lingering mealiness and very soft pale fruit and dull floral notes.   Tiz okay, but doesn’t much remind me of Fall...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Cloves, light fruit aroma and flavors. I get the spices coming out very nice and the malts add to the flavor. Dry and crisp this was a very good Saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly spicy, lightly fruity sweet aromas. A little pepper, citrus, apple, herb notes. Pours hazy golden, great creamy head and awesome lace. The flavor is spicy up front with pepper, herbal notes, a touch of dust, a touch of fruit - apple and white grape, peppery with an herbal lingering spicy finish. Easy to drink, not overly assertive but well put together as usual.

Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured golden with a white head. Sweet, yeasty, with some spice and light vinous fruit characters. Wheat and vanilla with a balancing hop character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy light amber with a smallish head. Dry white wine, apple cider, and bread are indeed on the nose, over a muted hop presence. Good, crisp, fall flavor (sweet cider and toasted bread), but a dilute/watery mouthfeel. Hops come forward a little on the finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22. Pours a hazy medium gold with a surging, settling white head that sticks around for a decent amount of time. Nice eggy lace. Big funky wet leaves nose. A bit phenolic. Watery medium body with light carb. Toast, wet leaves, and some mild artichoke notes on the mid palate. Tangy finish.
