22 oz bomber. Pours a beautiful hazy golden color, with a pearly white head. Some lacing. Aroma is yeasty banana and clove. Flavor is a pleasant combination of bread and fruit, with cidery notes. The palate is lively, with a nice finish. Overall a great seasonal offering from my favorite Seattle brewery.

On tap at the brewery. Amber with bubbly cream head. Light farmouse with some citrus and grapefruit, chardonnay, bit of spice, on the finish but tasty.

Growler fill from Maggie’s in Ferndale,WA. Has the saison spice character, though it’s a little mild. average carbonation, medium body, but overall a nice easy drinking beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is spicy dry floral notes with some fruit as well. Taste is crisp dry light malt with a yeasty; slightly sweet, peppery finish. Their description is spot on - I could see this appealing to a white wine drinker. Easy drinking, particularly for the abv. Interesting take on a fall seasonal, most breweries head in the opposite direction from this... nice changeup this time of year. Not sure the name suits this one well though... I think most people will anticipate something else entirely.

Off orange appearance. No head
Bit of citrus and lemon zest on the nose. Wheat and rye as well
Pretty sweet like lemon meringue on the tongue. Bitter bit fleeting with citrus and honey. Maybe a bit of cedar forward notes and floral hibiscus

Good saison. All the notes one expects are there. I'm surprised how European this tastes, but for the seemingly usual American lack of carbonation. Solid B.

Clear light orange pour some head. Aroma of yeasty bread; smells like a slightly funky summer ale . Tastes lemony, rye bread, sweet yeasty plying syrupy feel. Some yeasty sediment on the palate but not dry enough. Should’ve been a summer ale. Some noticeable stronger booze. I like this, it’s belgiany yeasty and tasty but it’s not very saisony.

Smells like lemon oil. A bit under carbonated. I get a little butter on this. Not my favorite.

(draught at the brewery) cloudy bright gold, very little white bubbles. Nose nose of white wine, alcohol, lavender, floral, grapes, juniper and blueberry. Taste of white wine, juniper, herbal, berries, bit buttery as well though it isn’t offensive. Vinous finish thats also herbal and berry like.
