3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Tropical fruits, hoppy, yeasty.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white frothy head.
T- Slightly bitter, bready, tropical fruits, mango, peach, caramel, subtle funk, spices.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium high carbonation, smooth finish.
O- A lot different than I expected. There is bitterness that I didn’t expect but wasn’t necessarily bad. I was expecting this to be a fruitier version of their flagship Saison. I was quite wrong. This resembles that beer in no ways. I was hoping for a Saison that was full of juicy fruit notes, but this was more like a White IPA. Not bad, but not really what I wanted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful clear straw yellow until the settled yeast is added to the glass and fills it with a nice haze. Firm white head that retains itself for quite some time. Aroma’s are tropical with pineapple mango and bready notes as well. Smells bright and sunny. Flavors are good sweetness upfront followed by a rustic dryness. Mouthfeel is rich and rounded at first then grainy dry with some spiciness on the finish. Good balance and big flavors on this imperial saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden, lightly cloudy, and very fizzy. It definitely has a tropical fruit smell so the name is fitting. Aroma of honey, pineapple, grapefruit, and grass. Interesting flavor that is hard to pin down. Sweet, lightly fruity, with some all spice. Aftertaste similar to that of grapefruit. Complex and very enjoyable.
