4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Falling Rock Tap House. This has a nice lemon zest to it, along with a subtle funk. Flavor is somewhat tangy but more or less geared around the lemon/fruit/yeast.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy ginger notes with rustic malt and fruity zesty hops. Taste is a great mix between some rustic malt with quite dry aftertaste and some spicy ginger notes with some fruity and zesty hops. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer but I would have personally prefer less ginger.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, spicy yeast and light fruits, plus some pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. bottle. It pours a hazy burnt orange color with a massive, fluffy white head. Looks nice. The aroma is rich bready, and lightly floral with some lavender, pepper, some sweet peach, melon and citrus. The flavor is very fruity up front with passionfruit, orange, mango followed by lots of peppery and ginger spices before a bone dry finish. Very intense, but a real joy to drink.

Clean soft blonde pour with an off white head. Fruity aroma with some tropical notes and a bready/yeasty component. Citrusy notes and a peppery bready flavor. Light bodied with a soft carbonation and dry finish.

(old entry on my phone) On draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange pour. Tropical nose, malty and citrusy. Nice mouthfeel, funky, fruity and clear. Very nice!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Banana esters, hearty Brett, cloves, overly sweet. Minimally sour, kinda heavy on the yeast, not the most complex. Meh.

Almost reminds me of a Belgian blond or trippel more than a saison. Aroma of floral hops, light coriander. Pours golden clear with good head and lacing. Pepper and light lime as well. Finishes with faint sweetness. Nice package, just off for saison. Thanks to Sammy.

Lacy. Carbonation right there. Spicy with pepper, alcohol. The saison characteristics come out in the finish.
Some hops. Mild fruit aroma. Good drinkability. Bottle from Jason B.
