3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I normally expect a beer that is named after the hop variety used to be, well, hoppy but that is not really the case here, which is fine by me but might leave some dissapointed. This is a moderately cloudy brew w/ a thick, fine-bubbled head. It’s got some light banana notes along w/ some cloves and baked bread in the nose. It’s got a nice creamy texture w/ medium carb. It’s rather dry and fairly flavorful, though it drinks lighter than its 7.5% alcohol would have you expect. This is a solid beer but if you are seeking hops, look elsewhere.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Winey and light sulfur aroma. Some hay. Taste is subtle in grapiness. Kind of bland actually. Not bad just not getting much hope in this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazy bright yellow color with a dense white head. Decent aroma of spice and some obvious grape flavors. Definitely dry. But, I was disappointed by the relative lack of depth and finish in this. On tap at brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy light golden with a thin foamy white head. Large funky saison esters with some melon rind and hay and a subtle white wine bite. Spicy and estery flavor with a punchy white wine tone and some oak and gentle saison Belgian bitterness and a bit of hay and lemon and wheat. Very complex saison. And tasty. And refreshing.
