3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is a cloudy pale yellow with a creamy white foam cap. Aroma is peppery, grapefruit, apricots, with Belgian yeast esters of clove. Taste is a slightly tart citrus, white grape juice, and peppery saison yeast. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Finishes very dry with peppery spice and a vinous grape taste. Overall a really light, citrus forward and refreshing saison that doesn’t overpower with spice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, bottled on 11/6/2013. Pours slightly hazy straw gold with a huge fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruits and some dry vinous grape with some earthy yeast and perfumey malt.
The flavor is bready malts with tropical fruits, a little spicy funk and some grape. The finish has a decent amount of dry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, a very nice beer. I like tropical fruit from the nelson sauvin hops and what the grape must adds.
