4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle purchased at Mile High Wine and Spirits for $10.99. This was orange and looked like a saison to me. Smells spicy, pretty much spot on. The flavor is nice, pepper, citrus, reminds me of Saison Dupont but therein lies the problem. This beer costs a couple dollars more than dupont or Hennepin so it would be hard to justify buying this again when I want a saison. Overall, this was a great example of the style and I’d like to try the cherry version soon.

A very nice Saison. Nice golden color with a slight fizzy head. Fruity notes that were predominantly citrus. Palate was smooth and crisp. Tastes of subdued lemon and orange. Ginger was also present after it lingered in the mouth. There is a quick bitterness that makes the finish dry. Nice and refreshing.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head with extensive lacing, over a cloudy orange gold (SRM 5) body....nose is pear, apple, light spice, hints citrus, floral honey.....taste is light pear apple, light spice, hints of citrus, leading to a light pepper bite on the dry finish....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds tingle. This beer meets the style nicely with appropriate aromas, flavors, and dryness. The finish was right on. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7
