3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is hazy and light orange colored with a half inch of white head. Typical aromas of grass, citrus, yeast, light spice. The flavor offers some mint and herbal notes, with everything coming together nicely. Not upper tier, but an enjoyable beer nonetheless. Light bodied with a pleasant aftertaste. Pretty good.

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.

Taste is highly spicy, white pepper, clove, banana, straw, biscuit, and lemon peel with a lingering spicy finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Well-balanced, crisp, dry, and refreshing. Really well-crafted saison. Well-done.
