3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Day of the Living Ales 2009, GI Wrigleyville, Chicago. It poured a hazy yellow body without much head. It had a citrusy nose with some orchard fruit and yeast. Thin. Kind of fruity with some sweet pale malt. A bit too sweet to me, lacking the dry spiciness that I normally associate with a Saison.

My last Goose Island beer of the day. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Citrus hops, well balanced with the malt. Easy to drink, was a nice change of pace from a lot of the stronger beers. Refreshing.
