3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
765ml? bottle. Light golden pour with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a bit of lace. Fairly funky nose with some apple notes and a certain white wine quality. On the palate there’s an interesting slice note with a more notable wine character. The funk is a little less pronounced and the finish lasts quite a while.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up from Ralphs in Studio City, CA. I am enjoying my last beer for a few months as I start winter triathlon training, so I am very happy I picked this guy up today.
Pours a murky golden hue with a medium white head that is mostly diminishing. Lively carbonation as well.
Aroma is yeasty with lots of hints of barn yard. I smell some banana and ginger in there as well. Smells like its going to be one refreshing brew!
Aroma is yeasty, with a slight tart beginning that fades to spicy middle and end.
Light mouthfeel with lively carbonation

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Best Saison I have had to date. Big, bold and wonderful notes fo apple, white grapes, lemon, yeast, wheat, floral hops and clean basement. Light and hazy piss yellow with a sexy white topper following the action downward. Tart, lightly funked, bitter up front and sweet but not cloying on the back end. A curious spiciness lingers inviting more suckling upon this mid carbonated and very lightly oily temptress.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a light hazy straw with massive frothy white head. Aroma is giant musty old basement, vinegar, citrus and herbs. Tastes of herbs, candy, orange peel, lemon, and a bit vinous. Has a medium chewy body with low carbonation and a little tart that leaves a refreshing bitterness near the end. Very good lacing and very easy to drink. A real pleasure.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of raspberry, yeast, citrusy and grassy. Pours as a clear gold liquid with a thick white head.
Tastes bright, bitter, straw like, pear. Lacks the funk that is usually associated with this style. Light body, high carbonation dry finish.
A well executed ale, likely has more in common with champagne than beer, but is very enjoyable. Although it is well executed, it is lacking the funk and fringe flavour that I love with this style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"a nice little saison, though it’ll be hard to go back to, given the premium price. a little too funky outta the bottle, but the aroma got better once it was poured. still some barnyard, but not overpowering. just a touch of the orange peel in the aroma and flavor. more earthy/grassy and peppery. would make a very nice summer brew in six-pack form, but not for $8-9 per bottle."
