3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appealing aroma of barnyard funkiness combined with touches of spice and citrus. Pours a light yellow with a white head which quickly dies and leaves no lacing. The taste is a bit of bubble gum, orange citrus, peppery spice with grainy finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a very tasty and enjoyable Saison. Would drink again.

Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Really nice lacing. Aroma has some barnyard, dust, lemon, and grass. Taste has lemon, pepper, a bit of funk, and a nice tartness to it. Dry finish. Very soft on the palate. Really nice saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Poured a hazy straw yellow with two fingers of white bubbly head that leaves behind good lacing. Aroma is subtle but complex with some lemon, cracker malt, light fruit sweetness and a bit of barnyard. Taste has the same subtle complexities. Lemon, orange and light fruit flavors with the cracker malt followed by white pepper and an earthiness or leathery component. Just a hint of tartness and funk in the finish. Flavors are all wonderfully light and balanced, with nothing overpowering. Starts off with some sweetness but ends up being fairly dry with a medium mouthfeel. Very nice and drinkable cross between a Belgian pale and a saison. Really enjoyed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Yeast, esters, apples, and light sugary nose. Very pale straw, thin fine white head. Light tangy fruit initial, with apples and pears / settles into an even lighter fruit mid, with a little bitternes / finish is mild, with some lingering fruit and a sense of balance. Thin-medium body. Pleasant. Nothing really special here. Kind of a Belgian lite.

This is a hazy yellow beer with a lot of banana and gum. Reminds me of a hefe plus a little spritzy bite. The aroma is earthy.
