3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Brilliant gold with a creamy, medium-sized white head. The aroma is fruity and sweet with prominent apricot and tangerine backed by frosting sweetness and a touch of oaky white wine. The flavor has a sweet candied pils malt thing going on with a touch of vinous character that manifests in alcohol and oak. Big orange fruitiness. Sweet and lightly syrupy in the finish, but light in body overall with lively carbonation. Somewhat interesting but too sweet and orange-dominated ovaral.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a nice white head and a citrus aroma. Thre is a yeasty light malt flavor featuring citrus and spice. The mouthfeel is at first smooth, but turns to carbonation. This brew has all the elements of a good Belgian-style saison and is a pleasure to drink.
