3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark yellow. Light white head. Aroma is a little sour, vanilla, and mild funkiness. Flavour is smooth, wheat, slighty chalky, a little sour with hints of wildflower. Tasty and smooth. Elegant for style compared to many.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I typically shy away from American saisons as I believe it’s one style we haven’t nailed down yet. This beer proves me wrong. Delicious beer. Aroma was spicy with light malt, orange peel and grass. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a two finger white head. Taste was light and delicious. Melon, orange and notes of grass with a slight graininess. Very refreshing. Mild carbonation which was disappointing compared to others in the style

Bomber into a tulip glass. pours a light straw yellow, with a huge white head that lingers, leaving good lacing. Nose is tart citrus. Taste is tart, dry citrus with a hint of pepper and spice. Very refreshing. Medium length finish, with high carbonation. In the style of Belgian saisons, and this is a good one.

Can this be better than the Watemellon Boxer we just started the night with........ only time will tell. Piss gold body with just a thin film floating on top. Lemon grass, zesty, hay.................... sweetness, honey. Taste and aroma are close to the same. This is so drinkable, so very drinkable. Lemon, tangerine, grass, and an acitic finish. Hit gingerale, yes ginger. Yes this beer is better then Watermellon Boxer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Wrigleyfield Goose Island. It is a very pale straw gold with a foamy eggshell white head. The aroma is of white pepper and citrus with funky saison notes that are reminiscent of sweat socks but still somehow remains very light and appetizing. A light zesty body compliments the peppery, green, citrusy saison flavor well. Really nice for summer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
765ml brown bottle. Bottled 25 Jun 14. Pale lemony yellow pour with some haze. White cap that fades into a thin swirl, minimal lacing. Interesting nose, some fruity apple notes, spice/pepper, citrus. Taste has some fruity notes, grass, spice, citrus, trace of sourness sneaking in. Orange peel lingers a bit as well as that fruitiness from before and a good hit of yeast. Good carbonation. Enjoyable, a bit sweeter than expected.
