3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a rich copper orange color with a finger of sticky foam. Aromas are sweet apple, straw, earthy yeast and a touch of pepper. The palate is a bit round and under carbonated but the flavor is interesting. Ripe apple dominates with a background sweetness that helos carry the rustic yeasty profile in a more subtle way. Long honeyed finish, nice beer just not your traditional saison characteristics.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011 Cellar reserve... so aged 20 months... Pours deep gold into a tulip. White head with good retention craters and recedes leaving spider lacing. Caramel and yeast aromas. Medium bodied with sourdough and caramel upfront turning to an earthy bitterness in the lasting finish. Would love to try and fresher batch.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle $9.49, i thought twice about buying this and then gave in, ehh. Bright golden yellow in a wine glass, good head. Smells fruity and estery but not quite what I would expect from a Belgian saison. Taste was fruity and reminded me of Tank 7 without the dry hopping. Overall this was not spicy or dry enough for me and I wish I’d spent the money on a Dupont instead.

I’m defintie smells of sourdough bread and yeast. its look and feel are top notch. the beer its self has a flaw with strong flavors in the fornt while having a real lacking quality at the end due to the brewing water. its mildly spicy but not overbearing.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is very nice with bread like malt and yeast. The hops are assertive and grassy. There is a graininess to the aroma as well. The appearance is cloudy gold with a medium head. The taste is papery and astringent. The palate is typical of this style. Overall not to good.

Growler from Greenville Beer Exchange
A: Pours a cloudy gold copper with an awesome head. Retention is good as well
S: Grassy hops, candy sweetness, Belgian yeast (bubblegum, wintergreen), mild pale malts come through
T: Peaches, banana, orchard fruit. Hops give a little twangy touch to it, malts hold it all together
MF/O: Fizzly but thick and velvety feel, crisp clean finish of tart and sweet fruit
