5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Quite possibly my new favorite saison of all time, a beer I hope to god they brew again. The lime comes through excellently in the nose and translates well into the flavors, giving the beer a clean bitterness in the midpalate which is unusual as hell. Lemon zesty, light and refreshing, just an incredibly kickass beer.
I’ve changed my mind. This is THE kickass beer. 5.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle -- supposed to be shared, but no one else wanted a sour. Oh well! Extremely pleasant -- the aroma is saison yeast, lime, and some faint floral notes, and the taste is crisp, slightly sour, and really balanced. Another outstanding beer from Greensboro, VT.

[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting bubbly white head and minimal lacing. Aroma starts good and gets better and better. Lots of fruit -- blood orange and more -- along with yeast, herbs and light hops. Pleasant tart flavour, citrusy, yeasty and herbal. Medium bodied. F’in great stuff, wish I had tons of it!
