Poured from a bottle at home. Pours pale gold with thin head. Mild and clean aroma of malt, wild yeast, green apple. Similar taste. Not my favorite Great Divide but still decent.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy pale gold color. Big rocky white head. Yeasty, lemony malt aroma. Zesty, bready malt flavor has a wonderful tart citrus character. Refreshing and tangy with an earthy maltiness. Some wheat-like notes as well.finishes dry and champagne-like.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours pale gold with thin head. Slightly cloudy. Mild and clean aroma of malt, wild yeast, green apple. Opens light with some sweet, fruity notes, developing into a bit of yeasty funkiness toward the middle. Tart, crisp finish. Though rather light in character, it has a surprisingly heavy mouthfeel. Not heavy overall, just more than expected. Very clean, pleasant, refreshing beer.

This beer pours a hazy whitish-yellow color with a small white bubbly head that dissipated very quickly even with an aggressive pour. The aroma biscuit and pineapple. The beer has a rather tropical aroma to it. The pineapple is picked up in the flavor yet stronger in the aroma. The taste also has some bready yeast flavor to it and some very slight spices to it but not much. Worth a try!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Lemons, wheat, slight funk, subtle spice.
A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Wheat, lemons, funk, subtle spice.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly funky finish.
O Seemed more along the lines of a wheat ale than a farmhouse. Not much spice and just a little funk that sets it apart from anything different. Just needed a lot more depth to this one. Refreshing though.

Tapp på BottleRock LA. Gul med vitt skum. Syrlig doft med inslag av ananas. Tropiska syrliga smaker. Kort eftersmak.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at TCB in Iowa City, served in a pint glass.
A: A cloudy, hazy gold beer, which had no head to speak of when it arrived. Lacing was minimal as well.
S: Smelled as a wheat beer using Belgian yeast might, along with a metallic sour note.
T: The taste followed the smell rather closely: a solid wheat beer laden with Belgian-esque yeast and a citric-metallic sourness. The taste opened with lemon and wheat, with the sour flavors developing through the middle and lingering on the finish.
M: Verging on medium-bodied, with lovely carbonation.
O: Not a bad saison. Would drink again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale gold pour with a 1 finger, soapy to creamy off white head. Aroma is big cereal and bready yeast right away, some stone fruit, dishwater wheaty notes, and some floral, perfumey hops. Flavor is big on doughy bready yeast, some cereal, dishwater wheat, oily grain, floury wheat, honey, a little booziness and floral hops. Medium body, oily feel, light, sharp carbonation. Pretty average Saison that’s way too strong, kinda messy and boozy, but still decent.
