3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Cloudy, light golden, with an almost nonexistent white foam cap.
Aroma: Fruity, dominated by apple and pear, with a hint of peppery yeast.
Taste: Apple, pear, with an earthy, herbal hop character. Yeast adds a slight spiciness.
Mouthfeel: medium with a light carbonation. Poured from a bottle and was flatter than a typical saison should be. Not the freshest example
Finish: Lingering pear and moderate tart dryness.
Overall: I’ve had fresher pours of this on draft that were much more flavorful and effervescent. This bottle was 118 days old and the typical spice and tartness were dulled, with fruit flavors more prominent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like funky yeast but quite tart and citrusy on top of that. Tartness dominates the taste for a long time but eventually you’re left with the yeasty funk of a saison.

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.

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.
