3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden color. Pleasant lightly fruity yeast. Some clove. Light toast but not a terribly interesting malt profile. Dying finish that I’m not sure about.

On tap at the barely open "Roof at Park South" in NYC. Light cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, faint smoke, yeast, spices. Ditto for flavor, lightish to med mouthfeel.. crisp finish. Not my favorite take on the style

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - Tart, grassy, lemon and yeast. Pale cloudy yellow with a thin head. Apricot and fruity esters. Sweet and chalky, not my thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5oz sample at the brewery. Lemon-yellow cloudy beer, no lacing, small head, zesty aroma, just fruit and a little barnyard in it. Nicely done taste--good medium palate, just enough bitterness, more sour than sweet, not very complex but nothing bad in it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color, aroma of yeast and spices. Malty and wheat flavor, with slightly bitter tart aftertaste. Good representative of farmhouse ales from this brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initial lemon aroma with a good bit of farmhouse funk to follow. Pour is quite yellow, small white head. Taste is tart lemon, little spice, little funk. Very refreshing, not a long finish. Very good beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that quickly vanished. The nose is mostly wheat and pale malt with just a light hint of yeastiness and spice. The flavor is a little lacking in complexity, it comes across as a bit heavy on the malt and lacking on yeast influence. Not a whole lot of spiciness or earthiness from the yeast. Lingering sticky pale malt. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Ok beer I guess, but doesn’t fit with what I’m looking for in a Saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the hotel room in San Diego. Hazy yellow/golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Sourish perfume aroma, grassy, spicy, grape fruit notes. Citrus and perfume flavor, grassy, grapefruit, pine, floral, some hay notes. Solid enough saison.
