3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at College Inn. Pours hazy yellow with splotchy white head and irregular lacing. Lemon zest, pepper, mineral, somewhat floral, just the lightest touch of bubble gum. Lightly sweet up front gives way to a dry, slightly tart finish. Medium body, lively, prickly carbonation. Refreshing, despite the 7.3%. Overall: this is a very nice saison -- it’s nice to find a non-bretted/wild American saison that isn’t straight up bubble gum and coriander. Would drink again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at RnH. Hazy blonde pour. Dry, peppery, rustic barnyard funk. Not that sugary, so I don’t get that bubble gum flavor I don’t like in saisons. Pretty good.

Belgian yeast, banana, citrus, and spice in the aroma. Flavor is a little sweet and fruity with some underlying musty barnyard flavors. Bitter citrus finish.

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
