3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from EZ Liquors. Poured a super thin pale yellow that could almost be mistaken for a macro except for the huge frothy bright white head. Aroma is complex with lots of pepper and spice, lemon zest, spoiled tangerines, bubble gum and over ripe bananas. The body fills up your mouth and washes down creamy yet very fizzy from the highly active carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor of wheat, lemon, grass and yeast. Solid but the aroma trumps the flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am very pleased with this. I am usually not much on Saisons but this was very pleasing. Pale yellow with continuous ascending head that ends up soft and white. Very effervescent in the mouth. Finishes clean.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Some subtle hops, but more of the "lemon pepper" feel. Doesn’t hold up against some of the other famous saisons, but it’s fine for an American saison.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle, pours a hazy golden color with copious head. Aroma is overwhelmingly spicy as expected with high malt content, not very complex. Taste was a good mix between bitter and spicy, with more bitterness than spicyness. Palate was moderately rough and nice full body. Decent saison, good bold palate stands out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle served in a tulip. Nice hazy yellow pour with a medium sized white head. Decent lacing and retention. The nose is fragrant and farmhouse. Sweet, pink bubble gum, yeasty, and fruit. Medium sweet flavor. Lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel, light-medium body, and a dry, pink eraser finish. A well crafted domestic saision.

Bottle. Pours unclear golden yellow with a thin white head. Slightly tart fruity aroma on a wheaty base, with some spicy and lemony notes. The flavor has wheaty notes and is a bit tart, with spices and a hint of lemon. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Copper, cloudy pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and faint barnyard funk. Sharp taste of malt and hops. Lacks the typical dry aftertaste of a saison. Nothing really stands out.
