3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light cloudy yellow, light carbonation. Aromas remind me oh sooo much of the gum I grew up chewing, JUICY FRUIT!!! Other than that you have banana, spice(little ginger), lemon zests, light yeasty presence, with slight sour apple. Flavors of lemon, sour apple, hay, slight honey and banana esters. Slightly sour, dry, sweet, complex, zesty, not watery, crisp, refreshing (but I don’t encourage to many of these "refreshing" beers in one sitting). Man this Saison might be one of my favorites thus far in my journey of tastemanships.

Colette pours gold cloudy with a head that is almost white and is long lasting. Grass and light lemon in the nose. Flavor is complex and begins aggressive. Grass, grain, honey, lemon, wheat, alcohol, earth. Finish brought out some mild spiciness. A very enjoyable beer and something that had a feel that was definitely Olde World.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good sized, sloppy, bright white head of varying sized bubbles. Good carbonation. Citrusy and grassy aroma with some lemon, corn and rice. Color is a medium gold. Light and crisp flavor with more lemon and straw. I bit lively in the mouth with a nice crisp dryness and a tad of sweetness. Kind of reminds me of a white wine without the grapes. Light alcohol presence. Finishes dry and grainy. A decent saison.

Bottle. Subtle sweet and funk aroma. Golden body with medium head. The yeasts are prominent as the flavor is sweet with a little tart, the barley, wheat and rice are nicely balanced. Finish is dry and crisp, very easy to drink

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Funky, musty, and a little shitty pear nose, perhaps excessively funky. Clear yellow, no head. Aged cheddar is present throughout but fairly prominent in the beginning and end. As the flavor of cheese subsides, it is supplanted with musty pear. A bit much on the carbonation. Good amount of funk and neat interpretation. I love the brewer, but have been disappointed in the past with their belgian and wheat offerings. This is respectable and of a quality I have come to expect..

Very nice for the warmer weather. Fruity aroma from a yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Flavor is fruity with a nice sourness to it. Finishes very dry. Nice and refreshing.

Bottle pours a light hazy golden yellow with a lively white head. Light malt aroma with some tart fruity notes and a touch of old socks. Dry tart flavor with flavors of apple and white grapes. Lingering spiciness with a little oft hat Belgian funk.
Refreshing and crisp.
