3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A delicious American saison and I donít say that often. Aroma was a nice sweet mix of grass and lemon. Pour was a nice light cloudy gold with plenty of tiny bubbles and a one finger white head. Taste was very lemony. Strong citrus and yeast aftertaste. No funk like I like them but the best American saison Iíve had

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz, bottled Mar 10, 2010. Hazy golden and effervescent, with an enduring meringue coating. Nose is lemon oil, funky yeast, galangal, and a hint of dry mustard. Flavor is lemon, ginger, wheat, musty grape, and dry mustard. Light body is very tingly with carbonation and spiciness, but has a bit too much fizziness for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Just realized that Iíve never rated this, even though Iíve had several times. This is a pretty good US attempt at the style with a tart finish and a good level of spicing. It could pass as a true Belgian, but lacks a little bit in the funk department and slightly errs on the sweet side.

Pours out a mostly clear straw/golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of some tart citrus and light grass. Taste is refreshing and very drinkable, light malts, citrus, grass, tart funky notes and some yeast with some dryness on the finish. Solid summer brew.

Pretty solid saison. Could use more spice but still good. Wish it came in bombers. Donít know if I drink saisons enough to want to buy 6 of them.
