On tap. Pours a hazy straw color with a large white foamy head. Aroma of wheat, clove, light citrus, and coriander. Taste of mild yeast, bready malt, lemon sweetness, and spices.

Disappointed. High abv but nothing special for its style. Average saison. More like a kolsch. Like white rice mixed with alcohol and a little seasoning.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a big frothy head and aromas that are... well... tart and pretty good. This bottle almost smells faintly of lambic-type tartness at first, but it has a little spice that starts to overpower it as it warms and then it gets a bit of a band-aid aroma. Flavor is more honey that sour, but there is a slight sourness that makes it a very interesting interpretation of the style. As it airs out and warms it gets a little more bland, but it is pretty interesting and I can’t say I have had a saison like this one.

Refreshing. Light. Hints of lemons. A great summer brew, for sure. Reminded me of a Blue Moon, with a touch of hoppiness. Great brew for a day beer.

Bottle at Brewdog Shoreditch. Clear very pale gold. Saison yeast flavour. Hops on the finish are pretty special. Saison aroma. Bit too carbonated so got another glass to decant into. Poured the yeast in and it was fuller. Pretty good sweeter than usual but great hops on the finish.

From a 3 oz taster at the brewery in Denver. Pours a cloudy pale gold with an off white head. Aroma of mango and citrus. Flavors of cardamom, orange and lemon. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is barley/wheat. Color is bright, straw yellow. Tastes of earthy, barnyard wheat and barley. Alcohol can be tasted. An average saison....has that farmhouse style but not enough quality to really make it a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy golden yellow with large white head. Smells of sour lemon candy and yeast with traces of ginger and berries. Carbonation is small and crisp. Fairly light bodied. Flavors roughly follow the aromas but it somehow falls short on sweet and sour expectation. Too bad I really wanted to like it and only turned out Ok in the end.
