4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crisp, fruity ale. The fruit doesn't overpower. A welcome taste. A gold standard for saison beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at The Big Hunt in D.C.
the beer is hazy and straw to golden hued with a quarter inch of white head. the aroma offers malt, grass, light spice, coriander, pepper. Medium bodied and malty, with a bit of a harsh / aggressive hop punch toward the finish. Pepper and alcohol, citrus, lemon. A bit unrefined. Not bad, but lacking the elegant complexity and/or drinkability I was seeking.

Banana, bubblegum, yeasty. Pale cloudy yellow, medium white head. Slight bitterness, bready balanced by bubblegum. Alcohol is slightly present, slightly oily, relatively lively. Pretty darn good.

Bottle. Wine Warehouse. CHO.
Pours cloudy golden with 1/2" of foamy white head. Smells of sour wheat and grass. Tastes of sour grasses, lemon, rice, and wax lips.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very middling Saison. Not enough earthy seasoning for me. Pours hazy yellow with less than expected head. Scent is grass and nutmeg. Tastes is not well balanced between spice, bitter, and sweet. Medium and undercarbonated. Blah. Draft - Manuel’s Tavern - Atlanta, GA

This reminds me so much of la fin du monde which is strange... pours opaque gold with white frothy head that doesn’t hold well. Bubble gum and yeasty nose. Crisp on the tongue with a nice finish.

tap - tasty fruity saison. Touch of barnyard funk, hay and sheep milk cheese. Dry, slightly hoppy finish.

A very nice Saison. Not particularly extreme, but a nice understated beer with grassyness and some belgian spicyness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a glowing yellow with a really thin head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is of a spicy, classic saison. Taste is a little sweet and fruity. Palate is light and it is easy drinking. Lacking complexity overall but still a really nice "no-brainer". I would drink this again.

pre-tasting bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro. pours hazy pale yellow with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. plain pils malts - bit of fruitiness, bit doughy, peppery, bit of dust, ample yeast - saizohn-esque, some floral notes and bitter herbs. bright carbonation, light body - oily, drying herbal-grassy-spicy finish. ok.
