3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I dont’ usually expect my Saisons to have an abv like this, but it’s Great Divide, so I knew balance would be in there. Smooth, light funk and the booze is well disguised. A valiant effort in a wide category that’s open for a lot of creativity. They brought it. A nice ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Cloudy yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is funky and earthy with citrus, overripe fruits, wheat and a bit of spiciness. Dry-ish flavor with a bit of sweetness, light acidity, alcohol, a bit of yeast fruitiness and a drier spicy finish. Medium-bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light golden with white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is light with some banana and clove esters. Flavor is also light, fruity and refreshing with no noticeable bite for a 7.3% beer. Not the greatest beer I have had, but certainly a repeat purchase.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very hazy yellow with a soapy white head. Nose has a mildly sweet yeast, malt and fruity aroma to it. The flavor has some sweet-slightly sour malty and fruity notes along with some yeasts, slight lemon zest and peppers. Aftertaste is also very dry. Body is moderate in weight and the carbonation is mild enough to where it adds some flavor. Pretty flavorful and refreshing and an all around good Saison.

2013 draught to a snifter. Pours a hazy straw yellow with small fizzy white head. Aroma is citrus, a little barnyard funk with malt and a little tartness. Taste is the same with some grassiness and a little sweetness and some spice. Dry mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden straw into the glass, with a minimal ring of suds that leaves trace lacing. The nose is of earthen hay and barnyard silage. Flavors follow in tow, somewhat grassy and hay-like, with a hint of tart fruit and grains. The finish is earthen and grassy, with a balancing hop that provides a light pepper accent. The palate is kept active and the quaff is easy. Medium-bodied, this goes down well during the summer months. Nice job.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Scent is of salt water taffy and grapefruit. The color is so bright it’s basically luminescent. The head is a booming and full. The taste is light, airy, fruity. Colette has a tart finish. While it’s a little more complex than you would think, it’s still not as interesting or flavorful - for me - as I would have expected. Good pop on that ABV though.
