3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into stemmed tulip. Hazy/opaque. Dark straw/yellow. Moderate pour produces strong head; dissipates fairly quickly. No lacing. Nose is citrus, floral, maybe hay or grass. Mouthfeel, surprisingly creamy for a farmhouse. For the style, moderate-to-low carbonation. Taste is nice. Strong orange citrus, floral, a little strawberry, and a bitter hops aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Immediately right after opening the bottle you get citrus, grapefruit and spices aroma. Pours clear , gold hue with a good white head. Head retention is ok, dissipates rather quick. Taste of citrus, grapefruit, spices, yeast, slightly bitter/sour and Orange zest. Crisp feel in the mouth with a slight dryness at the end. As a saison it’s not my favorite but it’s within my top 5. This is definitely a brew that can be enjoyed year round. Glad I was able to get a few packs.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler. Pours hazy golden with a decent, frothy eggshell head. Aroma has fruity and yeasty notes riding a malty undertone. Crisp flavor has a strong fruity core of pear, banana and apple with tart citrus and wheaty hints. Texture is firm, though fizz is not strong or persistent. Brings a bit of summer into a chilly winter.

Bottle. Moderate malt and hops aromas of hay, grass and lemon, with hints of pear and vinegar. Head is small, fizzy, white with spots of lacing and good legs, and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation. Great flavors and aromas, with a pleasant palate make this a perfect go-to Saison.
