3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance is a bright pale yellow and gold color with an inch of off-white foam. Aroma is sharp and yeasty with notes of citrus peel, pear and clove. The taste starts out tart and acidic with a blend of lemon, white grape, green apple and honey malt sweetness. Also a bit of pepper and spice from the yeast. As expected, thereís lots of lively carbonation in the body along with a dry, tart finish. Gets the job done as a thirst quencher.

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
A - Pours hazy pale straw with a half inch whit head that is very active and sinks quickly into nothing.
S - Yeast, sulpher, damp hay, orange and lemon zest, gala apples,
T - Lots of sweet orange, lemon, and apples. Sweet wheat, thin sugary sweet fruit flavors.
M - Fizzy carbonation, thin body. It feels like zots candy on your tongue. Finish kind of stings the back of the throat.
Great aroma not so great flavors. Everything seems bland with added sucrose.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle at Rye & Thyme - Leominster, MA. Nose is slightly grassy with notes of funk. Taste is a bread malts, flower petals, grassy notes and real light yeast tones. Some nice banana and bubblegum tones. Maybe even apples. Wheat yest is decent. Overall itís not going to really impress a hardcore saison drinker but itís a nice lighter, easy to drink example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed blonde saison with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, a sweet fruity malt with light banana esters, light soapy notes, grassy and creamy. In mouth, a smooth fruity honey malt with loads of bananas, apples, orange pulp, a bit oxidized, but still good. Light alcohol warmth in finale, with light Belgian hops lingering.
