4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great Saison, nice balance of spicy esters and winey (is that a word?) esters. Very dry like a saison should be, would love to see this beer released as a special beer with Brett, mmmmm.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Approximately 2 ounce sample at the Brewery tasting room in Bay Shore, New York. The pour is a hazed yellow golden with a small white head. The aroma is nice fresh wheat, yeast phenols show and a bit of citrus fruit. The taste is the nose, grainy wheat, clove yeast phenols, and nicely manages sweetness from the malt. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and a nice dry finish. This is my type of Saison. Of the beers I sampled here, I liked this and the Massive IPA the best.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Aroma is yeast and citrus. Thin palate, slightly watery, yeasty, with a nice tart and dry finish with more fruity esters. Not very complex, but it would be an OK summer quaffer.
