2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted as "Saison Diego". Pours a soft clean yellow with two fingers of foamy white head. Quick to dissipate. Nose smells off....like something that is past its prime. I think its a combo of yeast, acetaldehyde, and the adjuncts. Smells like bad spicy cider.... Nothing right going on here. Except for the light body and dry finish. Lightly peppery. God awful flavor, tastes like old OJ.

Draft at Falling Rock. Poured a lemon peel color with a small white head and light lacing. Smell is dough, biscuit, spice, yeast, and coriander. Taste is light lemon, bread, yeast, and citrus. Light body and soft carbonation. Pretty simple and somewhat watered down. Forgettable.

Bottle poured a pineapple yellow with a small white head that dissapated quickly, active carbonation, and notable lacing. Aroma includes floral notes, apple, and hints of banana and lemon. Taste is similar to aroma with flowers, grass, banana, and lemon zest. Very refreshing, drinkable saison perfect for hot summer days.

Lightly hazy golden with a large, rocky head. Aroma has zesty fruit, light yeast, a bit of grass. Flavor is much the same with a nice bite on the finish. Refreshing and tasty if not all that complex. Makes for a good porch saison.
