3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Bling Tiger, 4/8/13
Aroma: The nose has some fruitiness, spice, saison yeast, and a bit of grass as well
Appearance: This beer pours a clear golden color without much head or lace to it
Flavor: The taste is nicely balanced between the spice, yeast, doughy malts, sweetness, and grass
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a bright, clean feel, a fizzy carbonation, and a sharp, clean finish
I thought this was a pretty solid one overall. It is a light, easy to drink beer, that still has plenty of flavor to it. A nice seasonal offering for drinking as the weather starts to warm up (as it finally has this week!)
