2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden ochre to bronze color, light hoppy smell (almost checmical smelling); taste was wine-ish with a raisin flavor and strong finish like cough syrup.
I admit that I am not a Saison fan, but this was one of the weaker offerings I have tried.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On Tap, Thirsty Monk. This my first beer from Hi-Wire and it was..off (don’t worry, all their other bers we had were solid). No Saison character, heavy palate, odd flavors. It just never really came together.
