3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light crisp yellow hidden beneath a persistent finger of white billowy foam. Brilliant clarity. The ale yeast dominates the nose with hints of apples and coriander. The nose also has some lemon and the slightest honey note. Flavor is crisply saison with a good bittering addition of hops and some sweetness from the yeast it seems like. There is an industrial flavor on the beer I can’t quite place, not unpleasant. Good long musty finish. The beer is thin with high and lively carb with a watery finish. Good stuff. Not sure I can taste the honey as much as others can, but a solid beer nonetheless.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, light straw color with fine, pillowy white head. Aroma of spent fireworks, slight funk, spice and slight honey essence. Mouthfeel is flat, water-like, and the body is bigger than the appearance led me to expect. Has a somewhat palate cleansing affect, with a very slight amount of tartness. Finishes very dry. This is unique, and a very nice saison for my palate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle
Pours a blonde color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is peppery & floral with a very mild funk and is nicely earthy. It’s hard to describe but it’s got a strange but wonderful bouquet.
The beer is very satisfyingly dry, nicely tart with plenty of earthy and peppery notes. Some good fruit expression of pear and apricot... just really very bright and really very easy to drink.
The palate is lively, and light (in the good sense)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle:   Bright straw, large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Big sharp tart and wheaty nose, slightly funky, barnish, and floral.   Smells great!   Even sharper on the tongue.   Fairly dry, super tart, wheaty, did I mention dry?   Probably one of the best Saisons I have had.   A bit rustic, but sweet.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel, bubbley too.   A little unripened apple/pear skin on the exit.   Finishes dry, tart, very tart, wheaty, with soft barn and floral notes.   Musty too.   Great example of the style!
