2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
One pint bottle - pours a burnished copper with some very fine suspended particles - pour has some initial fizzy carbonation, but the beer very quickly becomes nearly still - no bubbles, no head - nose is quite sweet - strong tropical fruitiness - strong bubblegum esters - strong spiciness - the beer feels nearly flat in the mouth - quite sweet - flavors of apricot, bubblegum, mildly husky grains - strong bitterness and spices arrive late, washing away the sweetness - however, the finish then becomes overly bitter and far too spicy - also feels far too slick and heavy in the mouth for the style - messy.

Bottle poured into glass. Definitely a nice spicy citrus aroma happening here. Slightly hoppy with a peppery finish.

Jacksonville, Fl. - Grassroots Natural Market - pint bottle. Hazy medium pour, sticky eggshell colored head, sticky lacing. Aroma has some light lemony accents, some yeasty notes. Flavor is very quaffable with some light sweet doughy notes, light saffron-likespiciness, some nectarine-like fruitiness. Mouthfeel is nice and thick. Pretty solid - thanks for the tip drowland!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Fermentation. Light amber color with a frothy white head. Sweeter aroma with mild cheese, pale malt and citrus. Flavor is somewhat bland with peppery yeast, pale grainy sweet malts and subtle citrus. Not terrible, but not what I look for in the style.

Dract to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells doughy and spicy. Tastesike it smells, only better, with a yeasty presence too. Nice on the palate. A decent saison.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
5 ounce sampler at the Hinterland Milwaukee restaurant. Golden, clear appearance, white foam, lacing. Cake, yeast, pepper, lemon aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma. Crisp, citrus, sweet, lemon-pepper. Light in body, smooth, moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a refreshing spring beer to have on the patio when you eat outside for the first time of the season. It’s light and still carries a nice, balanced spice and citrus flavor.

Metallic citrus aroma. Nifty fun things floating around in a yellow beer. Flavor of mild lemon furniture polish, but in a good way, heheh. I’m liking these hinters more and more. Not bad for an over the sixer. Does not completely hide the bitterness but it comes across rather refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Old Fashioned. Hazy dulled orange-tan. Thin off-white head. Lots of carbonation. Big-time spice bomb. Lively, lacks subtlety. Peachy cinnamon, kind of intense and odd, though quite drinkable. Ginger, coriander, lemon. Unrefined.
