4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a bottle into a pint glass; pours a deep white lacy head with strong carbonation. A complex ale with lemony, phenolic nose and pepper feeling finish. Good blend of spices with Belgian yeast flavor characteristics. A cool feeling beer to have such a high ABV. A good spring offering that would work all summer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on draught at the Hinterland brewery.brewpub in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale saison with a creamy off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing, Aroma of light yeast, golden grain malt, a hint of Ivory soap and herbal spices. Taste is full bodied, with flavors of yeast, white pepper, golden grain malt and plenty of herbal spices. Finish continues the spicy aftertaste, medium bite bitterness that quickly disappears and leaves behind more spice aftertaste. This is one solid farmhouse saison.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy honey gold color topped by a massive pillowy white head that stays around. Yeasty malt nose has bready notes. Flavor is sharp bready malt and hay. Some bitterness. Some clove and vanilla. Complex and spicy with earthy notes. Spicy hops in finish have grassy, citrus notes. I liked this a lot. Don’t understand why ratings are so low. Excellent example of a Farmhouse Ale.

Particulate laden golden yellow with a large slowly dissipating tan topper. Aroma is grassy and spicy with yeast, pepper, citrus, lemon, bready malt and faintly skunked hops. Taste is citrusy with orange, yeast, bready malt, white pepper, mild sugar and finishes up a touch sweeter than most saisons. Better than most saisons too.

Bottle: The aroma consists of floral notes, lemon grass, yeast, and a hint of banana. It pours a hazy gold with lots of sediment and a small white head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with citrus and banana. The finish has some lemon grass, pepper, and faint herbal notes. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. Overall, too sweet for a saison, but still pretty tasty.
