3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bond (1 block from DDC). Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with yeast or hop particles floating around- big lasting white head and solid lace. Aroma is earthy, musty, herbal hops, and good fresh bready malts and some cracker hints. Hoppy flavor with slight woodsy hint, herbal, and good bready light carapils anda drying easy going finish. Very nice easy drinking saison/belgian ale- the typical saison yeast character isnt really found here, but the beer is still real nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub’s anniversary. Hazy yellow pour, lots of frothy white head. Aroma is quite tart and lemony, a bit of grain and saison yeast. Taste is lemony, some alcohol quite straightforward. Palate is a little slick for the style, I was expecting more from this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn ($15): Pours orange with a sea foam head. Aroma is tropical fruit and a bit of funk, but it ain’t as saisonesque as many other saisons. Taste is mildly bitter, with a hoppiness that carries over to the aftertaste. A little on the dry side. Somewhat sweet around the middle. Nothing all too impressive.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled draught at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Opaque apricot in color, little head, no real lacing....apricots in the nose as well, at first the fruitiness dominates but a bit of earthy funk works its way in eventually....body starts out rather too sweet, dries out a bit midpalate, gets a bit mineralic and salty to finish....somewhat "dirty" or rough on the palate and too sweet and syrupy overall, too much fruit-sugar....drinkable, but a disappointment.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 750 ml. Hazy golden/orange with a small fully lasting white head and fair lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast, bubblegum and fruits. Flavor is medium sweet with spices, fruits, citrus and malt. Slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is oily and acidic. Medium to full body. Interesting Saison and really enjoyable but medium drinkability due to sourness and heavy body.
