3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2011 Modiale 2007. A little white head on cloudy orange. Appealing aroma of spice and yeast. Taste is great, fortified with rye, a good saison in a great style. Sourness in the finish. Good medium plus mouthfee. Lace in the glass. Refreshing. Had it again in 2008 and was not as enticing.
Had it by bottle in 2011 and very ordinary farmhouse.

Draught at Churchkey, recommendation from Sam. Clear orange, white edge head, good lacing. Aroma is sour orange peel and bubblegum, very nice. Taste is disappointing, sour start followed by unbalanced sweet bitterness. Oh well.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy dark yellow-brown with a small amount of white head that lingers for a while. Smell is fairly sweet, with some vanilla, some spice, and maybe a hint of funk. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is a bit weird, this is much more of a tripel than a belgian saison. Quite sweet at first then follows with a bit of bitter and a bit of sour, the aftertaste is slightly better and balanced with sweetness. Interesting overall, but not really what I think when I hear "rye saison."

Hazy pale amber with a very large white head. Aroma is banana, grain, spices, fruity. Medium body with fizzy carbobation. Taste is malt, banana, some kind of subtle sourness. Good one.
