2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden amber. The aroma is toasty and slightly metallic. Sweetish, only a little bit floral. Toasty but not interesting. Too clear, not complex. Wouldn’t really call it a saison.

Draught. Poured orange amber, clear with thin fast dissipating head. Aroma is a little spice a little hop. Medium to light body, a little spiciness, a little wheatiness. Rather thin finish, but a nice herbiness.

Had this on tap a few weeks ago at Hopworks. Colour... orange-amber with no head. Nose... stone fruits and candi sugar. Palate... crisp, bright and floral with lively bubbles, dried peach, pear and sweet butyl esters with a medium finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear straw blonde with light covering of head. Lightly spicy nose with mild floral notes. Airy and spring-like complexity. A tad under-bodied for a saison, perhaps fermented on the low-side. Clean, but with mild buzzes of spice and flavor.
