3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
19th July 2015
Lightly hazy deep gold beer, big cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Malts are smooth with a little creamy sweetness. Mild spice and light dried fruits. Semi sweet floralness. Smooth semi dry finish. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts here. Comes together very well.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange-gold, with a creamy, dense white head and thick lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus, wheat, honey, slight pine needle...pretty nice. Seems a little too bitter for a saison, not true to style but still very nice. The complex flavors that underline the bittersweet top make up for the overhopping. Lots of citrus and sweet malt, some mineral flavors, not quite sour enough for me but still slightly sour, strong alpha hop bitterness that adds some pine. Has a soft palate, medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and bitter finish.

Bottle. Light cloudy orange with a biege head. Candied sugar, yeast, light caramel malt, bit of dough. Moderate carbonation and body, easy to drink, somewhat sweet, dry and yeast on the finish.

These guys are great at there aroma and champagne like carbonation that really goes with the phenolic banana pear orange zest nose. Flavor is mouth prickling good ness. Great orange spice flavors with dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is bubblegum sugar sweetness and a minor fruit. Flavor is a decent citrus hop to start then comes some thick lager malt and ripened fruit notes. Finish has a almost syrupy thick honey sweetness. Very sweet toward the end of the swallow. Much to low on yeasty esters and too high with the sweetness to make this a great saison but this is still solid.

"Meh was the norm for Iron Fist, some worse, a couple better, but this one was straight down the middle. Nothing to distinguish itself. A little muddled with a light sweetness and hop presence and a little additional zest perhaps, but pretty mild."

Golden/amber pour with a light whitish head. Fruity/bready aroma with a slight funk. Pleasantly balanced, slightly sour with a hint of barn. A bit of citrus stepped on by the malt. Not half bad. Would I drink again? Yes. Would I order again? Yes.
