3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured a clear orange-copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, floral and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where exceeded.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler from the Public House side. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small, lasting white head. Notes of bready malts, florals, dry grains, straw, subtle mixed fruits, and husky earth. No spice to this one. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, bready mouthfeel. Good saison for warm weather.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
More of a mild saison than anything as the aroma, taste, and appearance were below what is to be expected of this style. The head was very small and while there was a dryness to this it also was more on the sweet side leaving me underwhelmed.
