3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really nice beer but there was a big separation between draft and the bottle. My draft experience left me wanting the rest of the keg but the bottle was not as memorable.
With that, it lacks the liveliness of other saisons but it really succeeds in different flavors. A little darker than straw and minimal head.
I would drink this again from either draft or bottle but I would go for draft first.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a clear, sunny-amber color, with a huge froth head on top.
Smells of wheat entangled orange peel, spiced up by black peppers and coriander. Offers a soothing wet grass quality among toffee malts and a whiff of rock sugar.
Has a higher, lively carbonation, although the beer’s overall soft and creamy mouthfeel prevails, while adding a nice refreshment to it.
Tastes of bitter cardamom and equally bitter lemon peel accompanied by white orange zest, hay and a rock sugar peak. Unusually refreshing with blood oranges and a note of black peppers together with a soft aqueous quality. Finishes with a world class creaminess, while a perfectly dosed, bubbly carbonation cuts through along with sweeter spices, and a still recognizable bitter counterpart from the beginning.
Fantastic beer overall, offers a unique twist while sticking to the style, perfected by its balance and supersmooth mouthfeel.

On tap at Cafe Sara, may 7th 2015. CLear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma is citrussy with malt and a mild yeast sting. Taste is acidic with floral and herbal notes. Semisweet finish. Lacks alittle saison yeast feel and dryness for me, though it makes a nice thirst quencher.

750 ml bottle. Pleased that this is now at my local Total Wine.
Clear-ish yellow pour, white head. Lovely nose of honey and lots of barnyard dust. Very tasty though not funky and no untoward esters, fairly strong noble hop presence late. If this was 5% instead of 6.5% it would be absolutely brilliant. I like my saisons a little more crushable; for something higher in abv this doesn’t have the intensity I would ask. Still, great beer.

Birch and Barley, DC bottle: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is funky and herbal, honey, and just a tad fruity. Taste is slightly hoppy but mostly on the funky side. Quite herbal. Plenty of honey. Nice.
