2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Served in a Jester King goblet. Too much body and alcohol. Isn’t all that yeast forward either. Strange character coming from the use of Noble hops; seems like they used way too many and they didn’t last long. Not impressed with the concept or execution.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Dan (danielnovak3) before the Cubs vs. Sox game. Served in a Bell’s tulip.
A: Quite the gusher. We lost about 30% of the beer in a little under a second. Once we got it to calm down it was poured very carefully. The pour yielded a body with a cloudy orange color with golden yellow highlights. A large pure white head formed on the pour and receded slowly leaving behind some splotchy lace.
S: Big fruity esters, spiced yeast and tart citric acid all make up the nose. There is a nice wheaty malt base, but the yeast and tart smells really dominate.
T: The taste is much like the nose, but is more balanced out by the malt base. The yeast is a little spicier with some light pepper corn as well. There is a creamy berry sweetness in the there as well with some fruity alcohol and a tart finish.
M: Medium bodied with a creamy middle and a drying finish. Semi tart finish.
O: A little too big for my liking. I like my saisons a little less chewy, but it was solid all around. I would definitely lay this guy (or girl) down for a little while.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange amber hazey with a huge creamy foamy white almost sandy head. The aroma brings sweet springy clean hops and bready notes. The flavor brings farmhouse yeast and the Saaz hops bitter and contrasting with boozy syrupy malts not working very well.
