3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Acquired in a trade. 2010 batch, bottled in 2012. HUGE gusher. Lost half the bottle. Poured a glass out of it and a minute later, bubbles came out of the bottle again. Never had a half full beer continue to bubble over the neck.
A - Murky plum / amber brown. HUGE head of 10+ fingers had to pour insanely slow. Decent lacing head was purple white.
S - Tart grape skins on the nose, floral and blackberry scents as well. Some breadiness.
T - Nice up front bright raspberry tartness. The middle is an earthy light juicy where the hibiscus comes through. Finish is this very mild cherry and plum taste. Lots of low acid fruits come through and it’s a nice solid drinkable beer.
M - Medium body, tons of carbonation but the mouth feel is great.
O - I like this beer a lot. Drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around with hay and straw for the malt, grass and lemon for the hops, barnyard for the yeast, with notes of vinegar, flowers and unripe green apple skin. Head is large, frothy, pinkish off-white, with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky pink, and muddies up brown on the last pour. Flavor starts moderately acidic and a touch sour, and finishes lightly acidic and just a scant bitter. Palate is light, watery with a lively carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This Saison is awesome! Makes my mouth water while I’m smelling it before I sip it, and when I did I had to stop myself from guzzling it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Large shared bottle.
Too funky (both aroma and flavor) for my taste, and with too much vinegar in the aroma. Lightly tart flavor.
Feel: Lively carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazed plum meat color. Foamy white head. Sour aroma with oak notes. Flavor is sour fruit in oak. I cannot detect all the botanicals in flavor, only in color from the "beer"’s appearance. Finishes very bitter.... not seeing the attraction here to real people.
