5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Here is the story; I left my house last night, going to the hospital with my wife. 4Ĺ hours later I return with my new born son Melvin, a perfect little boy. Sitting in my couch at 1 am looking at him I need something to celebrate and find my newly arrived EYO from JP in the fridge.
It might be the situation or it might just be the beer, but this is the most perfectly balanced beer I can remember having since.....well since Orval maybe. Fruit, funk, drinkability is just perfect. It makes me think, this is the kind of beer thats the reason Iím in the beer business, the reason I started drinking craft beers to begin with. Thanks a lot JP and cheers to my new son Melvin! I will take you to Dexter when you are old enough so that you can experience maybe the greatest brewery in the world for yourself!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky dark copper with a thin bone white cap of foam. Big earthy and tart berries on the nose with a stern barrel tartness and wild semisweet red berry juiciness. Lovely smooth flavor thatís not too tart, while still being a little funky and red-berry-juicy. Slightly Woody but mostly red juicy and just a little tart.

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 Iím 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"ís appearance. Finishes very bitter.... not seeing the attraction here to real people.
