Bottle @ Ratman’s house. Thanks Ken! Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. Straw/pale grainy, bready yeasty, zesty lemon, somewhat funky aroma. Dry grainy, tangy fruity, chewy yeasty, straw, easy drinking flavor with a dry finish. I’m not sure I get any cranberries but it is a nice session beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, pour is hazy yellow with thin white head, aroma brought notes of bandaid, cranberry, hints of slight veggie, earth, some vanilla, slight funk, hints of sour fruits, very interesting and a bit odd. Taste is a mix of sweet cranberry, tart fruits, slight earth, touch of grain, finishing fairly vanilla forward, slightly grassy. Interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus, belgian yeast, and a little sour funk in the aroma. Flavor starts slightly sweet with some spice and citrus. Some sour and a little tart cranberry in the finish. Not as much cranberry as I expected--this is a pretty traditional saison, and a pretty good one at that.
