2 finger head, it’s a dark orange beer with a lot of cloudiness. smells nice, american hops, herbs, pepper, interesting bitterness with the malt bill. doesn’t come together very well. thin mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ BCTC, Ommegang Brewery. August, 8, 2015. Aroma is mostly Belgian yeast with traces of honey and hay.
Flavor shows the honey grain base with a solid yeast character, maybe some light herbal hints in the backside. Smooth carbonation level. Everything about it is subtle. Pretty standard but rather easy to drink.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pony Bar, Hell’s Kitchen Mahattan tap ($6): Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is bubblegum and fruit. Taste is much the same. pretty weak. The flavors don’t come together. Tastes sort of soapy. Palate and profile are pretty bland. This to me is another Kelso failure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap WFM into my growler. Hazy with a golden color with small white head. Light bitter taste with a lighter body than I prefer for a Saison. Carbonation was average and the finish did not linger. Average beer.
