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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Diamond: Effervescent golden orange pour with an off white consistent film. Aroma is quite buttery. Apparent diacetyl with a grainy note in the background. Crisp carbonation. Light body- the flavor has fruity yeast notes- seems like hot fermentation esters that clash with butterscotch (diacetyl). Quite buttery with a nondescript grainy back. Why don’t they just do a diacetyl rest? Wasn’t it already hot fermentation with a Saison yeast? Weird.

cask with strawberry at spuyten. Nice sopay bubble wwthead on aslightly pink yellow body. Not much aroma and what. Is there is off the flavoris complex and wonderfull starts of much like any other like it and then hits a pop that is all the flavor of straberry with no sweetness. Finish is sour with funk and straw.
