3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this a while back at the brewpub. It poured a hazy golden blonde color with a white head. The aroma was of bananas, light cloves, yeast, some golden grain malt, honey and a touch of herbs. The taste was medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some honey, light cloves and a touch of lemon. The finish was semi-sweet at first that changes to a tart lemon and crisp aftertaste. Some multi-personality character going on with this saison. Very tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewery (Kirkwood, MO). Pours a hazy yellow gold hue, a bit dulled and darker with decent whitish head atop. Mellow ring laces small. Aromas are a bit grainy, yeasty with subtle spice and farmhouse yeast. A bit bready, mellow fruit and subtle citrus. Some gentle sweet pineapple, subtle apple and fruit elements make it a touch sweeter than expected. Initial is medium bodied, nice firmer sweetness up front is apple, bready malts and pineapple overripe sweeter sugary elements. A bit yeasty, gentle flaked wheat and bread join into the middle. The more potent sweet fruity front tapers out to a yeasty backend, farmhouse, gentle spice and pear. Some graininess, yeast, and gentle sweetness finish. A bit too sweet for me, especially up front, eschewing the more crisp, yeasty driven Saison style I like. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells faintly like banana. Spicy. Fruity. Quite yeasty. A hint of hotness at the end but it works well with the spiciness up front

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at the brewery in a tulip glass. It poured a mostly clear orange amber colour with fluffy, long-lasting white foam with nice Belgian lace. Husky grain, rising dough, baking bread, strong Belgian yeast esters and phenols. Definitely some kinda Belgian ale, but darker and richer than any classic Saisons Iíve tasted, the grainbill struck me more as a biscuity, caramelly, fruity English ESB. Some faint earthy and barnyard-y brett aspects. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, long-lasting complex aftertaste. Spicy, but extremely smooth. Absolutely no trace of the high alcohol, until the euphoria later when itís hits your bloodstream. Great stuff. Much of Kirkwood Stationís brews are decent, familiar, true-to-style stuff, but this is proof they are capable of much more. I canít wait to taste the barrel-aged version.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at brewpub june 2013
Pours ligbtly hazy orange witb a small fizzy white head.nose is sweet and phenolic spice lite corriander smells more spiced than anything. Flavors are very phenolic lots of plastic spice and quite a bit of fruity notes. Not quite what I was expecting tastes more like a triple than anything else. Long phenolic and spice finish. Thia is a fairly well made beer however its a bit off character for the style.
