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.

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 I’ve 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 it’s hits your bloodstream. Great stuff. Much of Kirkwood Station’s brews are decent, familiar, true-to-style stuff, but this is proof they are capable of much more. I can’t wait to taste the barrel-aged version.

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.
