2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice friendly somewhat tart aroma from a bottle. Lots of visible carbonation in this slight hazy yellow brew. tremendous amount of precipitants floating around with the bubbly action. Big rocky head, overall a nice visible presentation. From the start a quite easy going brew on the palate. Tho it does have a few of those negative ale attributes it comes across rather friendly. It also hides the alky content very well, its mild mannered for 9% fer sure. Better be careful of this one! Goes down way too easy. Could not really be 9%! Aroma goes slightly metallic near the finish. Very little medicinal feel in this one. Good overall balanced saisy. Better than expected.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a yellow straw color with a thick white head.
Aroma is lemony barnyard.
Flavor is tart, lemon, bready malt, mild Belgium funk. Absolutely no indication of this being an almost 9% brew.
Super high carbonation and a skunkiness in the finish. An ok brew considering is a Saison from Mississippi.
