Thanks to tytoanderso for sending this. Pours a nice straw yellow with medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma light on wheat, yeast, slight hops, and a bit of an earthy character. Flavor is pretty mild, but very refreshing and enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shaker pour @ moto-i. This has been one of the most disappointing beers I have had in a while. It is a piss macro-yellow with a thick head. It is way too clear and way too light of a color. Aroma is banana esters and overly sweet Belgian aspects. Especially for a beer like this, its too light to be this sweet. Taste is too sweet, the esters are too strong for the rest of the beer as well. It has a strong mineral feel and an overly tingly carbonation. I feel something good can be made with this beer but this isn’t it right now.

On Cask. Light pour with a medium spicy yeasty aroma. Smooth and light fruit flavors accompanied the spiciness. Had a dry finish. Decent.

On tap at Old Chicago in Roseville, MN. Cloudy golden with a fairly thick head. Aroma of light spice and yeast. Taste was subtle. Lightly spiced with some clove and yeast. Drinks much life a hefeweizen, but for the touch of dryness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on tap, served way too cold) Poured hazy light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is predominately orange peel, coriander, and a decent hit of bready yeast as well. Further warming intensifies these aromas, and a light hint of funk is revealed. The taste is standard saison fare, with coriander, more orange zest, with an underlying sweetness giving way to a pleasant cracker-like finish. All in all, this was quite good, and it would serve well as a sessionable beer in the warmer summer months.
