3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Happy Gnome. Pour is clear golden with no visible head. Musty, lemony, doughy, herbs, and grass notes in the aroma. Taste is biscuit, straw, light pepper, somewhat musty, Belgian yeasty, and cracker malty. Light body with high carbonation. Nothing wrong with it, just uninspiring.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, shared by Ferris. Bright hazy lemony yellow with a soft pillowy head. Strong aroma of marshmallow banana candies and bubblegum. Sweet profile, and I can’t ignore the candyish character-- more like a sweetened Belgian witbier than a saison. Didn’t care for it at all.

Lighter than I would’ve expected, with a different spice profile, less pepper, more clove. Tasty, but not a saison.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into my HOTD tulip glass.
A - Pours straw yellow with a decent one finger tall white head leaving small wisps of lacing down the glass.
S - Smells like a wheat beer to me. It has a few hints of apples, pears, and lemon but it is mostly just wheat.
T - Starts off with a big dose of chewy wheat slowly giving way to a mix of dulled fruits - similar to the nose - and a touch of light funk. Finish is pretty chewy, lingering for some time. Is this really a saison? Could have fooled me.
M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy feel with a tiny bit of funk, lingering through the finish.
O - Meh, this was ok at best. It really didn’t taste like a saison at all until it came completely to room temp. I wouldn’t seek this one out.
