3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy golden yellow with a puffy white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, and slight hints of citrus. The taste is light and refreshing with a slightly bitter after taste. The after effect lingers in your throat for a bit. Decent saison.

pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of strong farmhouse notes, hay, and some Belgian yeast. Flavour brings out loads of farmhouse notes, a little banana, Belgian yeast, and a little hay. Also a bit of sweetness. Wonderful depth and high drinkability.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brewfest Bev. Pale golden with haze fluffy head and lace. White wine/champagne aroma with hints of lemon pastry. Medium melon and vanilla sweetness assertive but ephemeral spicy herbal bitterness with lingering vanilla sugar sweetness. Light with soft carbo. Very complex. Iím a little perplexed as to what I think of this, so I will go with...excellent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crisp, pale golden coloured body with a rich, very thick, five centimetre tall pitch white microfoamed head - very nice, all with zillions of fast bubbles rising from the bottom and sides - beautiful. Aroma of pepper, strong yeast, coriander seed, curacao, lemons, light hops and a very small amount of sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive lemony character up front with a large grassiness, some perfumey hops, a hint of bread with a more refined yeast characteristic, pepper and a good chamomile and coriander seed freshness. Aftertaste shows a little citrus twang, some light alcohol notes, a hint of grassy and herbal notes and some minor sweetness - but all with a good yeast character and some complex finishes. Overall, a very nice and well-rounded beer throughout with a great look, an amazing taste and an even better complexity. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland (PDX Terminal D), Oregon on 28-September-2013 for US$10.95 sampled at home in Washington a day after returning from Portland on 09-December-2013.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh bottle from Last Drop.
Pours golden with a nice fluffy white head. Estery wit-like nose of banana and cloves, barnyard, cookie batter ice cream, flavors sweet early, turning sour middle, finishing dry like oversteeped tea. Interesting beer but Iíve never been a fan of the in-your-face esters of this type so I end up enjoying less than it might deserve -- and Iíve rated it accordingly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Completely opaque straw, borderline yellow with a foamy white head that quickly fizzes out to a thin collar. Aroma is quite funky... Cheesecloth, wet cotton, some damp hay. Lightly tart lemon-lime lies underneath. Slightly woodsiness in the back-end. Taste isnít as funky; little more lemon-lime & a light tartness with some yeasty notes, light bubblegum, & hay. Hint of orange zest with a small hint of oak, cotton funk, & dry Brett in the finish.
