3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best by 12/2017.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a soft hazy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within a nice minute. Lacing seemed appropriate.
The smell had a sweet grassy/herbal aroma up front. Floral and citrus graces underneath with subtle spices to slide in for the balance.
The taste was moderately sweet with the spice to make a nice effort to remain in the balance. Malts make a slight presence. Dry herbal to floral aftertaste runs into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to run nice on the body leading with an almost herbal creamy feel all around.
Overall, this was a pretty nice dry saison, pretty sure I could come back to.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 Gushed a bit when opened but I couldn’t detect any off aroma or flavor so I’m not sure why that happened. Golden with a large white head. Aroma is sweet fruity, lemon, spice, a bit of tartness. Medium, fizzy body. Flavor is citrus and spice and everything nice. Light sour finish. Very nice saison.
