4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Warm (?), yeasty aroma with hints of herb and/or spice. Hazy peach color with a white head that tries to stay. It tries to lace too. Interesting tastes. The mouthfeel is medium and doesn’t thin. The finish is dry and decently bitter. There is also a lingering herb/veg - but not overly intrusive. Back to the tastes: Starts with hints of Belgian candy; earthy notes - don’t know what else to say. Light stone fruit aspects. This is dry except for the first mouth impact. There is something of a burst of ripe stone fruit just before the end of the taste. This is fairly complicated stuff. Really good.

Hazy orange, large head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is very yeasty with some spiced notes, probably coriander. Medium to light body, drinkable. Very well made for the style, but I still struggle to really dig it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours mostly clear golden color with a totally retained egg white head. Aroma of green apples, very light spices, yeast and malt. Flavor is light and effervescent. Lightly sweet with some chalky dryness in the finish. I am thinking this is quite stylistacally accurate. Though the style seems to be even more about subtlety than say saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cludy, pale bopdy with a medium sized off-white head, lots of yeasty sediment. The aroma is bread, honey, light lemon and herbal hops. The flavor is moderately sweet, low bitterness with dough, honey, pears and golden raisins. Medium body is soft with light carbonation. Pretty nice, but in need of a touch more attenuation and bitterness to be great.
