4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours a hazy apricot color with a huge, fluffy and long-lasting white head that leaves long stringy lace. Wonderfully yeasty and spicy, fruity with orange notes, sweet hawaiian bread, cardamom and faint anise. Again in the flavor the breadiness stands out, fruty and spicy as well with white pepper, floral and herbal hops, and an pleasant astringent finish. A medium body, creamy carbonation round out this tastey saison!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of yeast, cobwebs, clove, orange. Appears a hazy golden yellow, with a large rocky white head, and with noticeable effervescence of large bubbles. Flavor is somewhat sweet, but also tart, with bread-like flavors up frontt hat give way to peppery spices, and that finish assertively bitter; as the beer warms the peppery flavors become more and more dominant Palate is moderate with light but noticeable effervescence. Overall, a fine saison.
