4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 bottle purchased at BevMo in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Pours a cloudy medium golden classic Saison color with a huge, rocky 3-finger head. As the head collapses, it leaves very rich and thick Brussels lace on the side of the tulip shaped glass... great sign! AROMA / BOUQUET: Classic Saison fruitiness, deep grassiness, hay, granny smith green apple with some chardonnay. TASTE: Oh yes... it’s that classic hoppy, yet tart Saison taste, citrus; lemony, grapefruit, nice barnyard funkiness to it. MOUTHFEEL / PALATE: This Saison is a good assault on the olfactory senses- lovely tartness, the label is a perfect picture of what the flavor evokes: fresh herbal grassy dryness, yet not too dry.. and refreshing. OVERALL: A wonderful ale to share with friends, AND your loved one... I had a vision of working out in the hot sun all day, knowing that this was waiting for me in my refrigerator to enjoy at the end of the day... GREAT SAISON!

It’s good. I wanted it to be better though. It does taste like hay, but I wanted it to taste like more hay.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark yellow with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is tart with yeast and barnyard. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Flacour is tart with yeast and orange peel, and a sour horseblanket finish. Quite nice and true to style, but, dare I say, maybe just a little bit boring?

I'm not a saison fan. Yeast pepper flavor. Lemon pepper focus. Not my thing. No head. Average saison.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (25oz): Hazy, medium to thick head and deep golden. Very clean, spice, fruit aromatics. Lovely lift. Citrus rind. Heaps of complexity. Dry, Slightly sour (clean) and moderate bitterness. More phenolic than bitter. Dense, elegant and very long. Layers of flavor. Balanced. Floral, citrus (orange), malt, yeast. Just builds on the palate. Pepper reminds me of Syrah.
Lovely beer. Wonderful Saison. Probably the best or second best example to date.
