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!

This poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was of yeast, lemon, light spice. Flavor was lightly tangy but not acidic, cracked wheat and earthy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #888 for this beer! An oldie here, bottled 1/4/12, corked and caged. Nose honey and light alcohol, touch of maple/pancake syrup; orange peel and malt. Clear, rich golden pour with a little red in it, abundant and consistent carbonation, soapy beige head. Little bit airy, just mega honey, taste lightly sweet but dries out to bone dry, light bitterness, herbal with rosemary and light lilac, some black pepper, not tart at all at this point. Extremely quenching, touch of yeasty-bready character in the finish and dry aftertaste, touch oily, touch of roses showing, medium body, alcohol. This has held up very well and would be a lovely summer drink at any point in history.

Shared bottle (75cl) @ William K Helsinki Sörnäinen. Pours clear amber. White head. The sweetness close like honey starts the game. Earthy tones follow nicely. Quite ok but not great to my liking.
