4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. Yellowish golden color, somewhat cloudy, with a lasting one finger white head. Excellent floral fruity aroma with herbal notes and hay. The flavor is nice with a fruity white grape and elderflower start, then some light lemony and citrusy hops and herbal notes. Extremely dry and somewhat bitter with lively carbonation. A really nice beer from the Abbey that is occasionally Flat. Really impressed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Beer Revolution. Pours chill hazed light golden with a thicker buttermilk head. Intense estery aroma with herbs, Tea, honey, sweet candies, full on phenolic character. Not really wanted in style. Tons of sweet herbal tea. Taste is dry, ultra green herbal with huge amounts of lavender, chamomile, rosemary, sage. Super grassy. Ultra herb garden character. Thicker sheets of lace remain. Yummy. Usually spiced phenolic blonde ale is not the wanted approach for this style. This works but I wouldn’t recommend Following suit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a hazy light amber with a two finger white head that sticks around for a long time and leaves a large amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is some black pepper, a bit of earthy funkiness, and some light lemon. A bit of clove as well. The initial taste is dry with some black pepper, then comes a bit of funkiness with some earthy mineral notes and some light grass. The finish is clean and really dry. This beer was really dry throughout, which I enjoy. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Quite a nice saison. I hope they brew this one regularly.
