Clear yellow golden in color... Aroma of a crisp, Chardonnay wine... Flavor is light and crisp, hints of pepper, earthy grains, grape sweetness on finish... Not terribly complex, thin mouthfeel... Decent, definitely drinkable

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a frothy, two finger white head into this glass. It retains very well, with some spotting present. The nose is cut grasses, peppery spicing, raisin bread provides some sweetness, with a hint of citrus and peach present here. The flavor profile is bittering, spicy hops initial, sweet bread and citrus, moving to softer fruits , with pepper spicing and mild funk. It is bright, but this brew has issues, in that it’s somewhat muddled, more bittering than you’d like for the style, and lacking in the proper finish line I’d prefer. Interesting, though

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours turbid bright canary with minimal white head. Nose is funky, hopcitric, with dry floral and white pepper notes. Tastes of funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, florals, white peppery spice, and a complex finish and mouthfeel. This is a great saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small bottle from Julio’s. Pours out with a super head so I had to let it settle a while. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. A cloudy light yellow color with a frothy white head. Peppery-lemon aroma and flavors, with an earthy sweetness (from the raisins?). Very smooth drinking and otherwise enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a big, thick, white rocky head. Aroma is earthy with lots of fleshy raisin notes. Flavor is oddly sweet, lots of raisin sweetness up front, some bready malts and brett notes. Quite sweet, actually. Medium bodied with a coating mouthfeel, somewhat flabby carbonation. Just too weirdly sweet for me.
