4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at beer dinner. Light golden pour with thin bubbly head. Aroma citrus, light yeast and florals. Flavor well balanced sweetness carried by spice and floral. Medium body. One of my favorite Saisons. Not too bitter, not overly floral. Clean finish that begs a return.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice saison, not the most unique, but smooth. Pours an average clear orange with a white head. Smells very citrusy, with some lemon. Taste is creamier then most, with lost of lemon, and some Belgian overtones. Ends herby. Had on tap at Sugarbush.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Doughy yeast and bubblegum esters are followed by light tartness in this bready Saison.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy yellowish amber.
-Mouthfeel could be drier, to my tastes in the style.
-Spicy hop bitterness balances out the finish.
-Prickly bubbling enlivens the body.
On tap at the brewery taproom.

Tap at Grill Next Door. Pours cloudy white gold with a white head that clings. Aroma is wet dog, banana, a touch of cider. Flavor is light, some banana, wheat. Just a touch of sourness in the finish. Would be a good summer beer.
