3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden color, fleeting head. Aroma of flowers, perfume, white pepper and a little funk - they say there’s brett in here. Light-medium bodied with plenty of fruit in the middle, apricots and golden raisins. Not dry or sour finishing as you’d expect. Still, really tasty and well made.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Slight hazy orange appearance with a mostly dissipating head. Aroma of mild banana, herbal hops, bready malts, light fruity esters and light spice. The flavor adds coriander and orange peel with moderate malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Medium body. Slightly above average for an American saison.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Hazy blonde with a short white head. Yeasty banana esters and ginger ale, green apple, doughy yeast... The whole effect is more like weizenbier than saison. No phenols, malt is muddled, green apple and banana yeast character is basic and borders on unpleasant. Pretty uninspiring saison.

Brilliant clear golden under a thin lacey white head. Estery nose of banana and barn hay and pepper and more hay. Very estery flavor of barn yeast and hay with plenty of tart tree fruit and lots of dry estery clovey dough.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at the brewery - light gold with a very slight haze - I was excited about this, since it is sub-6% - however, it falls pretty short for me - tastes sterile - it is dry and crisp, with very mild peppery phenols, but otherwise it tastes like dull grains and yeast - very neutral in flavor - just yeast, grain, and light peppery character - meh.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden in appearance with a small white head. Doughy, yeasty, coriander, grassy, somewhat musty, and floral aroma. Taste is green apple, honey, a touch of clove, banana, yeast, and dough with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A really solid saison. Lots of aroma with notes of yeast, banana, citrus, and a tiny bit of funk. It finishes solid with a nice dry finish that begs for another go. Really enjoyable.
