3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
~12 oz draft at the Curry Village pizza spot in Yosemite, California. The pour is hazed golden yellow with a smallish white head. The aroma is herbal, traditional Belgian yeast notes. The taste is the medicinal herbal of the nose, with a bit of sticky sweet malt then the Belgian yeast carries the finish. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with low carbonation and an earth medicinal herbal yeast finish. Pretty typical American Saison.

Orange and lemon in the aoma, very fruity but a much better fruitiness in flavor than the hefe or summer session. Really an outstanding beer in my opinion. Smooth and creamy; a home run.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spring 2013 bottle thanks to TWalls. Pours with a hazed golden yellow hued body and a large fluffy white head with good retention and lace. Aromas are of isoamyl acetate, spruce, herbal hops, peppery phenols, light Brett and pine, medium malt, low fusel alcohol. Something a touch spicy that I cannot place. Flavors are medium malty, biscuity and toasty, mildly earthy, clean, crisp, some earthy and lightly nutty notes, low tartness. Decent saison. Easy to drink. Peppery, earthy, odd spice finish. Not bad at all. A bit of (at least perceived) residual sweetness in the finish.

Bottle pour hazy yellow. Nose of sour, clove, spice, tart fruit. Taste similar, with candy sweet and clove. Just a hint of sour in the finish. Taste like a Belgian, decent drinking, but not the taste expected for a wild.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma has yeast, light funk, grass, light tart character and hints of spice and fruit. The flavor more of a Belgian ale character and no dour notes. It could be a sweet saison as well. Did not meet expectations.
