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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Medium yellow with a slight haze and a frothy white head. Grainy bread, banana sweetness, Belgian yeast, light fruit, and a touch of tart sourness. The tartness is very light, Iím not sure this would qualify as a sour ale.

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.
