2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep hazy golden copper color with a small half finger of foam that settles out very quickly. Aromas are toffee, grass and a big malty a touch of spicy booze. On the palate its a lot of the same with a very low carbonation, a bit heavy on the mouthfeel, and a very caramel toffee malty backbone that carries the fruity spicy yeasty saison flavors but keep them tucked in and the never really shine. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, corked and baled. The baling on the Marble 750s is always a little sloppy and tends to cut into the fingers a bit. Pours a murky medium amber with a loose whitish head and spotty drips of lace. Fruity nose, lots of pear and banana. Creamy medium body, carb could be a bit livelier but isnít bad. Oranges, pears, and bananas on the mid palate. Mild white pepper finish. Bit of an odd duck.

Drunk at Cotteridge Wines very very good beer sampling party. Tasty saison. Saisons both intrigue and confuse me. Iím not sure why, thatís probably because Iím confused.
