4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Served a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head faded down slowly leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of big farmhouse yeast, hey, pepper, coriander, other spices, lemon peel, and some citrus hops.
T - Starts off with a mix of lemon peel, farmhouse yeasts, come citrus hops and some spices. Through the middle, the farmhouse yeast gets stronger with some more spices, some pepper and lemongrass, and a touch of ginger. The finish is a mix of farmhouse yeast esters, lemon peel, spices, and a touch of grains.
M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a citrusy and spicy finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced farmhouse ale with some good complexity added by the extra spices.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Golden amber beer with a cream colored head. Spice and malt aroma. Malt and spice flavor with earth. Medium bodied. Spice and malt lingers with light yeast and light earth. Nice - more spice phenolic with just a few esters.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Beer Revolution. It pours a very clear golden color with a decent white head. The aroma is very floral and soapy with some clove. The flavor is dry and floral with a bit of clove and nice subdued bitterness in the finish. Very dry and drinkable for the ABV. Well done.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fairly average saison. Not much smell, and pours a flat light brown. A definite peach taste. Too fruity for a saison. Not bad, but not very good either. Had on tap at Marin Brew.
