3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Disappointing saison from Maui. No lemongrass, pretty standard saison without any standout characteristics. drinkable but forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to my Secret Santa for this one. Murky yellow, thin ring of foam. Bready and toasty aromas at first, then nice tropical notes. Lots of citrus in the flavor, too. Mango, grapefruit, lots of juicy flavors. Some light funky notes in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coriander and honey notes in the aroma. Light yellow with effervescent carbonation but a small white head. More coriander and honey in the taste with lemony sweet and sour all over. A little too sweet for my taste in a Saison, but still a good light summer beer.

Clear golden pour with a big white head. Aromas of cracker, grass, and bread. Some peppery spice, yeast, and a touch of lemongrass and citrus. The flavor is a bit dry and lightly tart. Lemongrass, cracker, grass, and yeast. Some pepper, citrus peel, and bread.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can,pours a pale straw color. Effervescent at first with a head that quickly retreats. Mild lemon and grapefruit aromas. Laided back sweetness mixed with smooth tart lemons. Easy drinking. Not quite what I think a Saison should be. Needs more dryness and less sweetness. Still its very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was cloudy yellowish gold with fizzy creamy white diminishing 1/2 head, no lacing. Aromas are soft lemons, sweet pils malt, wheaty funky yeasts, touch of honey and spices. Taste are sweet malts, lemongrass, melon, orange, white grapes and pepper. Palate was soft tiny CO2 with light body, winey citrusy lasting smooth finish. A beautiful Saison with a nice mix of hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a really hazy yellow color with a small white head that fades to nothing. The aroma is sour lemon, grass, hay, and herbs. Ehh its ok. It’s a decent summer beer but I’m not overly impressed. I really respect both breweries but this collaboration just comes off as super boring to me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aluminum can from Sprout’s: Appeared as a dense glowing yellow hue that was completely opaque while a thick frothy layer of foam quickly retreated leaving the liquid naked without head. The aroma smells of true Belgian farmhouse yeast with touches of spice and clove, but I have not smelled lemongrass for some time now thus I have no immediate memory of how it smells. There is an herbal smell to this beer that sort of reminds me of chronic buds that have dried out. The flavor is mild with light notes of sweetness along with a taste of tart unripe fruit perhaps banana? The palate is silky smooth and goes down with only a minor notice of the carbonation. Okay beer and I believe this might be my first lemon grass beer—mahalo!
