2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Cloudy yellow with lace. Malty, lemony nose, spicy and thick. Lemony, spicy, herbal flavors, sweet and thick, not very pleasant at all. Too sweet and thick for a saison, and the herbal flavors are also too much. Yuck.

On tap @ Bailey’s Taproom, Portland. Pours hazy yellow with a creamy head. Aroma is yeasty with hay, coriander and herby spices. Normal body with soft carbonation. Flavour is quite sweet and yeasty, with some nice fruity tartness and lemongrass, as well as notes of peach. Finishes off with grass, hay and lemon peel to make an easy drinking summer brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
crappy boiled egg, funky lemongrass nose. Over carbonated light body. Not remotely represents a Saison. Weird and not that pleasant. You gotta be joking if they really think this is a Saison.

The best thing this beer has going for it is the appearance. Poured with about an inch of bright white velvety head. Aroma is soft, flavor is unimpressive albeit drinkable and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl can from Drinks of Fulham, London. Pours clear golden with a short lasting white head. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is very zesty, barnyard yeast, smells like a saison. Some floral elements too. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet. Sweetness lingers on for a while. Pretty decent actually, better than I expected. Light to medium body, average carbonation and long finish.

Cloudy yellow color, frothy but fleeting white head. Lemon and yeast aroma. Fruity body, easy drinking, dry finish w/ a hint of sour candy. Not stellar, not bad.
