3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Bill. Pour is hazed golden with a two inch white head. Aroma is peppercorn, along with malt wheat, and a tangy sourness. Taste is vegetal, along with the very mildly tangy sourness and a nice earthiness. Palate is medium, bone dry. Perhaps a bit over spiced, but nice enough and easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, capped and waxed. Thanks brian! Pours a cloudy bright gold with a dense and fizzy white head. Big sweet desserty lemon nose. Some white pepper in there but mostly a lemony tour de force. Creamy medium body with tons of lively fizz. Lemon, orange, and white pepper on the mid palate. Long white pepper and mineral finish.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 750 into a snifter. No dates on bottle. Pours foggy straw color with a TON of white fluffy head. Head dissipates after a couple of minutes leaving no lacing. Aroma of bubblegum, hay, lime and funk. Mouthfeel is medium and frothy. A little to frothy for me but otherwise crisp and spot on. Taste is slightly bitter from the Brett, but not overly so; actually, milder than what I would have thought. Funk, bubblegum, dry flavor. Very nice saison, one of the better ones I’ve had.
