3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells good, tastes kind of peppery. Drinks super easy. Gets a good mark for style points, though there’s nothing groundbreaking here. I suspect that was the intention of this beer. Might be the first time I’ve had a saison from a can. Didn’t bother with putting this to glass other than to inspect the appearance. Pounding this 4 pack like nobody’s business. I’ll most likely get this again for school nights, like this one. $10 a 4 pack is a little unsettling, but it’s good enough to be worthy.

Can from Milk and Hops-Chelsea. Clear gold pour, bright, frothy white head and some nice, drippy lacework. Peppery yeast, other spices, grass, earth, and some funk/hay. Flavor is right on rustic Saison, lots of spice and earthy flavors. Grassy too. Very similar to the aroma. This is a really nice example of the style. Lasting spice and a nice tingle on the tongue. Just a quality beer, what else really needs to be said?

Pours crystal clear golden with a huge fluffy head. Some pepper, corn and orange peel in the aroma. Quite a complex flavour. Some sweet corn flavours, some pepper in there, a little lemon curd and a very slight tartness. Perhaps a little too sweet to score highly though.

Van from Brewdog. Pours cloudy weak golden with a big creamy snow white head. Aroma of lemon zest, yeast and weak pepper. Taste is crisp, fresh citrus, weak sour, with a good malty body underneath. Grassy and peppery dry finish. High carbonated, nice enough.

Cloudy blond color, small head. Earthy aroma, manure, mild spices, nice. Spicy yeast flavor, light fruity esters, but also light sourness and mild vegetable feeling.
Not too bad.

Draught at John Scott’s Linné on July 16, 2016.
Slight bit hazy straw yellow to pale golden color, small white head with lacing. Acidic, banna, spicy taste. A tad sour, spicy aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness. Acidic, spicy scent.
Not very enjoyable to me, happy I managed to order a smaller pour.
