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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very pale, bright golden yellow color with a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lace left behind. The color is a little lighter than expected but there’s good retention/lacing.
Bland, slightly earthy aroma that takes a while to open up. Faint hops and peppery spice along with bread, yeast, biscuit and light fruit esters. Hints of apple, banana, pear and white pepper.
Medium body and a bit more interesting than the aroma suggests. Tight carbonation and strong peppery spice presnce up front that lingers over earthy hops, pale malt and crisp light fruit into a dry finish. Pepper and clove along with resinous pine and earthy grass. Pale malt along with subtle funky yeast character. Pale biscuit malt with hints of apple, pear and cider. Crisp, light and easy to drink but not all that exciting.

Sample at GABF 09/26/2015, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy pale yellow-gold color with a medium thick white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of herbal hops, yeast and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of peppery yeast, fruity hops and malt. The finish is fruity up front with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ BBB. Pours tiny hazy yellow with a small frothy white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly malty, slightly fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic with crackers, freshly baked white bread, ripe pears, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, tiny sour, fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic. Mouthfeel is crisp, sparkling, tiny dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and tiny sour with crackers, white bread, lemon juice, baked pears, marzipan, white sugar, hay, dry soil, mineral water, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Solid sparking champagne-like saison. Enjoyable for now but a bit too peary to revisit often.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly and visible carbonation. Aroma is very Belgian yeast forward with a good amount of light fruits backed by a touch of sweet grains. Flavor has a more of a grassy note with some sweet fruits, lots of Belgian yeast and a touch of sweet grains.
