3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at pro pig, waterbury. hazy bright gold pour with a very nice creamy white head offering good retention and strong lacing. honeyed and spicy pale maltiness, peppery wheat, sweet crackers, very fruity - berries upfront, peppercorns, spices and other bitter herbs, citrus and ginger - zest, hint of honey sweetness and candi, phenolic traces and other belgiany angles. average carbonation, light body -oily and fairly creamy - perhaps less creamier and more carb would enhance drinkability, although it finishes relatiovely dry and grassy-spicy-citrusy. interesting offering.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured hazy, amber/copper golden with an easy forming head. Awesome grassy, earthy, resinous hopped nose along with yeast spices. Tasted great. A nice yeasty saison with an added hop character to kick things up a notch. I love Sorachi Ace hops and they work so well with this style. Soft mouthfeel was a nice start for the grassy earthy tones of the hops. Could drink this stuff all day.
