3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a first, 12.68 oz c&c bottle, hmmm looks like the RR and Lost Abbey bottles, have they been misleading us? Either way poured into a plastic hotel cup because I am in a hotel in Woburn, MA. Big pop of the cork with an all head pour, stupid plastic cup. After a few tries I get beer in there. Thick medium clarity dull golden colour (yeah, I am going Canadian on this one) with a pillow of cloudy foam. Thick ass lacing. I will take Dany’s line and say this is a "comfortable" saison. Its good on all accounts but a little too much esters, just a tad too sweet, at times a tad blunted as well. But the nose has a nice rustic character and pretty straight forward saison. But I am in Pretty Things country, so I need some more jena se qua from my saisons.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden body with a lacey white head. The aroma is of a soapy yeastyness and muddled European hoppiness with a denseness to it. Crystal clean body of cut grass, champagne, and stone fruit. Crisp stone fruit and yeasty finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Towering, dense, quite stable yellowish head over faintly veiled greenish-golden beer. Spicy nose, yeasty, citrus. Rather dull. BItter, some ureum, human sweat, snert, dull grains, spices and herbs. Finishes astringent. Dry; long lasting effects. Nope, that isn’t it - nothing attractive, nothing pleasing. Wouldn’t want to drink this during hard work.
