3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear medium amber with a long-lasting white head and swaths of lace. Taste begins with malt and biscuit that grows sweeter through the palate, finally allowing a touch of hops bittering to bring things into balance. A full-bodied saison, exceptionally well done.

Another fine "New Albanian" brew that I purchased from Liquor Direct in Covingron. KY - Yo, this is a most berrycentric blonde (I knew a lady like that before).. it’d a good beer, just not my taste and style,.

Copper with n white head. Aroma was mainly orange. Taste was flowers, bread and tea. It reminded me of a dryer sheet. Not bad, not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, floral perfume, light fruits, herbal notes. Flavor of herbal tea and light fruits up front followed by a very bready finish. The sweet agave is pretty faint here, doesn’t overpower the beer. Plenty of herbal/floral notes abound. Interesting and tasty saison.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from quenholly. Thanks! Initially a very floral and perfumey scent with some honey, straw, and lemon dishwashing liquid following. The color is amber-gold and a thin head develops on top when poured out. Very minimal lacing. Sweet citrusy flavors (probably the agave), some wheat grain, honey blossom, and the soapy lemon also noted in the aroma. There’s a little peppery bitterness in the back end that’s a welcomed contrast to the sweetness. It’s a bit too sweet overall though without much funk at all. But definitely not a bad beer.

Nose is coriander, floral hops and citrus. Taste matches scent, lots of coriander and an earthy finish. Smooth beer, would be great on a hot summer day.

Bottle courtesy of the brewer. Pours clear orange with some soapy head lingering around the edges. Nose lends pepper, grass sweet malts, light lemon notes, blend of purfume and fruity esters. Flavor is spicy and the lemon and pepper really come out. Medium light body and a clean dry shirt finish. Drinkable and interesting.
