4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Bank Street. Spicy floral citrus aroma, reminds me quite a bit of rose geranium. Clear golden with a large white head. Just like the aroma, the flavor was very rose geranium .. spicy floral citrus, with a light malty backbone. Light body. I found this unique and very enjoyable. Glad I got a bomber to take home.

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,.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle purchased at Crown Liquor in Indy by suggestion of friend a hazy gold with a thin white head.
Aroma is grass, lemon, black pepper.
Flavor is most unique blend I have consumed in long time. Got the Belgium bread here. Sweet lemongrass (think literally eating it) and a finish of strong black pepper. Fresh clean feel here to palate. Would have never purchased this beer it I read the reviews here. Instead went on faith of friend and was happily surprised I would like such a blend.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with a half inch off-white head that didn’t stay around for too long. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like honey/blue agave, lemongrass, citrus, apples and some peppery spice. The brew tastes like honey/blue agave, peppercorns, lemongrass and some citrus. I liked the taste of this brew more and more the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and smooth with low carbonation. I think this is a good overall brew, I liked it.

22 oz bottle, not a ton of carbonation left, though it wasn’t flat. Poured an opaque orange-brown. Smelled almost-flowery, maybe some rose in the scent. Flavor was very sweet and nearly syrupy, had a very thick mouthfeel with a bit of the flower flavor as well. I don’t know where I got the flower from. Enjoyable.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber: pours dark, clear amber with a little white head.
Aroma is powerfully floral and sweet...Roses.
Taste is rose, flowers, spice, agave, yeast.
This is a very different beer.
Slightly peppery, sweet tea.
I’m impressed....and not sure how to adequately describe it. Shrubber said "citronella"...the more I think about it, I do believe he’s right...a slight waxiness to it....beeswax?? whatever, I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is lemongrass, appearance is a clear honey color with a 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is very good. I pick up the saison characteristics, lemongrass, mild sweetness, and a slight corn like finish. Palate is very good. A great summer beer. Just drank my bomber with my wife after a long day outside. I definitely recommend to give this a try on a hot day. Make sure it is very cold.
