I guess it looks fine for a saison. Other than that it sucks. Overly sweet and floral tasting. Like drinking candles or something. Not something i would recommend to anyone.

Bottle. POurs clear bright orange with a soft sudsy white head that fades to a thin film. Aroma is strong bread malt and booze with subtle sugars. Taste is more malty bread with subtle yeast and a warming alcohol sweetness. Palate is medium and warming with a dry heavy finish.

On tap at blue palms brew house. Nose is earthy, not much fruit. Flavor is pretty standard Saison--I'm not getting the eponymous fruit at all. Solid but kind of meh.

nah, way to sweet and fake fruit candy syrupy. Some Saison yeast characteristics come through later

A clear reddish orange beer. The aroma is dominated by the passion fruit as well as yeast, but itís not very pleasant. The flavor is fruity but slightly bitter with a medium body.

tap - Pours lightly hazy orange with a small white head. It has a fruity, yeasty, slightly funky aroma. The flavor is sweet with some mild, drying bitterness in the finish and a hint of farmhouse funk. Itís medium bodied and on the sweet side for the style. Overall it works very well and in my opinion is a little underrated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark orange with a thin light beige head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is sweet fruit, mostly pear. Pear, tropical fruit notes, yeast, some light barnyard and earthy bitterness after everything else. On the full side of medium. Finishes with mild sweetness. Not bad at first but less so as it warmed up a bit. Took a chance on this one and it didnít really deliver.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a thin white, medium duration white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is vinous, peach, melon, light banana/bubblegum, clove...taste is sweet melon, clove banana/bubblegum, honey, with light sweetness throughout....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds a pleasant foamy quality. This is a very rich sweet Saison. It is too sweet for the style, and is under hopped. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty thick mouthfeel and flavor for a Davison. It is not light and crisp at all. Taste is sweet with a little bit of tart citrus finish. Decent alcohol but wonít be having again.

Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass; Pours clear orange, thin white head, poor lacing. Nose is clean pears and apple, light estery yeast, tropical fruit, light spice. Flavours of pear, confused fruit, yeasty, estery, kind of disappointed in this one.
