2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Moderate body, adequate mouthfeel, slightly ambivalent flavors, dry with some evidence of hops, lacking the robust fruitiness and spiciness and funkiness and fun of a proper saison. Bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is funky yeast, malt, saaz hops. Taste is surprisingly like a Pils with a decent yeasty finish. Good, satisfying mouthfeel. Good overall, but nowhere near the best Saison that I’ve had. Tastes like an overly yeasty Pilsner.

Hazy lemonade with a nice white head. Bready, sweet spices, Belgian yeast aroma. Belgian yeast, spices, mild bitterness, mild malt taste. Not what I was expecting when I picked this saison up. Good beer

pale gold color, hazy, moderate carbonation. off-white head, not long lasting. aroma has herbal hoppiness, bit floral and spicy. flavor seems a bit too hoppy for the style. lightly sweet, but not a delicate beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks in-laws! Straw hazy lemon yellow, little white head. Pleasant lemony yeasty aroma. Taste is surprisngly quite hoppy up front, giving way to lemon and citrus note and a really zesty finish. Very enjoyable to drink with alcohol well hidden. So fruity/citrusy. Well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle- Pours hazy pale straw golden with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is bright and citrusy, getting some funk actually, barnyard, yeasty. The taste is yeast, wheat, grains, citrusy, mildly funk, dry bitterness in the finish, the aroma is slightly more enjoyable than the taste. Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. So much better than i was expecting, not sure why they discontinued it in the first place.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle from the fall variety pack; this was a 2007 Revival beer. Pours hazy gold with a thick white fluffy head with excellent retention; laces nicely. Aroma is bready, clove, lemon--pretty much what I want in a saison. Taste is trademark NB earthy, sweet and spicy; a note of earthy hops in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, just right carbonation. This is great. Why did they stop making this?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy yellow with a half finger of white head. Aroma is hugely yeasty with some lemon citrus. Taste is light bitter, follows aroma. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Cool.
