3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours a clear, saffron yellow-orange with a pillowy, bright white head. Aroma is of bright lemongrass up front, followed by musty banana, cloves, and vanilla cookies. As it warms, the banana esters become more pronounced. Mildly sweet flavor that grows slightly in intensity as husky wheat, slightly sour lemon peel, and dried grasses simultaneously come to the forefront. Finish is of dried straw and mild yeast, a combination slightly reminiscent of sourdough bread. Moderate-to-high carbonation that is quickly fading. A solid saison.

I’ve had real Saisons’a from Belgium and France, and I must say, of all the American styles I have tried as well, this one comes closest to the real thing.

Golden pour with a fair white head leaving a drape of lace. Very yeasty. Earthy. Fruity. Lemon. Orange peel. Banana. Grass. Fairly spicy. A tad sweet. Low bitterness. Pretty dry. Medium body. Good all-around Saison. I may not necessarily seek it out again, but I like it.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful bright clear golden straw pour with good, but quick fading, white head. Nose is lightly citrusy and yeasty with hints of clove. Flavor has a slight hop bitter bite which is added at the tail end. Fairly refreshing, but a little thick on the palate. Maybe could use a touch more carbonation? Pretty good though.
