3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly spritzy propelling a citric lemony, and fruity melon aroma. Also some coriander and white pepper. The more golden side of copper with a beautiful fine bubbled white head. Sweet and drinkable with little hop in the finish. Can’t pick out much as far as yeast profiles -- to estery for me to discern. I’d be interested to revisit this beer done a bit more dry and with less in the way of fruit esters. There seems to be some compelling bits in the hay and what tastes to me like coriander but could be grains of paradise that might stand out more with this beer pared down as only New Glarus pares down.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed, light golden colored liquid. Tall, off-white head. Lightly sweet, pale, dry malt scents. Mild yeast, touch of cloves, and hints of tropical fruit. Sweet start, with a mild peppery spice bite. Hints of apricots and mango. Seems a bit chunky at times. A golden/saison mix. 7/12

Bottle thanks to Tim. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is pepper, Belgian yeast, and grain. Thin mouth, light spice, fruity malt, ginger, light dryness, very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of funky Belgian farmhouse yeast, hints of grass and lemon. Taste is more toward malt, slightly oxidized, not sure how this was treated or how old it is down here in Georgia. Not bad, sure it was better fresh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12 oz). From Rich, thanks! Cloudy golden/orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite fruity with grainy, honeyed sweetness and some spices. Taste is also fruity and grain with spices and moderate sweetness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Spicy finish. Not bad, but not easily drinkable/quenching and really nothing to crave for. Boring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smell is honey and generic saison smell. Taste follows the nose with a pleasant honey note. Good medium to high carbonation with light foam that compliments the honey note.
