3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An okay saison. Nothing exceptional, and the lack of a substantive yeasty farmhouse kick is a bit of a disappointment. Tropical fruitiness, some mild hoppiness. Tried with Nick at the brewery in 2012.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap a beautiful, slightly hazy golden - not much head, but that must be an artifact of the pour. Malty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone and a woody hint. Satisfying flavor is yeasty, malty and woody with a hint of - hmmmmmmm, cloves. Could that be a whisper of butterscotch? Anyhoo, a very tasty brew. Good texture has a fair amount of fizz, leaving a tingly, malty, slightly woody finish. This is definitely a sipping beer, for savoring while chilling on the porch - or watching a football game.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly murky pale yellow color with a fizzy white head. Lemon, grass and sour yeast aroma. Sourdough and lemon-pepper flavor with a musty finish. Well carbonated with a light to medium body. Not bad but probably not something I would have again.

Bottle. Pours a crisp, clear hay with a rather fluffy white head and lots of tingly carbonation. Nice spicy, slightly funky aroma immediately. Taste is crisp, spicy, and funky. Doesn’t really stick around much and definitely gets a little...not as good as it warms.
