4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Easily my all-time favorite saison. Has a fruity apple flavor onstead of the typical dry metallic taste. Light and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden body with a big, frothy head. Aroma of ear wax, plastic, clove, toasted grain, spice, lemon, wet cement. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning syrupy body, lively carbonation. Like a watered-down Golden Monkey in some ways. Very little funky yeast attributes in the flavor. Light peppery taste with clove. Fairly unclean.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spicy aroma. Highly carbonated with a rocky white head. Very tasty. Despite the high carbonation it has a smooth mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour cloudy with a lot of head. A nice taste of hops but a little too bitter. Overall a decent ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Standard, middle of the road, not over the top are the kind of adjectives I’d give to this saison. Aroma is some banana and wheat like esters. Taste is somewhat sweet, some wheat, faint spice and banana notes. Finish is very clean.
