3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, June 1, 2013. Pale blonde, thin head. Aroma of spicy wheat and barley, slightly sweet. Taste very dry wheat, a little spicy, slightly bitter. This is not the king of savory saison.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow with a fruity and musty nose. Flavor is a touch sweet, but not to bad. Fruity (sweet citrus, melon, fleshy fruit), musty, a touch of pepper, spice; I don’t care for the finish. Medium light to medium body, decent level of carbonation. Just fair overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s and shared with LeninCat. Gl ass to mouth. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with an off white head. Potpourri, bubble gum, white pepper, tropical fruits, and lemon zest in the nose. Quite a bit going on in the aroma. Medium body. Somewhat sweet. Banana, pear, bubblegum, and mango flavors. A bit gooey. Lightly spicy. Some banana in the aftertaste. Body is a little gooey and the esters are a bit heavy. Ok. LeninCat ticked this @ 3/5.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Peppery spice and fruit nose. Somewhat tart to start with some aroma flavors. Dry lightly bready toasty. Not big on the style, boring to me, mostly pepper and citrus in character. Fairly tart and crisp. Orange and lemon citrus probably.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hints of fruit and spice, but quite a bit of eathiness as well that leads to a very dry and trashy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazy gold - fairly effervescent - nose moderately tart grape skin, musky peach skin, light phenolics (pepper), some tropical esters - flavor is litly sweet up front, but a tartness and acidity arrive quickly to balance - white grape and peach - moderate phenols late - gets a bit spicy, actually, and the bitterness and peppery character get a touch abrasive - lingering tropical sweetness in the finish - a little rough, but much more enjoyable than I anticipated.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially caramel and cinnamon - kind of an apple pie like quality (pie crust included) - with a touch of yeast. This turns a bit tropical near the end with notes of banana and pineapple as well as cloves and pepper. It pours a lightly hazy, oily orange-yellow color with a thin, white, fuzzy ring. There’s a light surface dousing as well as a touch of lace on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium / medium-light bitter blending. It’s a slick textured, medium-full body with a light, fizzy - almost flat - carbonation. It’s crisp, clean, and dry. The flavors are mostly tropical fruits with caramel and toast. The finish is spicy and waxy with a light wax aftertaste, but clean and light.
