3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon zest, pepper, Juicy Fruit gum, dried pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A solid example...very bright and pleasant, flowery, toasty, lemon-zesty aroma, and good balance. Doesn’t quite have the magic that makes 4+ brews, but it’s close.

Pours cloudy dark yellow borderline orange. Descent finger thick white head. Nose is of spices and banana with some lighter malt notes as well as pepper. Flavor is similar but this beer is incredibly smooth. I’m not huge on saisons but this girl was a beaut. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange. Heavy foam bed resting atop the beer. The foam looks like it would hold a fingerprint. Strong scent of citrus and spices, mostly peppery. Flavour seems tamed, very drinkable and approachable for a Saison. Dry until the last sip which is shockingly sweet by comparison.
