Very delicious saison with accent on hoppy grapefruity push, but always keeping balance with decent caramel malty background, bit wheat. Some yeastiness.Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness, quite dry finish.
Refreshing and highly enjoyable

Excellent lightly fruity nose, great citrus notes in the taste. Excellent balance of sweet and just a tiny touch of sour. Great beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pulling from memory: nicely rounded farmhouse ale without too much of any one note...maybe a touch heavy on the citrus soda, but that’s a good thing to me. Not too much hay, funk, or cheese flavor, just enough to give it a wildesque ale taste. Refreshing. Not a pounder, but you could easily put down several in a session.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very slightly hazy golden color with a creamy meringe like white head. Aroma is yeasty citricness/ sour mineral with some spicy phenols. Flavor is sweet spicyness with just a balancing touch of lemony sourness. Gentle spicy/ sours aftertaste. Medium palate, tasty and refreshing. Solid medium strenght saison.

Thick head. Champagne like bubbles. Starts off a tad sour but ends like fine Belgian. Not my favorite but a decent beer.

It poured a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of a typical saison with Belgian yeast and some citrus orange peel. The taste was citrusy saison with Belgian yeast. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear pale, orange-ish pour with white head, moderate retention, spotty lacing. Aroma: oranges, marshmallow, banana, laffy taffy, green apple. Taste: somewhat sweet, fruity, short crisp peppery finish. Palate: medium+ body, lively carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: pretty nice for an 8% ABV 12oz-bottled saison. A little sweeter and bubble-gummy fruitier than my favorite saisons, but nothing really objectionable about it.
