Color is a hazy golden yellow with a med white head. I smell fruits, yeast and malt. I taste all of the same with spice, a little banana and light hops in the finish. Very good saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. A hazy orange color with a thick, bubbly, lasting white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, oranges, apricot, spices and hops. Oranges, lemon juice, white pepper, clove, and coriander. Heavy carbonation adds body to a juicy beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A corked bomber pour into a tulip glass. Appearance is a hazy golden orange. A short white head dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma is typically Saison – funky, earthy, like a damp cellar. Flavor is the typical banana and clove from the yeast, but with some fruity sweetness like apple, pear and peaches, balanced nicely with a dry finish from the hops. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Very prickly on tongue from carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, no date.
Bright golden in color, not pale, yellow hue, pretty clear. Average white head.
Rich belgian fruity esters, pears, apple cider, residual sweetness, burnt sugar (I think of carpet).
Great herbal, noble hop finish. Very smooth drinking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from AA. Belgian estery nose with some peach and green apple. Boozy on the palate, with a slight watery mouthfeel. Some spice and more fruit. Overly sweet and boozy. Really not very saison-like to be honest...more of a Belgian strong ale. Disappointing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold with medium white head. Aroma of spice, yeast, butterscotch. Taste is bitter hops, pepper, stone fruit. Good saison but not great. Very similar to Boulevard Tank 7.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is spiced with bitterness, and the flavour is dry and bitter with good warming spices. Overall a nice Belgian style beer.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery. Hazy, murky and headless. Orange peel, cayenne pepper, some cookie dough aroma. Sweet and fruity taste, a little yeasty bitterness, pear too. Full body, very carbonated, fruity finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy golden. Aroma of fruity esters, yeast, a bit of spicy phenols, and a bit of alcohol. Sweetish flavor, fruity, yeasty, with a spicy hint and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied.

A good, straightforward saison. Golden, cloudy with a slight carbonation. Good yeasty flavor with a touch of orange and a dry finish.
