3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Odell’s. Appearance: orange-yellow color, small white head, good lacing, cloudy. Aroma: citrus, apple, cherries, a little yeast. Palate: light body, lively carbonation, dry, champagne like texture. Taste: heavy sweetness up front, followed by a mild sour in the middle similar to bing cherries, finally a very bitter hoppy ending that seems to last forever. Overall, I have mixed emotions about this beer. Very unique for sure, and it definitely grew on me as I drank it, but I feel a taster is enough for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz picked up at Brewforia Meridian a couple nights ago... Pours with a pillowy white head... the brew is hazy light orange.
Aromas are sorta all over the place... bubblegum esters.. along with a little clovey phenolic notes... plenty of fruitiness reminds me of underripe pears and throughout there is a good smack of grassy hoppiness.
Light banana sweetness ester... a bit of peppery essence... a sorta sharp pear note combines with the hops to allow for a long finish..
Body is a bit thicker than a standard saison.. and the carbonation tries to keep up but loses out IMO.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lemon-y tart citrus aroma, with subtle earthy yeast. Citrus flavor, lemon tartness. Gets a little sweeter in aftertaste--but still a really dry beer. Yeast flavor: Earthy, almost champagne-like, and maybe a tiny bubblegum flavor. Light but nice grainy malt, and a subtle peppery flavor from hops and/or yeast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #3,000. ~12 oz goblet draft at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a half inch white head. The aroma is a fresh and lively orange citrus hop, along with soft wheat malt grain and a Saison Belgian yeast character. The flavor is a nice balance between clean Saison flavors and a fresh orange citrus. The palate is medium to light bodied, bright active carbonation, and a dry finish. Really tasty stuff.
