Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Spicy and fruity aroma. Flavor is dominated by tropical fruit. Finishes dry with some bitterness. This is very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light fruity aroma, with hints of peaches. Very hazy straw color with a thin white head. Very clean taste, with a hint of grain and black pepper. Finishes very dry, light bodied and amazingly easy to drink. This is a very good saison, and I wish it was available around me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit and ginger connotations build a bright perfume for this otherwise doughy and lightly herbal Belgian-style Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam sits atop the bright yellow haze.
-White bread dough strangely takes over in the flavour profile, where one would expect more of the spicy citrus to take hold.
-The mouthfeel is comfortable, yet needs fluffier effervescence, imho.
-Overall, this remains a fun, very drinkable brew from beginning to end.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is an off-putting sick yellow with almost green tints to it. No head. Smell is sweet fresh grass, popcorn, hops, vinegar and yeast. Taste is somewhere between lager territory and like a radler maybe. Fruity, bouquet is there in the taste. Interesting, but no "my jam"

Nice yeast and fruit nose. Has a bright, clean white grape wine taste up front. Sweet and tart but not fruity. Very drinkable although it could be more complex.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Quite cloudy yellow to orange with a thin and soapy white head. Aroma of lemon peel, honey, pears, yeast. Medium bodied, good carbonation. Lemon, Juicy Fruit gum, banana, apple, light grains, mild hop bitterness. Just a little funky film that sticks around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured. Semi cloudy golden pour with almost no head to it. Aroma has a soft champagne like yeast with some citrus and grain. Flavor is on the dry side, soft lemon and orange fruit. Dry, yeast heavy, and fruit finish. Bit of a biting carb that lingers. Fun try. Not bad.

Golden in color with a white lacy head. Aroma is of lemon zest and pink peppercorn. Initial flavor is mildly tart with a generous amount of mixed fruity spices. Finishes clean and crisp.

12 ounce bottle for the hazy yellow with a small white head. Citrus and orange taste with a slight yeast finish. Great beer.
