3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Ciceros. Quite hazy golden. The aroma is pretty much classic saison with that yeast and malts. This seemed to be dry hopped with a clean dry bitterness. A really nice version of the style with definite American aspects coming through.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of hay, heavy herbs for the hops, moderate barnyard and dried leaves for the yeast, with pepper and a hint of vinegar in the background. Head is huge, fizzy turning rocky, white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear light gold. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light, between dry and watery with a fizzy carbonation. A lot bolder aroma than I expected, and this Saison is more flavorful and refreshing than others I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Subdued banyard and yeast greet the nose while the eyes feast on a cloudy pale yellow pour with a non-lasting white head and no lacing. Bananna, citrus, and hints of barnyard funkand wheat grace the palate. Light body and crisp carbonation with a crisp dry finish. Overall, an ok Saison. I know I will enjoy the three remaining bottles.
