Bottle, pours gold with a white head, sweet taste with fruit, malt, and yeast, has a little spiciness to it, more carbonated than I expected but it does not take away from the beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours gold with light lacing. Aroma is wheat, bubblegum, alcohol. Flavor is Big bubblegum upfront, clove, mild banana, some medicinal/herbal stuff, and a bit of astringency. This is not what I think of when I think of saisons, but is good in it’s own right. Must admit, I was thinking of Walt when I drank this, so there’s that.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy orange/gold with a three-fonger rocky white head that stuck around a long time and left decent lace. Bright tropical fruit and pepper aroma with bandaid, barnyard, yeast, grain and lots of spice. Mild citrus tartness accompanied by leafy, grassy and earthy flavors, honey and sweetness and a hint of biscuity malt. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml poured into a tulip-- This is my first Saison, so here we go. Pours a light golden with a big head. Nice sweet smell. Sweet tasting but not citrusy. Ok, maybe a little citrusy. Bubbly in the mouth with a nice flavor. Turning 18 in the early 80’s with the beers we had to drink, if you had said that I would be drinking something called a Saison and liking it you might have got smacked upside the head. I don’t know if I’ll drink many beers of this style but this is good.
