3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz. served into a wine glass at ChurchKey. From notes.
A: Pours a golden straw color with only a small white film for a head. It’s not quite as hazy as I like my saisons to look.
S: I notice fresh apples, cherries, and some wheat. It’s nicely fruity - especially for 4% - nor is it weighed down by overdone yeastiness. So maybe the clarity in the appearance was for the best?
T: Drier than the aroma suggested. A fruity opening is very brief before spicy, herbal notes dry out the middle, leading to a white grape finish. Simplistic, yet satisfying.
M: It’s everything you’d expect from such a small saison: very light, dry, and easy to drink. Carbonation could be more lively, otherwise there’s nothing really to complain about here.
O: Compared with some of the masterpieces I had earlier today, this one fell quite a ways short. But for what it is? It’s pretty solid. I would entertain the thought of having it again, at least.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Positive Pie, Montpelier. It pours clear amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, spicy, ginger, dough, cereal and toasty grain. The taste is smooth, sweet, white bread, cereal, toasty grain, icing sugar and light source with a short, dry finish. Light - medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Too sweet for my liking. Still OK.
