ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
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.

Bulk_Carrier (3632) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 22, 2016
On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill. This was poured into a long stemmed taster. The appearance was a hazy bronzed burnt yellow color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Semi-messy lacing. The aroma starts off with some sweet citrus, fresh cut grass, then some peppercorn turning into some lemon pulpy sweetness. The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned aromas and sweetly combined. Nice sweet to spicy aftertaste with finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with nice crisp semi-sweet feel to it. Carbonation runs light. Peppercorn hits just righ in a balanced harshness Overall, really nice saison that I would have again.
