From BandC. Shame to see such low ratings I quite liked this one. Lemony tart, a little funk, yeasty fruity and floral and quite refreshing. Bubbly and a little pepper. Serving: Bottle

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Overripe lemon and pear. Cloudy amber, thick head. Lemon and funk, musty pear finish, vegetal. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I misread the label expecting it to be an American wheat. Clearly, it is a saison.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Cloudy, gold color. Really huge head. I can see why this is called "Hay Fever". That’s what it smells and tastes like.....hay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.5oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered golden tan body. Mellow sweet corn-wheat aroma. Creamy, bigger side of medium bodied. Some deep saison yeast notes, from banana to phenolic high temp. A pinch closer than a lot of stateside Saisons, but still has a little but of a harsh, unrefined feel. The wheat does flesh it out some, but at the end of the day it still comes off as not quite there. Has a little bit of depth and subtlety, which is more than most "Saisons" can say.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.5 oz. looks like it was bottled in 02, 2014. Pours a foggy golden-amber with a lasting spit of bubbles. Nose is white grape, honey, wheat and pungent cheese. Flavors of white grape must, honey, tropical bubblegum and a squeeze of lemon are finished off with some bitterish wheat flour and funky yeast. Nice balance in the medium body makes for a fairly easy warm weather quaff. Medium-high carbonation is not what I prefer, but fits the style I suppose.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky gold, big, loose white head. Smells tangy and citrusy, with grassy notes in the background. Taste is pretty sweet - A little sweeter than I prefer, to be honest. Some flowery and perfumey notes, too. Some subtle funky and woody flavors, as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy straw. Aroma is yeasty...is that the Thiriez yeast I smell everywhere these days? Touch of grapefruit/lemon citrusy hop, dash of tropical esters, hint of pale malt.
