3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Pale gold lasting white head. Saison aroma with some hop and some citrus. Slightly fuller and less soapy than the spiced version but as Ken says, it may not be quite as interesting as the spiced. I did like the pepper in the other one. The orange and lemon are muted, there, but not dominant. Good hops again, but I liked the spiced more. Wow Ken and I agree on a beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Pure white head, nice golden appearance. Banana and bubblegum on the nose and a fat whack of wheat goodness. Quite lemony but the citrus is not crazy strong. Salt and lemon rind, taste comes through when it warms up a bit. A bit lighter than I expected, but tasty.
