3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Chuck’s.
Hazy yellow pour, nice white head. Soft yeasty aroma with a bit of fruit--apple? Such a gentle flavor: just the tiniest bit sweet, a slight bit tart, dusty but not powerfully so, again the apple, floral / chamomile. Extremely drinkable and full of flavor for 5%. Tasty stuff. Perennial continues to impress.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Lawson. Pours a pale, effervescent straw, lots of fluffy white head. Aroma dry, floral, slight barnyard character, some coriander/spice, too. Body light and fluffy, with a sweet, slightly tannic floral/dry aspect to the finish. Nice, but not earth-shaking.

Appearance for this beer is nothing special small cream colored short-lived off-white head, no lace, And a hazy amber color. Aroma is nice, malt, yEast, floral. Flavor is in the traditional Saison vein although it's a little sweet and the chamomile predominates. Body is good. Finishes bittersweet with emphasis on the sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy blonde with a ring of foam. The taste is shockingly chamomile, which works quite well in a saison. The problem is a nascent astringency that makes a big quaff unappealing. Good, but probably not a repeat customer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep honey golden lightly hazy, persistent fine creamy ivory foam, lots of honey aromas, tropical fruit, banana, lots of floral esters, finishes lightly tangy, acidic. Lots of dissolved co2, medium body. Alcohol looms. Wonderful, weird, yeast is burly in non elegant, non floral direction.
