3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light straw pour with low fluffy head with spotty lacing. Nose is apples, banana esters, chamomile, Belgian yeasts and cloves. Medium body with a watery mf. Some light carb. The tastes follow the nose to a T, but with some honey, and doughy malts. Very little spices. Nice clean drinking saison that tends towards the sweet end of the spectrum.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted on 6/5/13 on draft at the brewpub during a baseball trip with Adam and Taylor, and from bottle on several occasions. Pours hazy pale golden with a thick white head that leaves average, uneven lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with a soft floral aroma and some earth. The flavor is in the same vein, a nicely soft saison with floral notes and nicely integrated yeast spice. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long floral, lightly spicy saison yeast finish.

Bottle: bright golden/orange with ample white fluffy bubbles, looks like champagne. Big aromas of lemon, chamomile, earthy barnyard funk. The flavor is the same. It finishes with a hint of black pepper and esters, somewhat acidic. The mouthfeel is medium, with just a touch of syrup, creamy

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Overall a decent saison, but we've had better. Pours a bright yellow with a foamy head. Smells very good, herbs, bay leaf, citrus and lemon and chamomile. Taste is very floral to start with some rose and earthy notes. Overwhelmed a bit with lemon in the finish. Had in the bottle.

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.

750 ml bottle. Nice stuff, lovely warm afternoon saison. Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Clean saison aroma with a floral background. Taste is a bit sweet with the slightest bit of tartness. Drinks soft yet lively. Nice complexity on the finish.

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.
