3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Pours a pale straw body with a minimal wispy white head. The nose is very light, just a little hay and some light yeastiness. Flavor wise, it’s pretty light and bland with some light wheat and a touch of floral hops. Light bodied and very thin with soft fizzy carbonation. Not much to say about this one, it’s very thin and watery, though I suppose that’s what they’re going for here. Meh, I could pass on this one again.

interesting brew. a hay/straw color. Bit of a grassy smell. Taste is a bit grass, a hint of citrus maybe, a bit of a weird aftertaste, but overall it was okay.

This one poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was grass, straw, pale malt, light funk. Flavor was very dry and mild, but clean and fruity and highly drinkable. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Wheaty base, light lemony citric notes, hints of grain, and some faint tartness throughout. Super clean, crisp, and easy drinking. And $10 to fill a growler. Giddy up.

Hazy straw colored with nice carbonation. A little funk and fruit on the aroma. Flavor is dry with a light fruitiness and very light hoppiness. Very enjoyable light saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Al’s of Hampden. Pours a hazy neon yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, apricot, peach, apple, tart wheat malt. Flavor of light wheat malt, light fruits, just a touch of sour apple but it’s pretty subtle. While the aroma is very fruity, sweet, and a touch sour, the flavor is light, with emphasis on the malt as well as lightly fruity/slightly sour notes. A very refreshing and drinkable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden.
A - Pours pale, hazy yellow with a fizzy one finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down parts of the glass. Looks like a wheat beer, a bit lighter than a normal saison.
S - Smells of fruity saison yeast, bready grain, black pepper spice and a bit of grassy hops. The saison core is strong, but not overpowering, from start to finish.
T - Starts off with some soft, chewy malt quickly giving way to the fruity saison core with a good amount of peppery spice. Finish is a little chewy with some lingering spice, leaving the palate dried long after the finish. It packs lots of flavor in a small package.
M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, slightly spicy feel with a bit of chewiness at the end of each sip. Super easy drinking beer.
O - A very nice table strength saison. It packs all of the flavors you want from a saison yet it’s only 2.5% so it goes down super easy. I could drink a few glasses of this on a hot day no problem.
