1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
It looks nice, the aroma is alluring with wheat and fruit. The first milliseconds have nice texture and frothiness. The problem is the flavor. Bright but still unpleasantly bitter. Then comes the cough syrup kick. An intensely powerful combination of strong, wholly unintegrated flavors, with some really unpleasant elements, all on kind of a thin frame. And Iím a big fan of saison, geuze, and lambics. I poured most of it out and drowned my sorrows with a New Glarus Enigma.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from mariís. Pours hazy orange with a large white head. The aroma has some funky raspberry scent but little else. The taste is artificial raspberry drink and a rough finish.

Sampled at 4 Hands. Kind of champagne in color with an off white head. Raspberries in the aroma and even more in the flavor. Very easy to drink. Pleadant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured an deep red/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of malts and slightly fruity with just hint of raspberries. Taste was malty upfront with a light raspberry flavor in the background ending with a moderate hop finish and slight syrupiness. Mouth was good. Overall, not a bad saison by the folks at Point.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Undated 12 oz bottle poured into a Belgian snifter 7.2% ABV.
Pours slightly hazy, orange-amber with a hint of pink. It is briefly topped with a bone-colored; this soons dies away but some lacing still occurs.
This raspberry saison has a relatively refreshing, complex and fruity nose. There are notes of orange peel, pepper, raspberries and other red berries, caramel, and hops. The taste starts quite sweet but this is partly balanced by some tartness and hop bitterness. Raspberries are evident in the flavor too, but this is also more yeasty and herbal than the aroma. Lightly spicy and moderately fruity. Medium-light bodied, this saison has a bit too much harshness.
O: moderately sweet, barely funky and quite fruity, this is a very drinkable and refreshing saison, but one that would probably not fair well with larger quantities than a single bottle or pint.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat, mild raspberries, yeast, light herbal notes. A bit thin and certainly not saison like. Next.
