3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A soft semi-wild floral Saison. Pleasant session beer.
How: Tap at Vermont’s Brewers Festival 2009
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Pleasant semi-wild aroma with a floral twist. A lot of cereals with a wheat sensation makes for a nourishing example of the style. Taste blends a some fruity notes (pineapples and apricots mainly), floral/flower notes and a little barnyard/countryside wilderness. Semi-dry floral finish. This is not a tasty beer nor is it very wild. Of course this is no true Belgian Saison brew but I found it both sustaining, highly drinkable and superior to their regular Saison. Nice session beer. An accessible Saison. Especially when sitting a few inches away from your glass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden/straw coloured beer. The aroma is very nice. Fairly rustic but quite fruity as well. Softly spicy with a bit of clove. A faint wheaty nose with a light crackery malt sweetness. Straw-like and grassy with a light lemony finish. A bit of light apricot but fairly dry nonetheless. Lingering fruity spiciness.
