On tap at Appalachian Vinter. Pricey- went for the half pour which, thankfully, was 1/2 the price. Super delicious. Pours a murky, dirty orange with an average head. Definite apricots and citrus on the nose. Beautifully balanced with tons going on- citrus, sour, funk, barnyard, grass and definitely apricots. Perfectly tart at the end. Really refreshing. Loved it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks for this long time want! Pours a cloudy golden with a thin white head that diminishes into a rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits, spices and some perfume or at least flowers. Taste is fruity as well, a little citrusy and full of white wine impressions. Body is medium, carbonation too and mouthfeel is vinous. Overall a pretty nice saison, I could drink a lot of that!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (500 ml) bought @ Craftshack. Split 5-ways.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden with a small bubbly white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Apricots and plum forward along perfume notes, light sourness, grass and farmhouse notes.
Taste: It’s as fruity if not more than the aroma with juicy apricots and there’s less perfumy presence. Light sweetness, light tartness and mild spiciness.
Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Lingering fruitiness.
Overall: Very good fruited Saison that showcase the apricots while keeping an interesting farmhouse character. Good balance between the fruits and the sourness. The perfumy presence on the nose in the only thing that I don’t like that much about this beer.
