3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
En kraftig og sammensat saison. Frisk og tung, sød og syrlig. På mange måder en dejlig øl!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from Central Market, 8/21/13
Aroma: The aroma is has some fairly heavy spice, Belgian yeast, and some fruity notes
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a huge, gushing, fizzy white head and frothy lace
Flavor: It is spice-fronted, with some light funk, and the fruitiness playing a background role
Palate: The body is medium, it has a fizzy carbonation, and a dry, tingly finish
This is a pretty solid saison. The ridiculous amount of carbonation hurts the drinkability. The spice is definitely the predominant component of this one, and it could probably use a little more balance, but overall, it is a tasty beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. An unclear, yellow beer with an orange hue and a white head of moderate size. Fruity aroma with citrus peel and saison yeast. Orange. Peppery hints. The flavor pretty much the same, quite bitter, and quite dry, with a light funky hint. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Long citrusy finish with pale malts and a peppery hint. Finally a nice American saison. 130817

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Pours out a bright golden shade with a large white head. Aroma leans towards lemony citrus, grass and funk. Tastes of apple, honey and slight sourness running throughout. Strong cabonation. Tasty but didn’t live up to my expectations.
