3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma was musty with belgian yeasts, melons and soap. The flavor, like the aroma, features musty melons saison yeast, soap and bread. The palate is light and the carbonation is lively. The finish is long and dry. Overall: Decent saison, very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draught at the Horseshoe in Hampstead. I initially sent this back, as I thought that I had been served the wrong beer. It was incredibly pale yellow, almost white, and I was expecting something more golden in colour. the barman went to the cellar and checked that the correct barrel was connected. So I guess the beer from this batch is just much, much paler than advertised. It has a good white head, pleasant lemony aromas and an intriguing taste. There is lemon (from the yeast?) and flavours of lime and grapefruit. There also a slight sourness, giving a hint of the barnyard, and a slight bitterness. An interesting a highly drinkable beer.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours pale yellow gold with a white head. Aroma seems citrus with funk hints. Med body or nearly. Flavor is yeast, earth and arguably citrus. Very light hints of barnyard. Good saison. Excellent, even.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like bitter beer, hops, and tropical fruit. Taste is pretty much the same. High sharp carbonation with a good amount of foam.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Daily Growler UA. The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium fluffy ivory white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of tropical fruit, grassy hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, slightly funky fruit and biscuit malt. The finish is fruity with a grassy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BRKLYN Larder. Pours a dusty matte brown with a quick to diminish white head. Bubblegum nose (carried through to taste) starts things off, imparting mild funk and lemon. Butters up on warming. Medium to light body that plays on the sweeter end of the spectrum without losing its brightness. Key lime pie and orange rind. Light pepper. Flavors work well together. Complex without being difficult. Clings to the gums. Good, but lacks a defining note.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 13 2015) Pours very cloudy medium gold with a huge dense white head of foam. Aroma lime, earthy barnyard, a little sweet wheat malt and orange, sour acid hints, white pepper, floral. Palate is slightly sweet, light tart and mostly dry. Flavour of lime and other citrus rind, a little bit of orange juice, light peppery spice, wheat. Brett funk and earth towards the finish, wet hay, grains, faint hop bitterness. Lightish body with high effervescent carb. Not a hoppy saison in the American farmhouse sense, but the lime Motueka character works really well with the base. Very refreshing and pretty flavourful, it is an excellent everyday beer that would be perfect for summer BBQs.

Funky, slightly sour wit-ty aroma. Squat 12 oz bottle. Very pale blonde, foggy, snow white head. Pleasant, effervescent, zippy, biotic, cookie-ish. Very lightly sweet, citrus pith, spicy. Funk lingers into the sourish finish. Pretty decent. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.
