3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle thanks to lukaduke. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent copper with a big frothy white head of foam. The aroma is more spice forward than anything. I get notes of nutmeg, wheat, oats, cinnamon, and caramel. In the taste I get a spice forward sweetness. Fairly bread, or doughy. Some musky qualities as well. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Decent, but that spicy quality, which I assume is mostly due to the rye used, maybe even some of the oats, it just doesn’t do it for me.

22oz bottle pours a hazy amber color without much head. Labelled as an amber saison but has some sweetness to taste more like a triple. Taste of marmalade and belgian yeast.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mikkeller SF. Hazy gold - huge white head. Big estery yeastiness on the nose: plenty of earthy euro hops in there, slightly musty. Taste is great saison mustiness, light citrus zest, earthy hops, bready malt. Medium dry finish. Good stuff - taking a leaf out of Dupont's book, not too much new world hop craziness in here, just a solid estery trad saison.

Bottle. This is a really nice saison with lots of grain flavours crossing over.

Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Softish palate, semi dry. Interesting and drinkable beer! The malts are lager like but with strong rye spice. Trace of wheaty malt. Nice mild bitterish orange on the back end. Wheat beer orange. Carbonated sting in the tail. Very quaffable.
