3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
20th May 2011
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of oats, grain, honey, nuts, stone fruits, floral hops. The taste is honey, caramel, bananas, other faint fruits, lightly bitter finish. Actually tastes EXACTLY like a snow cone flavor I got down the block from my father’s house back when I was seven or so. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from The Hop, 10/12/12
Aroma: The aroma is Belgian yeast, fruity notes, a little spice, and some fairly mild barnyard funk
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy orange color with an off-white head and some light spots of lace
Flavor: Tastes much like the nose but the hops come out more, it is fairly yeast, lightly bitter, and lightly funky
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty good mouthfeel, and a lightly spicy, lightly dry finish
I actually quite enjoyed this one. The nose is fairly Belgian yeast/typical Saison, but the flavor adds a touch more of a hop balance. Overall, it just works pretty well, with a nice, drinkable feel. I liked it quite a bit. Another nice job by Pretty Things, (and happy Friday).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from May 2010. Pours clearer golden amber with a decent off white head. The aroma is lighter than expected, some sweet wheat notes, no spice at all, and a bit of dry grapes. The flavor brings some dry grape notes as well with a sweeter finish. The body is medium, easy to drink for sure, good for the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a nice red/amber with a lasting white head. Soft dusty aroma. Taste is just faintly sweet but very quenching. Slightly juice like, but very easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Moderate grain and cereal for the malt, lemon and orange juice for the hops, sweet dough and mustiness for the yeast, with honey and light spices like coriander in the background. Head is off-white, frothy/creamy with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear amber. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic to start, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little slick and has a lively carbonation. Both refreshing and flavorful is what makes this a tasty Saison.
