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.

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).
