4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I was just going to enjoy this, but the low review average confuses and upsets me enough to inspire a review.
Yellow-gold color with a creamy white head that retains well and leaves a nice spotty lacing. Smells of ginger, citrus zest, musty, earthy, spicy, and also somewhat floral. Taste is spicy up front while quickly moving into a bready taste with some citrus before moving into an earthy finish. Somewhat high carbonation with a medium body, but still a somewhat dry finish.

Herbal and sugar aroma with some coriander, lychee, and strawberry. Hazy dark straw coverd by lasting, white shaving foam. Refreshing woody bitter and dry base malt flavour with some yeasty esters. Apricot, strawberry, and celery accents. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, lasting dry bitter finish.

Draught @ Albion. Golden yellow with non-existent head, white ring at the rim, faint vanilla aroma with a hint of citrus, low carbonation, sweet taste with slightly bitter ending, thin body, medium finish with light bitter aftertaste. A bit watery but still nice.

5oz on tap at the Ei8ht Ball. Up front, pleasant floral, kind of grassy hip aroma. Saison yeast. Touch of strawberry. Clear golden color. Thin white head. LEaves good thicker sheets of lace. Nice pink peppercorn type spiciness. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet, some reasonable spiciness. Tasty saison, though just a touch peppery.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. 3 fingers of head that laces nicely. This bottle is 14 months old. The nose is sweet and grassy, the taste is spicy with junk enough barn yard funk. Very enjoyable beer. Could use a tad less spice to be great.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a hazy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is great! Lots of fruitiness with a big yeast ester. Flavor is lemon juice to start then comes a dull wheaty malt followed by some bitterness and spice. The bottle says this was bottled in Oct 14 so it may be a bit old, maybe I would get more hop is fresher. Still the aroma is great and the flavor is also not bad at all. Nice almost lighter that usual saison.

Draft at the Bridge. Pours yellow with a white head. Leaves a ton of lacing. I can’t say I’m getting much on the nose. Definite bitterness on the tongue and the finish. I do wish their was more barnyard and/or funk. Not really feeling this one.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a light gold-straw color with a hazy appearance, little bubble activity, and a good-sized foamy white head with average retention, cling, and lacing. Its zesty aroma featured lemon, straw, and grass, along with some pine and floral notes and a touch of spice and grain. The taste was a blend of lightly sweet fruity flavors and a bit of citrus with a more-powerful floral, grainy sour taste. The mouthfeel was somewhat subdued with lower carbonation, but it felt somewhat heavy and thick in the mouth nonetheless, with a dry character and body. Thank you Tom and Tracy for the Xmas present!
