3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Meadhall. Glowing golden body with a creamy white head. The aroma and flavor is a sweet pineapple laden saison. It was rather good, but Iíd wish it was a bit drier. Sweet palate, but not sticky.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a moderate white head. Nose has some citrus and sour notes in there. Taste is also fairly sour, but I get just a bit of a burnt element on the back end. Very odd.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle, bottled March 2012. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with an inch white head that stayed around for a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is nice, the brew smells like cloves, yeast, oranges, and an overall earthy/spicy aroma that I canít really identify. It tastes like citrus/citrus peel, herbs/flowers, grainy/wheat malt, cloves, bubblegum and peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, Iíd certainly buy it again in the future. $7.49 a bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 Bottle of the March 2012 batch from Kahnís. This could be the best American Saison Iíve ever had. Most Americans tend to have a hefty yeasty and sweeter approach. Jack DíOr is bone dry and nicely spicy with tons of citrusy suggestions. The aroma is like that of cheese with peppers, lemons and banana peel. Palate is sptrizy which suits the dry, lemony finish well. The balance and delicacy of this beer is commendable, it could go toe to toe with Belgians, though true to American style, Jack DíOr is a bit more aggressive in its approach.

Straw, cloves, a little fruit, alcohol is pretty up front for a modest 6.5 per cent. Not bad, but not great.
