Tasting at LUSH. Poured hazy yellow orange with light white head. Farmy banana funk aromas. Quite smooth balanced flavor. I like it.

22 oz bottle purchased from West Lakeview in Chicago. Poured a nice gold with minimal white head. A very nice spiciness in it, definitely not overwhelming but certainly delicious. I really liked this.

aroms is apricot/tangerine, salty sour peach and yeast. appearance is ultra hazy peach with blasting foam head and wicket lacing but low carb. flavor is initially fost nectarines then light sour/funky backend comes forward. yeast is not outright but influence is there. mouthfeel is similar foamy as appearance, thick and oxygenated despite low carb.

Tap flight at the brewery. Clear, dark golden pour, minimal head. Aroma of spice, yeast, and hops. Flavorful brew. Spice drops mixed with a mild hop background. Slippery mouthfeel. Nice .

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle from Treasure Island foods, Hyde Park, Chicago. Pours a hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is full of yeast, apricot, cloves, grass, and something from a barnyard. Taste is sweet at first, then spicy, and finally driy. Medium body with enough carbonation to keep the mouthfeel lively. A very good saison, made in the warehouse where I worked for 6 years (it was a computer recycling center before it became a brewery).

At GTMW. Decent saison with a good hop punch but a really weak finish. Not impressed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bomber served in a FW tulip.
A: Pours a clear golden color with light amber hues. A frothy white head forms on the pour and recedes slowly to a thin cap. Thick sheets of lace are left down the glass.
S: Musty yeast, some slight peppery notes with some peach fuzz fruitiness. There are some bready malts as well.
T: Definite yeasty must up front with an odd peach sweetness to it. Tastes like some concentrated syrup that goes into a snow cone. It definitely doesn’t give off pleasant flavors as it completely wipes out the yeast and would be even more sweet if it wasn’t for the cracker malts that slightly cut it.
M: Medium bodied with a slight sticky quality to it. Medium carbonation with a drying finish.
O: The syrupy sweetness in the taste was definitely off-putting and it completely dominated the other flavor components. Not that balanced. Nice on the nose. but not taste.

Hazy yellow with a nice head. The aroma is noble hops, some light spice, and yeast esters. The flavor is similar with with a slightly tart, somewhat sweet finish. Very refreshing, well done.

Kinda of a hybrid of a Saison and a BSPA. Whatever it is, it was very refreshing and wouldn’t hesitate to order again.
