The beer is fairly hazy,appearing copper to orange hued with an off-white head. The aroma offers malt, sweet and sour apples, green, earth. Earth and mineral water character. Perhaps a mild tartness. Medium bodied, finishing dry with a hint of spice. Overall, this was okay.

Draft at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy golden, small white head. Spicy, fruity aroma with notes of hay, herbs, yeasty phenols and noble hops. Medium sweet malty, slightly astringent, peppery with a dry, medium bitter slightly metallic finish. Nice.

On cask at GTMW - Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Light spice on the nose, with some funk and a bit of fruit, most notably apricot. Taste is light fruit, yeasty goodness, and a light malt base. Smooth and well-carbonated.

Flattish amber golden pour. Smell is appa joose, candy sweetness, some banana, and black pepper. Taste is too sweet and malty with some more appa joose. Fair to not good.

22 oz. bomber, $10 at Square One, Chicago’s near South.Poured into a tall flute, it shows off a light amber or slightly orange body with thing layer of foam atop. Has a big malty smell with warming spices that I’m picking up at arm’s length while still wrestling with the menu. Taste is big malts with the expected esters of a warm ferment, The hop bitterness just slightly curls the edge of my tongue, and a note of fruit and funk thread through as well. There’s a yeasty outline in the taste too, even before I swirl in the yeast dregs form the bottom of the bottle.

Draft at kedzie. From notes. Malty and bready with a little apple. A little on the fizzy side. Decent, but not really my style.

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a light amount of haze to it. A small head of white foam on top. Aromas of perfume, floral hops and a dried grass note. Lively carbontion and nice lacing. Flavors of grains, green apple, tart citrus, acetic notes, grass and hints of black pepper. Dry and herbal finish with a pretty heavy body for a Saison. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a really nice golden hue with some haziness to it, well carbonated and has minimal lacing. The smell has some great floral notes, some decent spiciness with a hint or citrus/orange. The decent is really well balanced, minmial spice and mild sweetness and holds on really well. The mouthfeel afterwards mildly lingers with some mild bitterness and sweetness. Overall, this is really well balance of floral, sweetness, cirtus, spice, and tips the scales between a saison and potentially a triple.
