3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Medium dark golden color. Frothy white head. Yeasty spicy nose, modestly hoppy. New world take on this style, which usual results in a poorly executed beer and this is no exception.

Draught at Craft&Romance. Surprisingly boozy one, well the abv is not exactly saison-like, some lemon and apple notes, peppery hops which don’t really do it for me, quite a disappoinment really. Not sure if it’s import realted but just doesn’t do it for me...

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of wheat, canned corn, grass, hay and a lot of coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Very assertive wheat flavours with a big malt profile, some subdued sweetness from honey, grass and a little funk from the yeast. Aftertaste shows some honey along with bunches of coriander seed and not much else - not much of a saison at all. Overall, a pretty unassuming beer with no real good flavours nor complexity, especially for the style. I sampled this snifter on draught at the Brewpub in Chicago (Kedzie Ave), Illinois on 11-May-2016 for US$6,00 while here in Chicago.

Tap at C&R. Big classic saison yeasty nose. Lemon and biscuity malts. Overly sweet on the palate. Gets kind of boozy on the palate and through the finish. Some pepper and sweetness on the finish. Classic American saison: too boozy and too sweet.

Pours a cloudy pale gold with a huge white head. Not much aroma here, a little spice and not much else. Drinkable, but not my style.

With Z, pours a hazy dark rusty golden color with a white head. Nose is barnyard funk with a bit of spice. Taste is rather sweet , offset with spice and descent funk. Finishes on the dry sweet side with a moderately long ’ funky ’ ending. Nice ! Quaff Score 7 / 10
