3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citrusy, fruity and peppery aroma and taste. I would have preferred this one a little more drier than it was. It became a little overwelming instead of refreashing like a saison should be.

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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared in NH. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is rather sweet, bready, sweetcorn, candy, popcorn, light spice, hay and straw. The taste is crisp, lightly bitter, sweetish, sweetcorn, light spice, bread and icing sugar with some sweetness on the finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Too sweet for my liking. Found the sweetcorn vibe off-putting after a while. Not for me...
