1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle (375 ml). From Russ, thanks! Split 3-ways.
Appearance: Murky orange-ish with a small white head and little to no lacing.
Aroma: Fecal matter (not in good "farmhouse" way), rotten peaches and solvent.
Taste: Sweet and sour in the worst way possible. Rotten peaches, fecal matter again, quite acidic and garbage.
Palate: Medium body. Soda-like carbonation. Lingering rotten finish.
Overall: Other ratings for this one doesn’t seems to be from the same beer so we probably had a really bad bottle, but this was an automatic drain pour. Absolutely disgusting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml botlle courtesy of Josh. Pours a murky amber color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is big with Belgian yeasts, mild spices and some barnyard funk. The taste is subtle with white fruits, mild spices, and more yeast character. The palate was thinner than I prefer and the carbonation was prickly. Finished short and dry. Overall: Decent saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Bottle from Superstar Beverage - Huntington, 9/30/14
Aroma: The nose is yeast and spice mostly with a pretty decent amount of funk as well
Appearance: Pours a murky orange color with a small, sheeting white head that leaves plus lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty funky as well, not much sweetness, lots of spice, and medium bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it is fairly smooth on the mouth, somewhat creamy, with a mid-dry finish
This is definitely one of the funkier Saisons I can recall trying in recent memory. Overall, I thought that the flavor combination worked pretty well here, and the components all seem to mesh nicely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle shared at RBSG up in the presidential suite. I saw Biebers wanted one, and I had to deliver the goods from Ohio. Pours a mostly clear, deep gold with a white head that settles into a ring. Notes of farmhouse funk, bready malts, orange, melon, apple, soap, spice (pepper, clove), and straw. Maybe some banana, too. Light-bodied with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, watery mouthfeel. Leans sweet for my liking, but not bad.
