2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark reddish-amber; very dark for the style especially. Humongous off-white bubbly head; almost disturbingly huge and bubbly. Super sweet dessert-like aroma, like sweet cake and icing and super sweet fruit with pretty solid lemon and some yeasty esters. Insanely and annoyingly bubbly to the detriment of all other attributes it may possess related to palate. Sweet, fruity and semi-spiced flavor. Pretty not good. Rank really.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
All floral and herbal, dang! Smells like a flower garden. Looks nice with a deep golden/amber hue and a yellowish-white head. Finishes malty with all kinds of flowers mixed in with chocolate and barely malt biscuit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear deep amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Floral aroma with citrus and malt notes. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal yeast, slightly funky lemons and toasted malt. The finish is fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Specís - Holcombe, 4/22/14
Aroma: The nose is heavy spice, plenty of pepper, coriander, lots of lavender, and some yeast
Appearance: It pours a gusher, murky dark orange color with a thick, frothy beige head
Flavor: The pepper is a little less overwhelming in the flavor, but it is still very present, the lemon zest comes through a bit more, thereís a big lavender presence, and some other spices as well
Palate: The body of this one is medium, it has a spicy/tingly feel, and a soft, dry finish
I found this one to be pretty interesting for sure, but also pretty weird. Thereís a lot of spice and a lot of lavender here. I mean a ton. Also, it pours out almost a gusher, with a huge head, but somehow isnít overly carbonated. Weird stuff. Worth trying, but weird for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
D&Q Mini Mart, Houston 650ml: Pours a sort of hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, a bit funky, and a little sweet and malty. Of course, this is a summer ale, and it seems as though this got a little maltier with time, but the saison flavors were still pretty strong, and I would argue that the beer didnít suffer for it. The spice, flowers, and citrus are all in effect, coupled with a nice hoppy dryness.
