3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at GABF 2013. Old fruit sugar nose of brown banana, pear, and red apple with dirty, earthy phenols and some noticeable alcohol . Sloppy smell and flavor, a basic mush of overripe fruit and banana esters and sugar. Yeasty and pasty, low bitterness, seemingly high sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy amber pour with just a slight fizzy head. Not a traditional Saison but does not fit another category easily. Amber fruit matched with some earthiness. Touch sour but no funk. Fuller body than expected. Also more hop bitterness. Lemongrass. Chardonnay. Orange peels. Celery. Nectarines. Cumin. Meyer lemon. Jalapenos. Tamarand and Starfruit (first time I have ever used either in a description! ) Interesting complex brew regardless.
