3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at OBriens. Clear golden amber pour, with fluffy white head. Bread, rough grain, straw, light lemon grass, banana sweetness, and finishes with light tartness which is a bit strange. Decent and enjoyable, but not a fantastic saison.

Hazy blond colour. This is rather gassy. Thin light body with a flavour that is a bit too sour and also bready/yeasty.

On tap at the brewpub. So-so saison, certainly displaying white pepper, coriander, and yeast. Not a lot of inviting spices, however. Quaffable. Blonde coloured body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a growler. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy with a light mineral note, a hint of apple, and a peppery note. The Taste is dry and earthy with a bit of pepper. The finish is dry and earthy with some light apricot. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A pretty solid American Saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice citrusy aroma. Flavor is also citrusy, with nice hints of lemon. A it of funk on the finish, which is to be expected given the style. Not bad.
