3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden amber pour. The nose is softly spicy and a little bit fruity. Some soft peppery nose and a touch of light malt and sweet fruit. The nose is a little bit fruity and somewhat sweet but the palate is lighter than the nose would suggest. Light bodied and fresh with a decent palate. A bit light and lean. Some light crackery character from the malts. Nice.

Bottle poured into glass. Not sure how many hop forwards beers I’ve had from RR, maybe 2, but this is a great easy drinking hoppy beer. Nice floral hoppy aroma, same goes for the flavor. Not sure why this is under the saison category.

Pours a cloudy gold with a white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of hoppy grapefruit, grass, some malt and yeast. The flavor is light, with some hops and malt up front and a slightly spicy middle and mild finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: light malts, hay, notes of pear and apple, bread and yeast notes. Pours a hazy straw color, white head with average retention, excellent lacing. Flavor is very refreshing - light fruit notes, with pear and grapes coming through, also some apple. Bread, yeast, honey, and light malts, also some hints of spice. Light body, medium carbonation. Very nice session brew.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bytemesis for this trade. This pours a not quite clear yellow with a small quickly dissipating head. The aroma is a light citrus and a bit of hay. Has a nice balance of bitterness for the style but is more sweet. The mouthfeel is light and with average carbonation. Overall a good drinkable summer beer but doesn’t really stand out. I’ve seen sources that say this is fermented with american and saison yeast but this comes out cleaner like an american beer, almost lager like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Armin’s post-Scott’s Summer Saison tasting. Thanks so much Scott! Clear golden appearance with a white head. Fairly soapy/floral, lightly funky, lemon aroma. Light lemon zesty, floral, soapy, grassy, grainy flavor with a dry, grassy flavor. Not bad but not all that interesting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - pours clear light golden with a 1 finger white head. S - floral, notes of citrus, corn, grains, light tropical fruit. M - light beer feel. Airy clean and much like a light beer. Lingering bitterness. T - honey, floral notes up front. Lager notes, grains, orange, coriander on the palate. Very light on the palate. O - a micros take on a macro beer. Disappointing. 5
