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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Served a clear golden-orange with a thin finger of white head. The head fades fairly quickly leaving behind some nice lace.
S - The aroma is mix of corn, grain, light malt, and a touch of yeast. There is just a hint of earthy hop.
T - Starts out with some light citrus with some grain and corn. Through the middle, some malt comes through with some yeast esters and a bit of bread. The finish is a mix bread, grain, light citrus, and a touch of earthy hop.
M - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and very crisp and refreshing.
D - Very drinkable. Very nice session ale. It is fairly light bodied but does not feel overly empty or watery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Chris & Meredith. Bottle. Extremely pale hay color with a macro-looking white foamy head. The aroma isn’t too different than a macro either -- sweet and malty. Finally, this DRINKS not too unlike a macro, but with a much more finessed balance -- subtly fruity, simply malty, and refreshing. (#4432, 1/7/2012)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to GT2! A really interesting hoppy saison, sort of like an APA, with great notes of herbs like rosemary and sage, lemon, spicy noble hops, grass, dough, and biscuit. Much like a pilsner, but really well done. Good stuff.
