3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with the label notched at September 2011. The pour is yellow with a delicate upward bubbling carbonation. Banana, orange, and apple on the nose with a smooth yeast sensation. The body was lightweight. The taste had a sharp dryness feeling. Though it was generally on the mellow side.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Light notes of grain, lemongrass and faint soap. Head is large fizzy, white with fair lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear gold. Flavor is moderately acidic to start, and finishes moderatley acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A drinkable Saison, it just doesn’t go far enough into what the style should be like.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very odd......how did such a rarely rated beer wind up in a new bar in Tupelo, MS?!?!
That being said....this is my favorite style and this really let me down. Pours a cloudy gold without much of a head. Slight aroma, vegetal, yeast, and light citrus. Tastes like someone poured a hefeweizen (My least fave style) in a saison. Very esther-y, wheat, and lemon. Very light bodied.
The first saison to hit the state, and meh......not going back for more.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Crisp sweet citrus, toast and wheat. A bit sweet and earthy, pepper and yeast. Musk and crisp wheat on the finish. Decent enough.
