3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not great and pretty forgettable. It has some lemony and spicy aspects, but the finish is sort of off. I expected a crispness but the finish is slightly bitter and astringent. There’s better stuff out there.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pretty clear actually, nice gold color, pours with a large off white head that settles pretty quick
Aroma: bread, lemon, very faint
Taste: lemon, some bitterness on the finish, has a very slight tang to it,
Palate: lively carbonation, slight bitter aftertaste, leaves mouth dry
Overall: nothing really special about this beer in my opinion, not bad just nothing jumps out at me

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours to a glowing vibrant golden body with a foamy white head that mostly dissipates. The aroma is sweet malts with a blondie and shortbread type of cookie. Subtle dried corn husk. The flavor is shortbread and blondies with a dry hop and tangy silage. The palate is sweet but definitely not sticky. Like a blonde bock. I thought this was more springtime bock like than a saison, but it is definitely tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gushing even from a can. Not nice! The beer is dark golden in the glass, floral nose. The beginning is smooth, a bit sharp and fruity due to the saison-yeast. The mainpart is peppery, fresh, refreshing and dry. In the aftertaste smooth, saison-peppery and yeasty.
Nice try on a saison, but not sharp enough in comparison to an original Belgium beer. --> 10/12/11/10

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a hazy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is yeasty esters and a bit of citrus tartness. Flavor is more of the yeast esters with a bit of lemon grass and dull grain. It’s decent. You can tell they used a good yeast strain but it’s a bit thin around the edges, although the lacing really sticks to the side of the glass. A starter saison maybe?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours yellow / copper with a white head. The aroma has toasty malt, light saison earthiness, minor tartness, underripe fruits and some mushiness. It has a fairly light crisp body with lightly biting carbonation. The flavor starts with graininess, spicy / earthy saison notes, dry spiciness and light crackers. The finish is spicy and clean. Pretty decent and nice job for a line priced six pack saison.
