3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler shared by GT. Pours a hazed pale golden color with a white head. Aroma is disappointing based on their other beers. White pepper, banana, apple, bread, and a hint of lemon zest. Maybe some yeast and orange. Flavor is kind of bland. Bread, lemon zest, white pepper, and banana. Cracker malt, yeast, and apple.

2L growler from belgianthings on BA. Traded heavy for this beast. Pours a low haze golden with buttermilk, thick, large foam. Nose is sweet apple, esters, banana. Some white pepper. Taste is juicy, savory melon, some peach. Chalky palate. Not so great. Vastly disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at City Beer, pours a hazy pale golden with a medium creamy white head. Nose is like a traditional rustic farmhouse ale, with loads of rustic spicy notes and some moderate barnyard funk. Flavour isnít as impressive as the nose, but this is still a high quality authentic saison, with very rustic notes, low funk, and Belgian yeast. Nice and dry, with a very rustic mouthfeel. Great stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Seanís Tasting (Ann Arbor, MI). Pours a gentle hazed golden bright hue, touches of sunfire and frothy whitish head atop. Frothy layer stays ok sized, laces ok. Aromas present gentle tartness, bread, and straw. Mellow wheat, some yeastiness, touch of vanilla, citrus and mellow ester. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch of body in the middle. Bready, a touch toasty, straw. Some yeastiness, apple, some gentle tartness. Middle is a bit sweet, bready and doughy, touches of fruit and mellow earthy hops. Backend is a bit tart, vanilla, apple and subtle pear. Some citrus, yeast and straw. Mellow vanilla, almost a creaminess. Finish is a bit wheaty, fruity, vanilla and estery elements, touches of melon and straw, gumball and yeastiness. Not bad, a bit tart, a bit sweet at times for me.

750ml growler in a tulip. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some banana/clove notes, some pale and light caramel malts, light grains, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A cool beer but a little too Belgiany for me.
