2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle, clear and golden. Had large head that dissipated quickly. Aroma not as strong as other farmhouse ales. Taste is smooth with a balanced body. Not a bad saison.

Bright, cider-like, refreshing, clean and crisp. Not too hoppy; not too malty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. Clear, orange-gold with a small ring of cream. Aroma of mild spice, papaya, dry cracked grain, lightly funky white wine cooler, wax and apple core. Flavor seems to fluctuate somewhere between awful and good with each gulp. At alternate times I taste rust, fresh apple cider, grape bubblegum, cardboard, a nice touch of earthy spices, white pepper, mango, resin, and sharply bitter wood pith. Light-medium body is drinkably watery, well-balanced and has medium carbonation. Lots of flavor here, just a bit disjointed at times. I guess by "Spring Provision Ale", they mean this is supposed to be a biere de garde. If I see one still hanging around in February or March, I might give it another try and see if some cohesiveness has developed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold pour with a white head. Nose is earth, spices, light yeast, and herbs. Easy on the palate, heavy spice, florals, coriander, and a clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a decent cheddar orange with a lively body and a nose of honeyed grass and light straw. Flavor is a light mixture of spicy hay, morning dew spiked with light rose, and a touch of honey. Average mouthfeel. I like this beer; it’s light, refreshing, and reminds me of a Hill Country spring morning. Mission accomplished.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy pikapp327. God it’s been too long. Pours a clear gold with a white light head. Aroma is grainy, hay, farm and spice. A little zesty. Flavor is pretzel, straw, and a bit weird. A bit smacky flavor. Refreshing finish but stil dry.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from pikapp327. Light yellow pour with little to no head. Aroma is weird and grainy. Taste is just slight sweetness and almost like corn chips. Weird finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear pale straw pour. White light to medium head. A little lacing. I notice fruity yeast in the aroma first quickly followed by the citrus and earthy hops used. Highly carbonated. Flavor is also yeast to start. I get cloves and banana. A slight metallic taste. Followed by hops briefly and winds down to a sweet malt and fruity yeast finish.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very light pour, with a white head - not appealing at all.
Aroma is malt and alcohol. Very clean, slightly sweet, no bitter at all, a little sour. Thin body. Nothing much to the palate.
