Bottle. Pours gold with a small white head. Somewhat sweet aroma with light notes of hay, wheat and funk. Moderately sweet flavor with hints of earth, grass and light malts. Pretty bland but unoffensive.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Almost a finger of head on a hazy, orange/golden colored body.
The aroma is nice: banana, grain, lemon and nectarine.
The taste is watery with hints of banana and lemon. Too mild.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Not a bad beer but the taste could have more to it.

Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Has a banana, clove and Belgian like aroma. Flavor is nowhere as vivid as its aroma. Boring.

For some reason I didn’t think I would like this but it was a pretty refreshing beer. Just got finished with a workout and it really hit the spo!

Pours from the bottle a very pale golden with a distinct amount of carbonation and a medium-dense amount of foam. The aroma hints at a bit of sweet doughy pilsner malt, definite spicy yeast esters which come across as slightly bubble-gum and clove, also a very slight sweet floral hop aroma. Flavor is light pilsner malt followed by a sour and somewhat acidic tang. Bitterness is kept pretty low, and the dry finish is accentuated by the high level of carbonation. I wish I didn’t have to buy a 6-pack just to try it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color is a clear light gold with white head. Nose is an earthy sour with a hint of banana. Taste is the same with a somewhat creamy body. Lacking the complexity and fullness of many saisons, it feels like it tries the same roads but doesn’t go far enough down them.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of hay, grain, yeast and orange citrus. The flavor is not as good as the aroma. I get a ton of grain and hay notes, as well as a little bit of citrus and some yeast. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma has a sharp, fruity and slightly yeasty overtone. Pours a nice clear yellow with a thick but not persistent ivory head. Flavor is crisp and malty, subtly fruity and yeasty, not strong. Texture has average fizz and viscosity, though the tingle does persist a little. So-so overall, but fine for sipping on a hot day or while watching a ball game.
