3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose definitely has some of that saison funk to it - yeasty and slightly sour that definitely conjures up images of the farmhouse. Taste is decently sour without any residual sweetness. Feel is a bit thick and slightly heavy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Split this one with Hopswagger.
Half of a 750 ml bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip glass.
A - Pours a hazy golden orange with 1.5 fingers of white head.
S - Floral hops, lemon and orange citrus, dry chalky yeast, orchard pears, apples, and bright stone fruit. Straw dust, there’s a musty but clean damp basement aroma going on.
T - Orchard fruit-pears, apples skins, stone fruit, tangerines, earthy grass, wood, spicy musty yeast, the sweet pale malt quickly dries out on the finish.
M - Soft effervescent carbonation, medium bodied, dries out on the finish.
This was better than I expected. All the flavors played their part. It was fruity, musty, and dry. This is worth seeking out. Wish I had another bottle.

A little to light for my liking when it comes to a saison. Still well done with a nice tangy citrus flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Pours orange, with a big, pillowy, off-white head. Apricots and apples up front, with some notes of herbs, biscuits, and black pepper. The flavor is very sweet and citrusy, with a very faint sourness in the finish. Light to medium body, dry, and lightly astringent. Overall, this is a good, refreshing, and tasty saison. It lacks some of the complexity I’ve come to expect, but still, not bad.
