3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Orange appearance, orange peel and toast aroma, the palate experience is totally different with aromas of butter popcorn and pepper for the finish. It is smooth and a little creamy but the pepper finish is soft and lingers for awhile. This beer is a little weird and kinda throws you cause the nasal aroma is so different but I enjoyed it overall.

Draft at BXL East. Pours hazy orange amber with a big, foamy, slighlty off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is strong of oranges, other citrus fruits with some notes of pineapple. Taste is peppery and spicy (coriander) with notes of yeast, citrus pith and grass and a bit of sweet caramel malts in the finish. Pretty drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great pop when pulling the cork. Hazy golden color, with tight two finger white head. Decent carbonation, but not as much as some Saisons. The aroma shines, honey, pear, apple, green grape, a little yeast, a little hay, not much spice. Taste is delicate, on the sweet side, very little spice or hop presence detected. Goes down easy, don’t taste any alcohol. A good, but not great Saison, not big enough flavor, wanted more spice and funky yeast, but still a decent beer overall.
