3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber color with a medium white head. Fruity aroma, apples and pears, frosting; some spices, pepper as well. An even mix of fruit and dryness with this saison, maybe a little too sweet at times. A well-made American saison.

Pours a golden body with a medium head. Very nice and a little funky aroma. Well balanced and very nice farmhouse taste with tones of hay and such.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: lightly hazed light yellow, with a thin, quickly vanishing creamy white head. Aroma: nose of yeasty esters, citrus, banana, light funk, uncooked pie crust, clove, banana, and a whiff of herb garden. Taste: extremely sweet, with strong notes of banana, orange, and vanilla cream over a lightly peppery yeasty note which includes clove; then there’s some light floral honey notes and a hint of dried herbs. Finish: surprisingly dry, with that herbal sage note shucking and jiving in the background under the slowly fading yeast. Notes: Definitely on the sweet side for a saison, with some straight up hefeweizen characteristics. Then the sage comes out, really drying the palate. Alcohol was extremely well hidden.
