3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours hazy pale golden with a very nice and resilient white head, showing some nice lacing. spicy and toasted grains, sweetish caramel, very fruity - melons indeed, and packed with fruit oils - for instance citrus, grapes and pears, pepper, honey and golden candi, flowers. lively to average carbonation, light body - oily, short grassy-spicy finish. tad too sweet but nonetheless an interesting offer if not only for showcased hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a bright cloudy amber gold. beautiful head that subsides to a cap.
Aroma: Sweet citrus note, spicy yeast a slight toasted malt.
Taste: Spicy belgian yeast, banana esters, juicy citrus.
Mouthfeel: Prickly fizz juicy full bodied.
Overall: I love the concept and subsequent execution. I’ve never been a fan of the “Belgian IPA” because its usually overly sweet/malty for my liking. The dank nosed Saison however is right up my alley, with the bouquet of hops and dry earthiness of the saison yeast character.

Pale yellow, 2 finger head. Loads of peaches and sweet sugars and a bit of leather funk. Taste is clementines and a very dry finish. taste isn’t as sweet as the nose. Chewy for sure with sticky resinous qualities

Superb saison. Imbued with more flavor than the typical saison, and further seems to be spicier than the usual saison. The hoppiness plays a secondary role here, imparting a slight bitterness and perhaps dryness at the end that are unusual for saisons. Recommended! A-

On tap @ RnH. Aroma is big lichi and grape followed by grass. Appears a glowing apricot with a small white head and minimal lacing. Taste includes notes of pear, apple, very subtle hop bitterness and citrus zest on a crisp finish. Enjoyable light carbonation with fruit flavors lingering.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 shared by Nick... thanks! This stuff is expensive! $18 for the bottle, yikes. Pours a brilliant yellow gold that is slightly opaque with a great head. Smell is tiger piss and very slight citrus. Tastes much better than it smells with some hoppy character to blend with the citrus and slight spice. Not worth the steep price tag.
