this was a very pleasant surprise, pours hazy orange/yellow witha thing white head, smells of fruits pears along with some hop aroma and some funkyness. Taste is amazing, starts out a bit sweet fruit then moves on to a bit of tart and then something a bit funky

22 oz bomber into a Sam Adams glass. Very pleasant golden hue with a nice white head and quite bubbly. Aroma is fruity, sweet and slightly skunky, but in a good way. Upon taste I get the saison yeastiness with fresh fruits and malt/corn foundation, but mostly a very light foundation. Hops are present and welcome. A solid Saison from a damn good brewery; thanks SO!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bomber. Pours a hazed golden color with a medium, fading white head. Aroma of bread dough, citrus, mild lemon, some earth and hay notes. Flavor is quite hoppy and bitter, mild earth, some fruit and doughy malts. Fairly hop forward for a saison. Medium bodied, effervescent carbonation, finishes dry and bitter. This is nice.

Nice floral piney aroma with that Classic Belgian yeast nose. Would like some a tighter carbonation. Bitterness hides the 8.3 well.

On draft. Fresh aroma that’s really grassy. Bitter juicy and crisp flavors. Grassy piney hops that linger on the tongue . Bitterness hides the booze. Decent 8/3/7/3/16

Draft at Jerry’s SO Event. Darker gold with modest, frothy white head / Deep, mellow nose of citrus, tropical fruit, honey, soap, violet, clove / Full body, sweet, syrupy, and somewhat cloying, fruity, big hop bite and bitter finish underneath / Muddy flavors of cut pine, orange peel, grapefruit, honey, soap, clove / For me, a very clumsy effort by this fine brewer.
