Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a smallish head and splattered lacing. Smell is initially sweet with honey and floral. Taste is quite sweet of more honey and though I have never had actually flower water before I imagine it tasting much like this. Although good and refreshing a lot of my favorite qualities of a Saison are ate up by the sweet floral notes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy, yellow - orange, heavily carbonated with a thick and lasting lacing. Lemon, sour, and sourdough on the nose. All three of those come through in the taste along with a touch too much alcohol. The alcohol and the sourness separate and create two distinct tastes that do not play nice with each other in my opinion. A good beer but in small amounts. Not something I wanted more than a glass of at a time.

The pour is a crisp golden amber. Large white head, good lacing. Aroma is soft florals, some apple cinnamon. The taste is some of that same cinnamon with a bit of citrus and some bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is just great. Full and rich, but not at all sticky. It tastes like autumn, if that makes sense. It’s a subtle beer, great to spend some time with.

Pour is hazy yellowish orange with white head, aroma is very floral, with hints of some spices as well, mint, some slight biscuit, some honey, as well as a touch of tart lemon in there. Taste is nice and complex, notes of a mix of flowers that is pretty tough to describe but borders on a bit much, hints of slight spice, biscuit, some honey and lemon notes, finishing fairly dry and slightly tart.
