4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like fresh grass and flowers, lots of them being tossed in the air. Makes me think of spring time (which was fun because I was enjoying this in the cold of winter). The color is golden. Taste of flowers, pink roses, and a little honey. Delicate texture and lingers nicely on the palate. This is a very interesting style, and I enjoyed it very much. I would love to have this in the spring with a nice salad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
