4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours translucent orange with a thick white head. Medium bodied and a crisp, inviting palate. Good carb. Citrus and spice aroma compliments a similar flavor profile, adding some bread and wheat. The familiar saison funk rounds out the medley.

From the bottle, first pours run very clear gold / deep gold, perhaps a bit darker and more than the stereotypical saison shade. Nose gives off tropical fruit, a bit of bready yeast. It comes alive, though, in the mouth, with phenolic notes that blend to a lovely rustic character, just a touch of barnyard that remains very rewarding and fun to drink. Wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wines & More Mansfield. Pours out a deep orange color with an inch-thick off white head. Very good looking. Aroma of spice and glue. Flavor is complex. Interesting yeast profile. Slighty fruity but bitter - like biting into an unripened peach. Not citrusy. Not too sweet. Body is medium, heavier at the bottom of the bottle. Finishes clean, but yeasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Not too heavy in the nose, just a bit of herbal tea-like aroma, very faint floral tinges, some straw and light sweetness. Semi-cloudy golden in color with a very fine head, no lacing to speak of, though. Very balanced flavor profile, only briefly sweet, then a bit cake-like, some herbal tones and light spice, with faint banana, pineapple and a very light touch of bitterness at the finish. Effervescent and refreshing on the palate, body is medium. Very tasty and refined example of less being more -- subtlety is key.
