4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very bright yellow with a big pure white head. To smell this beer is to
smell a soapy yeast cake. Hmmm.. Dawn Dish Soap and yeast mixed with some spices. It sounds like a bad thing, but it is a familiar and expected aroma with this type of beer. Not off-putting at all. Flavor is clean,
simple, and still remains interesting. Citrusy, yeasty, lemony. Crisp, dry, finish which I really enjoy. An awesome summer beer with amazing drinkability.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at Craft Beer Co. It pours light straw yellow, with a very thick, foamy white head. The nose is ginger, zesty lemon, hay and white bread. The taste is hay, grass, lemon, grapefruit, fiery ginger, pepper, herbal, metal, white bread and butter, with a bitter-dry finish. A decent enough saison, but doesn’t stand out from the crowd.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Poor Phil’s... Dark murky honey gold, a nice off white head, creamy, lasting... Floral hops, strong, a bit of soap, herbal lots of aloe or eucalyptus, don’t like that... Much sweeter than I thought it would be, most of floral musk is gone, spicy aloe... Ok tasting but easy to drink

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cloudy straw, a little dark, on the orange side, large foamy head, nice lacing. Nice bright floral nose, soft barnish and musty/basement notes. This smells purdy good. Floral on the tongue, a little mealy.   Also dusty. Good, but wished it to be less mealy. Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. Dull, but strong, floral notes on the exit. Also a bit of citrus zest, candied if you wil. Pretty damn good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle-pours lite orange with a small soapy white head. doesnt look like the stateside really. noes of spicy hops, lite funky esters (brett, lemons, lite barnyard character), woody, organic (shovled earth). flavors exhibit the spicy hops and the nice yeast twang going on-one of the best of this combination of yeast and hops. again, spritzy body like stateside but it works here. it adds to boosting the hop profile on the palate. the earthy hops come out huge in the finish. a very nice american twisted saison here that is full of flavors. They need to bottle and distribute more Stillwater stuff.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color is golden, little bit cloudy. Smell and taste not really good, think I tasted orange peel. Too much carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty – wheaty and sweetish aroma, some citrus fruitiness and lots of herbal spiciness. Body is medium, malty – wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, some citrus and lots of herbal spiciness, yeast and some fruitiness. Finish is average, malty – wheaty and dryish, citrus and sharp spiciness. OK but too much sharp spiciness and wheat for me.

750 ml bottle.
Pours a dark, hazy orange colour with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma of strong citrus, spices and some earthy notes. Flavour of citrusy hops, sweet fruits such as apricot, spices and some floral notes. Medium bodied with a foamy mouthfeel and quite rough carbonation. Nice saison with too much carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a nice white head. Intersting herbal nose, light to medium body, nice bitterness, the sage character is a little too intense for me but it’s not bad. Again, a little on the sweet side for a saison...
