3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a very small off-white head. White bread and citrus on the nose. It isnít often I call a beer too wet - but this one surely is. I like a saison to be dry and refreshing, with a crispness and an earthiness to it that makes you think an old, smiling Belgian farmer poured it for you on your lunch break from tending his fields. This one is thick and heavy, with the quenching power of gatorade. Nothing dry about it. The flavor is interesting - bread, lemon and mandarin, some grassy hops on the back end... but the feel of this one is dismal. Not impressed.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from DaSilky1. Floral notes in the aroma with light herbs, citrus, lemongrass, earthy hops, and musty yeast. Smells great. Golden colored, this pours with a booming white head that yields some thick lacing. The flavor offers a light spice and wheaty notes to go along with much of what the aroma showed. Lemongrass, citrus, earthy hops mix together with some sourness creeping in towards the finish with a hint of this cardboardy yeasty note. The palate is crisp. The sweetness of the beer is matched fairly well with the light spice and tangy fruity notes. The finishing note is the only part of this beer I didnít really like. Very good. Not as good as Cellar Door though.
