3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 10/23/12 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours hazy but bright orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick lace that clings to the side of the glass. The nose is spicy saison yeast with some nice bread and caramel malt, along with floral and grapefruit peel hops. The flavor is a bit more malt forward than expected with the spicy yeast and floral/citrus hops melding together very nicely. The body is medium with very lively, stinging carbonation, and a long citrus hops and spicy yeast finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yeasty herbal vegetable garden aroma. Very malty at first then comes the expected citrus and bitter orange rind. Pleasant and light. Much more targeted for a summer day than winter night but very refreshing and tasty.

On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is slight floral, must, coriander, light banana. Taste is citrus rinds, some floral spice and mild sweetness. Might be a tad too much floral / potpourri for me, but a good stateside saison!

Bright golden but a little chunky at the bottom. Rich and complex aroma with lemon, coriander, yeast and sweet malt. It’s just as layered on the tongue. Sweet, dry and a hint of sourness. Love it, send me some!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy yellow with dense white head. Aroma is wheaty bananas, some spices. Taste is what I’d imagine a "double saison" to taste like: funky, spicy, mildly fruity with a little more heft than a regular saison, followed by a rather bitter finish for the style. Not as quick a quaff as a lighter saison, but quite tasty.
