3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Gauzy, almost neon-ish yellow with a skimpy white film that barely covers the entire top of the brew. Aroma has fresh, weedy hops, mild orange rind, wet grass, a touch of florals, & I swear Iím picking up some Belgian style, spicy yeast... (I did not realize until later that this was listed as a Belgian ale, so I guess it makes sense). Taste has plentiful spicy & borderline earthy hops with more floral & grassy notes opening up mid-palate, not as citric as the nose would seem. Lightly pungent & quite bitter, lasting with a lingering sting into the aftertaste. Hops steal the show, the yeast & bready malt take a backseat in the flavor department, here. Crisp, snappy mouth feel, mostly dry finish. Decent Belgian-y style IPA.

Pale golden with a huge white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with a touch of yeast. Flavor is hoppy with light malt and a bit of yeast. A tiny bit of funk in the finish.

Smells spice with an earthy scent. Pearlescent gold with foamy yellow tinted white head. If a great saison and an incredible pale ale had a beautiful baby beer, this would be it. Smooth begining slides in then fades a bit to a warm Hoppy bitterness and both flavors melds. Amazing .

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 Itís okay, Iím not thrilled by this one. You get the normal belgian saison aroma here. I think this one of those breweries that is way over hyped. Iíve heard tons of people hyping up this brewery and the beer is okay but nothing that I would run back to, plus it is way over priced for what it is. The taste is nothing stellar. Typical saison, nothing really new.
