3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold, minimal head. Nose is funky yet herbal and floral, kinda like potpourri with a bit of hay. Flavor is very estery with slight boozy notes of dough and hay and light pale grains, with a kinda-hoppy leafy hop and floral resin finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Stone Winter Storm. A sold Saison. For a brewery that’s not really known for the style they dialed it in pretty well. The name makes me want to punch myself.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured a clear golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus yeast flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Clear golden pour with a white head. Really nice fruit ester notes of banana and pear. Floral and spicy hops, some pepper, nice dough, and bread, and a mild citrus note. The flavor has a nice malt sweetness of bread and dough. Good banana and pear fruit notes, spicy hops, nice floral qualities, and hints of black pepper. Good yeast bite to it as well.
