Bottle. Pours a foggy straw color with nice fluffy white head. Smell was spicy, citrus and funky yeast. Tast was touches of spice, lemon rind, yeast, a bit bready, and hints of honey sweetness. All around a bit underwhelming though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Bottle 0801. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow-gold color with a small, lasting bone white head. Aroma of grapes, lemon, pear, herbs, sawdust, and faint spice. Flavor of sweet malts, grapes, lemon, dry grains, and mineral water. Light-bodied, with a dry, crisp mouthfeel and high carbonation. Keir said it reminded him of a Life Saver. Nice, refreshing summery saison.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is right for the style with wild yeast (funk), malt, barnyard, and grass. The appearance is yellow gold wit a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not my favorite.

Really nice Saison... Bottle tricky to open - the cork was put in too far, so I had to cut the top of the cork off and use a wine opener. Deep golden pour with a 2+ finger white head. Big Saison yeast nose with bright yeast esters and spices with coriander. Med body with spices, honey, and citrus. Dry finish with spices and citrus.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light gold & cloudy with a thin white head. Fragrance is lemon and yeast with a faint spice in the background. Taste is a rich malt with lemon overtones. It has full mouthfeel with a pleasant bitterness that is present from beginning to finish and the finish is just ’easy’. A well balanced and easy to drink saison.

Aroma of sour green apples and tropical fruit, maybe bananas and unripe mangoes. Flavor is soft bruised fruit, flowers and peppery spice. Very nice carbonation, fluffy pillowy bubbles, soft palate. I’m doing a disappearing act on this bottle. Cloudy pale yellow-gold color with a foaming thick 3 finger head.
