3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I love the complex aromas this Saison gives off. It smells very sweet with floral, apple and coriander hints. Is a misty yellow color with a very nice head. Citrus like flavor and a bubbly finish. Very nice beer.

Bottle from Swamp Head brewery. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Aroma has a lively mix of Belgian yeast and spices. Nice flavor with a slightly dry aftertaste. The 7.6% seems to be fairly well masked.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
