3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer comes out of the can with a large white head and a cloudy golden color, and the aroma has a mixture of general sour fruit with a hint of plum as well as some dough yeast. The taste is quite sour and mildly sweet, but its balanced between the two. The palate rounds the beer our nicely due to the medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture, and abrupt finish.

Do not let the "plum" fool you. This is a great bitter ale. Not too sweet and great for a clean crisp beer. Keep it up Tallgrass.

16 oz can purchased at Gomers South in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a lightly hazed golden yellow with a billowy 3 inch inch white head. The head is quite rocky, and falls with splotchy lace. The aroma is floral perfume along with plum sweet and a bit of grass. The taste is straw up front, then the sweet floral plum along with some plum skin. The sweet turned a bit honey and a touch cloying as it warmed. The palate is medium bodied with the straw and sweet fruit finish.

Pint glass pour from Muddy Pig. Effectively furthers the reputation of Tallgrass as a well below average brewery. Appearance is pretty decent but aroma and lacing are undesirable. Flavor takes on too much fruit missing the farmhouse ale mark completely. Honestly it?s about what was expected but unfortunately what was expected was not good. Avoid.

Tap. Hazy orange. Sweet and sour. Pretty refreshing, but not well balanced. Overly fruity.Tallgrass has not been a good brewery for me, and this continued the trend. I like that they tried something different, I didn’t like that they failed.

It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of wine, some fruits and maltiness. The taste was of hay, plums, malts and some tartness. It was ok.

Cloudy yellow colored pour. Big, fluffy white head. Plenty of lacing. Smells like an over-exaggeration of a Saison. Big yeasty aroma. And that’s about it. Taste is a sour plum and malt flavor. A little dry, too much so. Bitter. Decent beer, but not much of a Saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can. Pours hazy orange with a large foamy soapy off white head that slowly fades and shows nice lacing. Aroma has nice farmhouse funk some plum scents and bready yeast. Taste has nice spice and bitterness up front with some fruity plum and funk along with bready yeast and faint tartness. Palate is medium fizzy and drying. I am digging this! This is right up my alley, subtle and shows all qualities of a Saison that I enjoy!

Sample at APN. Pours a hazy yellow with white head. Some citrus, spices, etc. A decent saison, but not great.
