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!

Gold color. Moderate head. Sweet with some spice, but thin palate. The aroma is right but something off with the flavor that I can’t pit my finger on.

Sampled from a can at All Pints North 2013 in Duluth, MN. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Some tart plum coming through. Slight funk. Decent enough brew for the summer months.

A golden peach colored beer with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet malt, fruit, and yeast. The flavor is funky yeast and fruity with light grain and pepper accented by high carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a golden color with big white head. Tart, white wine, fruity, malty aromas. Straw, plum, malty, slight tart flavors. I was really excited to try this beer, it sounded really cool, but I was a little let down. Still decent, but not exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Generally like a lighter version of the velevet rooster. Light yellow with a large head when it pours it clears up nicely a s it sits. Malty with saison yeast and the carbonation heavy on the initial palete as it looses its carbination it gets more of the malt flavor and a hint of dark fruit at the end. Not as plummy as I wanted.

16oz Can - Aroma starts out as typical Saison, then surprises you with sweet, cherry notes. Golden color and refreshing taste makes this a great Saison. The plum notes come out on your tongue and are quite nice! I was very please with this brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is wet hay, faint melon, citrus rind, plum skin. I normally don’t like farmhouse ales, but the plum plays really well with the farmhouse yeast and the esters are fairly muted. A little dough, tart yeast notes that turn sour with a hint of hops, plum, wood. Not overly sweet or vomit-inducing, and definitely interesting. Not very sessionable, but worth buying a 4 pack to share.
