3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can. BB 01/11/14. From a trade with deyholla.
Golden colour with a small dense creamy white head.
Yeast, mild bitterness, fruits and hops in the aroma.
The flavour is Belgian yeast, grassy hops, moderate bitterness and some fruitiness. Tasty. Plums I can’t find but it doesn’t matter. This is good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet plums and clove spicage over bready malt. The flavor found black pepper, cloves, and banana over bready malt and a touch of plum.. back to the spices on the quick, dry finish. Lighter-bodied and dry.. ok feel and flow.. overall not that interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Kennys. This is a nice saison. I kept looking for plum but found none. Still, it is a nice beer. Just a bit of bret.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can. Hazy gold-orange-yelllow unfiltered body. Thin, creamy, steady of-white head. Has a pretty discernable plum character, which melds nicely with the Saison yeast. A little bit of a bite, but then fades into a sweet finish. Has some depth, but maybe a little too much going on, the Saison yeast is not really a clean palate to paint on. An OK, enjoyable beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big can in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a big, white head. Aroma of light plums, some spicy yeast, pale malts, and a weird bread/cracker note. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours hazy butterscotch with a large puffy off white head that has good staying power and laces well. Aroma is fairly standard saison, peppery, yeast, lemon, herbs. Flavor is the same with a fruity, kind of odd, note over the top. Light plus sweet, a touch of lemony zest. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad, actually.
