3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Lemon, grass, coriander and yeast. Clear cold with a rich white head. Tonys of lemon grass from what I assume is nelsen sauvign hops. On the sweet side with no bitterness and none of the barnyard funk. Very light an refreshing, a great light mild saison. Not that true to style, but really good nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 06/30/2013. Golden pour, slight haze, spritzy white head fades within seconds to a flat surface. Aroma is biscuit malts, fruity notes, peach and banana prevalent, yeast with light spices. Taste has rich fruity citrus, banana, juicy, spicy yeast with floral notes, herbal bitterness well-integrated. Medium body. Aroma is a bit boring but shines with flavor. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Well-developed cereals accompany citrus and white pepper into a potent finish where herbal bitterness is balanced out by tropical fruitiness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the shiny yellow golden.
-The Saison yeast esters and lingering hoppiness are harmonious.
-Mouthfeel structure and flavor profile are both intelligently conceived.
-As good as this is, I think I still prefer their Saison One in its many incarnations.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Molto. Pale bright yellow with thin white head. Aromas of citrus, sour lemon, subtle hops. Much fuller and more flavoursome than it first appears. Hits the back of the throat with zesty fruit, but with a nice hoppy kick to finish. Fantastic balance of crisp and lively, refreshing and tasty. A winner.
