3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has basically no aroma. The least impressive of the group, mostly has the flavor and taste of a plain saison/golden ale. Good, but not equal to the others.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden in color with a white head and slight haze. Weird spice and wet paper/cardboard aroma. Some bread, sugar, orange, and very peppery. Slight yeastiness and a bit of must. The flavor is not terribly appealing either. Strong yeast, pepper, and paper flavors. Some sweet sugar, mild spice, yeast, and citrus. Easily my least favorite of the five variations.
