Bottle poured into two tulip glasses
I was expecting a little more. There was nothing super interesting about it. But it is definitely a well balanced saison.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange beer with a ridiculously foamy off-white head that sets up in peaks and will likely spill over your glass if you do not pour carefully. Light, but fragrant nose of sour yeast, citrus, and pungent spice. Flavor is much more pronounced with bright sour lemon, undertones of earthy rye, and delicate spices and herbs on top, like white pepper and coriander. Crisply carbonated, this is a refreshing saison with lots of flavor.

Bottle, shared at Thanksgiving dinner with guests. Hazy orange-gold, lively white head. Pleasant yeasty character, light fruit esters, restrained funk. I’m impressed that the Bruery managed to keep this free from any sour character! Quite a nice saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours unclear golden in color with a frothy whitish head. Earthy cellar floor notes, bit of yeasty spicyness, some funkiness, lemony notes and hints of grassyness in aroma. Lemony juicyness and honey sweetness in taste at first, there’s also some spicy white peppery notes present. Not much of funkyness or tartness tastewise, but instead more of some citrus and spicy green herbs are present with a little bit of sweet malts as well.
