3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Bruery. Pours with a small white head over a hazy golden body. Aroma is grassy, tropical fruit, herbal, mango. Good hops, but according to Tyler, it is just whirlpool and bittering. Taste is fruity, dry, grainy and clean. Everything you could want from a non-farmyard-ey saison. Lively and dry bubbles. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a near cloudy yellow (barely hazy) with a small, fizzy white head. Okay retention and no lace. Aroma is all clovey Belgian yeast, lemon, fresh grass. Taste is very Belgian in character: dry, candi sugar, big clovey yeast character. Moves to grassy bitter full of citrus peel and soapy hops. Dry, fizzy, watery palate. Not necessarily rich or hoppy. Comes across as a pilsener with Belgian yeast.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting muddled grain bill on nose, tropical fruit, sweey fruity yeast notes as well. Golden orange pour, thinnish head, bright nice lace. Peppery, dry grainy, tons of different grain flavors, bread, wheat, rye perhaps, soft tropical fruit, peppery bitterness in the finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Leafy herbal bitterness is there as well as some lemon. Not bad, but a little muddled to me.
