3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy, pale, golden-yellow with very thin head. Aroma is full of floral and citrus notes, with some mustiness in the background. Flavor is quite spicy--almost a bit peppery, and fruity, with the distinctive saison bite. This is a pretty good saison (based on my admittedly limited experience with the style).

22 oz bottled poured into my three floyds pint glass. Courtesy of my Chi town trading partner Chris, thanks man!
dark apricot pour with a nice beige head. Smell is dirty malt, hay and hops.
taste is semi sweet, earthy with a peppery finish. My first taste of a FFF saison. Overall pretty good, still prefer their other styles to this.

I smell and taste grapefruit, malts, spices, a touch of yeast, hops... and I possibly taste pears? This is a very good drink. Its also not going to corrupt or weaken the palate. Overall it is worth getting a bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at the Richmond Industry Gathering. Pours a clear copper color with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big fruity notes... grapefruit, stone fruits and berries... and some dusty and herbal notes. The taste is bread malts, cherries, berries and herbal notes. Medium bodied. Nice.
