3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured golden/orange hue with a white head. This was quite spicy and insanely dry. Some malted sweetness that meshed with citrus and floral/grass and more yeast-like spices. A bright saison for sure.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy light amber with a white head. Smells light citrus. Tastes somewhere between a typical saison and a rye ipa. This is not as bright or sweet as a typical saison. Unique....very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a bit of head that dissipates quickly. Smell is quite hoppy with grass and trees, but also has a bit of a wild touch and a bit of something sweet, very nice though hoppier than I would have expected. Palate is medium bodied and has a good amount of softer finer carbonation. Taste is hoppy at first but then gets a bit of a funky flavour and gets balanced with some sweetness though fades out to some hoppy bitterness. Very complex and interesting.

What an unexpected beer. Tingly mouth feel and a healthy hops finish. Sweet on the front end, dry at the finish. Golden orange color and heavy white head. As expected awesome from 3F & Menno.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from lemonhead. Cloudy rusty amber with a small off white head. Aroma of honey, milk caramels, peppercorns and lemon. Flavor is very sweet, lots of caramel and butterscotch, there is some mild spice and bitterness. Medium body with a syrupy, flabby mouth feel. This is supposed to be a Saison???, really? This beer is a flabby, under attenuated mess.
