2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle... Carbonation? Not really, no head or lace. Hazy copper color. Sweet fruit and floral aroma...blossoms...aroma is fairly mute though. Malty and somewhat sweet with an earthy herbal medicinal sort of bitterness. Alcohol shows up in the finish. Really, not very enjoyable...saison? sorry, just call this a spiced ale. It doesn’t come close to hitting the saison mark. Thanks Kevin, for giving me the chance to try this!

Is there a style these guys can’t make? From bomber, pours a very hazy yellow with a one-finger white head. Arom and taste of barnyard funk and oranges. Medium mouthfeel and perfect carbonation. This is not too strong, and really, just about right for me. A delicious and delightful saison.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is of strong sulfurous barnyard funk. Taste is of oranges and wheat. A tiny bit of clove. Not much of a fizzy feeling on the palate, which is unexpected given the constant string of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass.

Poured into a tulip glass. Hazy yellow-orange hue with a true white head. Aroma is all over the place with citrus, peach, grass, spice, yeasty funk. Taste is complex and full of flavors; Orange juice, fresh bread, spices, apricot and some lingering funkyness. A decent iteration of the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz. bottle. Sweet, spicy aroma, floral and herbal with notes of honey, chamomile and bubblegum. Lightly hazy golden in color with a sparse, fine head. Flavor profile is strongly sweet, floral, herbal and lightly spicy, more honey and chamomile, some dried herb and powdered sugar, just very sweet overall. Some fine carbonation on the palate, a bit thin, body is medium. Just okay, not really my style.
