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!

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.
