4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at TND. Pours a hazy yellow/pale golden with a medium creamy white head that left great lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, lemon, spicy saison yeast notes, maybe some Brett brux? Nose reminds me a bit of Orval. Flavor of the same tropical fruits and spicy saison yeast notes. Really nice and dry, decent American hop profile along with the bitterness. Also seem to be picking up some Brett character in the flavor. Super dry, full of hoppy and saison character. A cross between and saison and a hoppy "west coast" style pale ale. Makes me even more excited about tired hands opening up later this month.

11/6/13 $2 4oz at the bar. 2nd 4oz beer after filling up 7 growlers to trade. First saison ever drank while "rating beers". Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with nice lemony yeast flavors. I liked it better then the "we are infinite..."

This one poured a hazy bright yellow with a white head. Aroma was of pale grain, lemon, coriander , chamomille, and grass. Flavor was similar, mild harness, but a bit too grainy for me without much pop.

On draft at TH. Cloudy dishwater appearance. Interesting idea, using four different kinds of grains. Light & pleasantly sour. A good summer release, similar to a Berliner weisse. Crackers, clove, and a dash of cider.

Really great fruity notes with lean crisp malt character, not funky or tart and not really all that spicy so I guess some people might not think itís very saison-y but I really enjoyed it as just a good blonde-ish ale thatís extremely drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at TH. Cloudy pale gold pour, light and elegant looking. Fresh citrus and pepper in the nose, dry leafy hops and earthy grains. Gives the impression of a fine table beer, not far off their grisette in some sense. Playful mouthfeel, a bit of a bitter and dry finish. Flavors are like good fresh bread infused with citrus and spice. Enjoyable session brew.
