3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Kind of all over the place--not unexpected with an ingredient list like this--but it actually works. Gingerbread and pineapple tart and matcha; flowers and true cinnamon in the back. Flavor is a touch sloppy, but mostly dry, with the brett helping move things along. Fun stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of oak, tropical fruit, tartness slight funk. Taste is the same but brings out the lavender as well. Slightly sweet tart finish. Well balanced, very complex and all around quite a good beer. Less funky than saison man and has a slight lactic tart finish to it, which is quite nice. Subtle sourness but nice. Really like this as I drink it. Bumping up from 4 to 4.1---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Beer Authority.
Hazy gold pour, limited head. Aroma belies the sour flavors, slightly herbal. Quite tart for a saison, but initially a bit too much so and not very interesting. I leave this one sitting for an hour or two; upon returning the carbonation is markedly low and the tartness remains but at room temperature it is reasonably enjoyable despite the lack of focus.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit, funk, spice, and floral. Taste is tart fruit, funk, lavender, citrus, spice, and funk. Thought a bit too much lavender. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375, capped and waxed. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with no head, lace, or legs. Oranges and lemons on the nose. Creamy medium flat body. Light caramel with oranges and lemons on the mid palate. Mild citric finish. Not much happening here, really.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle at Uber Tavern. Clear gold color, no head. Melony acetic sour beer but not strong. A doable sour, especially for this acetic brewery. Its doable but not refined.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml. Straw filled barnyard nose with hints of funk and grains tossed in spice. Fairly medium bodied but thick with flavor. You can’t taste the pumpkin so much, but the lavender really comes through in the finish. A clever odd one that worked from Trinity...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Uber, thanks to Eugene. Initial pours were clear gold, later pours were cloudy (as expected). A few bubbles, but no real head. Aroma: brett, spice (like ... lavender and rosemary), mineral, wheat. Taste: dry and tart. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, slick texture. Overall: The spices and tartness force you to take this one slow. Nice, though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with almost no head at all. Aroma is quite sour with berries and wine barrels, as well as tart canned cherries. Full body with average carbonation. Flavour is tart with yeast, as well as a rather strange combo of berries, wood and juniper, with a herby finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, golden yellow color, cloudy. Aroma: tart furit: grapes, lemon, black pepper, the lavender is detectable, and the pumpkin is there, it is just hard to pick out. Palate: light body, liveely carbonation, refreshing, light bitter finish. Taste: fruity sweet, into a light tartness, some black pepper, a peach and lemon sweetness before the light bitterness finishes. Overall, likely one of the most complex beers I have ever had. So much going on, and done in a way that all the components get their time to shine. Great beer, super unique, highly recommend. New favorite from Trinity.
