3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy pils yellow with a whote head that quickly dissipates leaving no lacing. The aroma is faint yeast and malt. The palate is medium body. Taste is a spicy citrus. 12 oz bottle I appreciate a low gravity saison. Anyway, if it was brewed for the workers, why do it at high gravity? Appears self-defeating or this a modern take on it?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Important cloves and bubblegum smear honey-laced straw before herbal hops conclude each sip.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty pale straw.
-The soft prickling of carbonation could be more expansive (for the style).
-The cloves are quite intense in the nose.
-Drinkability remains high throughout.
On tap at the brewery taproom.

Direct from bootle in MacBoost’s car on way back from Hill Farmstead. Big banana, bubble gum nose. Lemon zest, banana, clove and a little spiceyness. Dry finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beau nez fruité et épicé. En bouche, on retrouve les arômes fruités du nez, fruits de la passion, mangue, lychee, ananas, ainsi que les arômes épicés (poivre, clou de girofle). Belle texture due au mélange de grain, seigle et avoine. Finale légèrement acide, levurée et fruitée, faible amertume.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazed gold into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Banana and bubblegum aromas. Dry with sweet bubblegum and peppery clove upfront turning to mild tropical fruit in the lasting finish.

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, medium and a bit gushing bubbly head, light cloudy yellow color, yeasty aroma with cheesy notes and a hint of glue, flavour of almond with some fruits, medium piercing, but quite pleasant sourness. Nice.
