3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from PDX. Clear golden with a huge off white head and some sticky lacing. Aroma is earthy, spicy, honey and bready pils malt. Flavor is smooth and malty without being sweet with some spicy/musty tartness and faint bitterness. Medium to light body with very active carbonation. Pretty nice beer, very easy drinking but not as much complexity as I thought.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
First off, this is foamy as hell. Second off, it smells of cat urine, rustic hops, Hampton Beach, farmyards, wheat bread and rubber. Tastes of bitter hops going up, and bitter hops going down in a smorgasbord/rootsi laud of graham cracker, fish paste, rich soil, and plastic. Oh, man, I liked this one quite a lot!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
#700! Pours a very cloudy orange-copper with a massive long-lasting fluffy off-white head. Wonderful Saison aroma: Yeasty, herbal, spicy and floral along with a nice amount of citrus fruit and light hops -- it all comes together nicely. Dry, lightly tart flavour of yeast, wheat, cereal grain, citrus fruit, pepper and a finish that is quite bitter for the style -- very easy to drink. Medium bodied and well carbonated for the style. Very good stuff, I easily polished off a 750 of this.

Very malty saison with a slight soapy note. Otherwise nice spicy lemon character and a crisp dry hop bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange gold with a fluffy white head. Minty nose with some juniper notes. Lighter bodied with more clean herbal notes on the palate. I think I like the hop blast on the finish, but it is rather shocking.

Bottle courtesy of James at a tasting at Andy’s the day after doing a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a hazed golden tinged amber with a medium to large creamy white head. Almost a bit of mint on the nose, spicy yeast and musk, smooth and musky. Long musk, wheat, a touch of caramel. Tasty, nice musk. Very nice.

Bottle, 07/17/2012. Pours hazy amber, effervescent with frothy head and thick lacing, excellent retention. Aroma of yeast and white pepper, lemony pale malts, grassy hop character with light orange, grapefruit. Taste has light pale malts, peppery yeast, touch of caramel, herbal bitterness, dry finish. Smooth, round palate feels light. I quite like this one, the hops work really well.
