3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Not a gusher but provides an over carbonated head that results in a huge eggshell head on a hazy burnt rust orange. Dusty yeast, slight apple, cobweb, and ripe fruits in the aroma. A little too sweet upfront , still dusty, bit apples come in, and slight ripe red fruit. Lighter soft body with nice carbonation. Could be drier, and would like to have had this fresher.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very lively hazy golden orange color witha HUGE rocky frothy head that sticks and sways for the life of the beer. On the nose its got a good kick of fresh citrus, tangerine, fresh grass, yeast and the faintest whiff in the sinus of wintergreen. The palate continues the story with much the same but a lot of malty heavy bodied notes to round out the backend and balance out the bright hop and yeast notes. Nice dry fruit mingles with some pepper on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a big white head. Nose is herbs, some light fruit, some grass, and an earthy funk. Flavor follows with hints of pepper, herbs, grass, and some mild hops. Light to medium in body and just plain delicious.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a huge creamy off-white head. Nose is light citrus and herbal hops, dusty yeast, and a dry, lightly spicy maltiness. Taste is dry pale malt, dusty yeast and a bit of spiciness. Long, sharp, spicy hop finish with pine and herbals mixed in. Intensely drying and sharp. Huge carbonation, and the whole thing makes me feel like I need to drink some water.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
April 26, 2011 - 750ml bottle at Volo shared with blankboy. Cloudy amber-yellow with huge frothy/creamy long-lasting off-white head. Aroma is bone dry and spicy/yeasty herbal bitter, sharply yeasty - solid background of tart fruit (not sure what kind). Taste - again, tart, some sweet fruit in the background, slightly sweeter than the aroma, mild-to-moderate alcohol presence, really good - somewhat wild, reminds me a bit of Hopfenstark funky beers. Solid body, almost frothy soft carbonation, a little acidity, finishes incredibly dry and tingly, maybe a hint of old oak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden color with a whitish color head. Yeasty with malt and spice at the front and a light fruitiness (citrus and peach). Full enough to matter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a tulip.
4.0 A: Lightly hazed yellow orange color. I needed a few pours to get a full glass due to lots of head. Eventually settled on three fingers of white, frothy/pillowy head. Retention is pretty good and lots of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Big herbalness in the nose. Earthy and spicy hoppiness. Pear fruitiness dominates, while melon and apple are underneath. Overall clean with slightly bready malts and just a touch of crystal malt.
3.5 T: Again pear fruitiness is huge. Moderately herbal overall with spicy and earthy hops. Thereís a moderate bitterness, which doesnít work all that well in a saison, but itís okay I guess. Apple and melon next. Lightly bready with light hay and grass funk.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation level is fine, but itís a heavy, dead carbonation. Iíd like it to be a bit spritzier. Still, good enough here too.
3.5 D: Tasty take on a saison. I like this one way more than Four. Canít wait to try Six.
