Sampled at a recent tasting. While I enjoy Upright beers and the occasion saison this one sort of fell somewhere in the middle for me. Slightly tart with subtle hints of fruit/lemon. Good but nothing spectacular.

Bottle. Cloudy burnt orange pour with a huge white head. Big apricot aromas. Spices, apricots, citrus hops notes with mild yeast and malty undercurrents. I’m usually not a huge Saison fan, but this is solid.

Draft at brewery, Portland. Pours a medium golden orange, little to no head. Aroma gives off some herbal funk and some slight resinous notes. Body huge yet crisp. Finish is slight yet bitter really nice, much more on the vein of a traditional English-style pale than what usually passes for the style in this part of the country.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle.
Pours a golden orange colour with a large foamy white head. Aroma of dried apricot, grapefruit and biscuit. Flavour of caramel malts, dried apricot, grassy hops, weak floral notes, grapefruit and some grainy notes. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a lingering bitter, citrusy, dry finish. Really refreshing and a heavy hop profile, just the way I like it.
