3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at The Alibi Room. Dark yellow with minimal head. Light spritzy lemon scent. Flavour is like a lawnmower Saison or did they call them threshing beers. Refreshing light and tart hint of sourness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery. Hazy gold with a white head. The aroma is floral and a touch worty with some melon and citrus rind. The flavor is dry and lightly tart with light floral and spicy hops. There is also some toasty malt and tropical fruit. Light bodied and snappy, with ample carbonation. The aroma was a bit odd to start things off, but I like where this went in the flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
chalky, slightly funky nose, but nothing outstanding. Very light body, dry, but lacking much complexity. A bit unbalanced. Peppery, slightly tart mouth. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5 ounce sample on tap at the brewery. Light esters present with banana notes. Aroma is a bit tart and a bit sweet. This is a bit difficult to analyze because the entire tasting room reeks of bleach. Moderately hazy golden body with an off-white head. Starts metallic, spicy, lightly sour and astringent with lemon notes in the middle. There is a fair wheat character to this with some dusty yeastiness later on. I would like more barnyard character.

Upright 4. 750ml bottle thanks to Derek for sharing... Pours a hazy
soft grapefruit hue with a huge overflowing soapy white... Aroma is
floral and soapy for the majority with some additional yeast notes...
Flavors are a continuation if the same. Seems like a Belgian ale with
flowers and soap. Thin bodied with a fluffy mouthfeel. Not sure what
happened to this one.
