3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this ale had a hazy straw yellow pour and gave a fluffy, white, lasting cover, there was ample carbonation, streams of carbonation everywhere, it left nice rings and spots of lacing on the glass,
the aromas were floral hops that had a touch of spice and citrus, light citrus fruit that resembled lemon, light malt with some bread, little to no funk, a little yeast and powder sugar sweetness,
it had flavors of light citrus hops and malt, a little lemon fruit, and a little sweetness,
the finish had a light hop bitterness and citrus bite that left the mouth a bit dry,
the mouth feel was light and creamy, and there was lively carbonation,
this beer had a very nice presentation,
the nose and flavor were dim, it was light on the tongue and gave some dryness, I let the glass warm up hoping the nose would get better but there was not a lot here, a disappointing drink, not much fruitiness and hardly any funk, I expected more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
American saison, at Borefts. Very thick, dense, frothy, towering snow white head on top of a pale yellow beer with greenish hue, cloudy all over. Aroma of lemon zest, white pepper, dry hay, bready wheat, gooseberry, sourdough, field flowers - reasonably ’saison-esque’ indeed. Dryish fruity taste with pleasant sourish accents of lemon, kiwi and soapy starfruit, bit bready, doughy even, with a long, florally and grapefruity hop bitterness in the end, aromatic and drying, but pairing well with the yeasty fruitiness and the bready maltiness. Very quenching, and isn’t that the first intention of a 4.5% ABV saison?
