3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek. A lemony and Bretty aroma greets you. Yellow golden body with lots of soapy head. A lemon and wheat tartness. Lacey. Above average carbonation. A good drinker though a tongue burner with the Thai spice. As a saison, well its tart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at The Crest. Hazy yellow-orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, floral hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal yeast, lemons and hops. The finish is grassy hops and fruit. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL thanks to BrainLayer. Pours a full hazed straw. Soapy, large foam. Suddy retention. Nose is puppy breath- cleans up after sitting out for a bit. Gains pineapple, lemon, dough. Still some celery and dog. Taste is grassy, lemon soapy, very bubbly with some acrid bitterness. Not quite complete. More like a work in progress. Sharp oil, vitamin C, some medicinal sharpness in the palate. Still refreshing, but not close to be being a world class saison. As it warms, more pineapple and white peach throughout. Small tartness, biscuit, lemon, dough. Refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow-golden pour. Hazy/cloudy with a tight white head. The aroma is a little bit grassy and grainy. Moderately sweet wheaty flavour with a touch of bright lemony character. A little bit of white Mmpepper. Drinks a little green, despite the potential in this glass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, pout out of bottle is slightly hazy pale yellow with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, vanilla, oak, some earth, grass and spice notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of lemon, biscuit and vanilla, hints of earth, grass and tart fruits, finishing fairly sweet with a nice dry finish, very drinkable.
