3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Minty hops, straw-like wheat and subtle herbs swirl into a lightly tart finish for a quenching, humble Saison.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy blond.
-The body is very light and thus very drinkable.
-Citrusy fruitiness also increases drinkability.
-Every flavor is well integrated, yet few stand out.

750 capped bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid bright gold with frothy well retained white head. Nose is wheaty and pale malty, with notes of florals, white peppery spice, hops, and mild yeasty funk. Tastes floral, a bit tart fruity, with some funky yeasty, white pepper and coriandert spice, hops, and a dry tart finish. Comes off like a Berliner weiss/saison hybrid.

Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is full with grains, honey, lemon acidity and herb-y spices as well as bits of wheat and yeast. The taste is effervescent across the palate punctuating notes like yeasty spices, lemon, graininess, herbaliness, mild tartness too, wheat and a thin layer of yeastiness. Darn tasty stuff.
