4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Off the tap into a pint glass. One finger of head with opaque, dark orange colored body.
A fragrant aroma of orange and coriander.
The taste was great depth with lemon, orange and yeast. It’s bright and sunny.
The texture has a light fizz, with moderate carbonation and medium body.
This is one of the better saisons I’ve had. It is complex and balanced. Find it and drink it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a ginormous white head on there. Nose has a lot of fruitiness, with a bit of apple in there, some hints at sourness, and some subtle spice notes. Taste is a tad sour, but has an extremely dry finish. Feels a bit drying on the palate to me.

Bottle from agold. Thanks!
A: Cloudy browned yellow. Fluffy white head. Lacing.
N: Peppercorn, toffee, biscuit, cracker, and some esters. Bit of funk. Hops seem to lend more of a spiciness than a citrus.
T: Sweet. Not much bitterness.
M: Creamy carb. Medium-ish body.
O: A very different beer than 4,5,6. Maltier and more aggressive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice, heavier saison. Pour a cloudy yellow with a light white head. Smells of lemon and berries. Taste starts with a creaminess and lots of lemon, which leads to lots of grapefruit, and a boozy finish. Had on tap at Hopmonk.
