3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange pour with a tall, chunky, off white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is almost perfumey with sweet floral notes, tree fruit, citrus, light spicy hops and fruity wood. Flavvor starts with sweet floral and citrus notes, then cereal, sweet booziness, bready and spicy yeast, green wood, very faint pine, spicy hops, and honey. The finsh becomes increasingly boozy and bready. Medium body, cream entry, juicy, sort of chewy middle and slick finish. Light, fairly sharp and blanketing carbonation. Pretty tasty, but too big and boozy, better than many sweet Saisons, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 from Randalls. Half of the Perfect Pint glass is white foam that slowly falls in on itself. The beer under it is hazy golden. This beer is very fruity and most of it are tropical. Lemon grass, alcohol, spices, banana, Belgian farmhouse yeast, earth, and a mix of dry and sweet. Nice beer and it has a lot going on.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
