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.
