4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2oz bottle. Hazy pale yellow-tan-orange. Nice fluffy off-white head. Herbal, grassy aroma, nice interplay between the hops and yeast. Grassy and herbal, kind of what US spice bomb Saisons go for and fail miserably. Luscious champagne effervescence. Grassy lemon tones. A really great Blonde or Saison. Smooth, almost medium bodied. Super drinkable. Peppery hop presence lingers in the aftertaste. World Class, delicate, great beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 06-2014. Lightly fruity/candy sweet nose with yeast and earthy hops. Dull blonde with a creamy, lacing rocky white head. Taste is very dry with a heavy yeast character, has some doughy-bread touches into the aftertaste, where the spice kicks up and light noble hops bite. Hint of vanilla behind the wall of wheat. Lightly woody/resinous/scratchy medium body. Like the yeast character, but it is a little plain and is really the only thrust here (though the hops are well-conceived in a supporting role); maybe some malt variation would help?
