Golden hazy body, white head. This has wheat, sweet malt, some yeast and spicyness on aroma. Taste is way too sweet for saison. Otherwise really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker golden coloured with a nice big and good holding head. Decent smell of wheat, malts and yeast. Slightly sweet, good yeasty-wheaty and malty at the taste, with a good moderated bitteraftertaste with bread, and slightly earthy. Not totally my style of beer, but I can appreciate this one. Good refreshing, hopped. Thank you Andy!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In aroma, its spicy, yeasty and has a hint of banana. The flavor is crisp and leans toward a hefeweizen slightly. Not the most authentic saison but decent in flavor and pretty good if it didn’t have a style to conform to.

On tap at Finch’s, Bloomington. Nice straw gold pour, with a slightly grainy, gritty look to it, and a big dappled head. Huge dry and spicy aroma is so inviting, more or less the only kind of thing I can imagine over a lunch. Spot on with some lovely yeast notes at the fore (both aroma and taste), backed up by subtly dry hopping, white pepper, mild floral notes, and a hint of sea salt in the finish. Very satisfying.
