4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Yet another entry into my personal BHoF! This brew pours up a hazy amber-gold body and an enormous frothy head that leaves some amazing lacing on the glass. Scents of yeast, grains (like wheat), and fruits. Flavors of wheat and lemons along with subtle spices and something akin to warm butter. This brew is meant to be savored slowly and enjoyed for all the intense flavors and textures that it yields.

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.
