3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz into a pint glass. Pours a hazy yellow with cloudy white head and mild aroma of tree and pollen. Mouthfeel is light as expected wit strong carbonation. Taste is fairly herby with chamomile predominating. Lemon rind too. Overall an ok Saison but nothing great and certainly doesn't rise to the level of Victory Helios.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a pale yellow color with a huge fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was a lovely mix of mustiness with moderate notes of pepper, citrus and bread. The flavor was dry, musty, dusty and funky with notes of pepper, bread dough and citrus. Long dry pepper and must finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy light gold. Frothy white head. Lots of spice in the aroma. Cardamon, clove, all spice, herbs, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning velvety texture, lively carbonation. Dry enough, but the spice tastes forced and infused, making one wonder what they’re masking in order to pull off a 4.5% saison. No nuances here.
