3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - bright golden with a nice head.
Nose - lemon and a green pungent herb thing. Also a touch of fresh sweat. Cactus/aloe Vera. Maybe bay leaves.
Taste - medicinal lemon balm. More fresh sweat and some tomato stalks.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - opposite of synergy. The overall package didnít live up to the beautiful complex aroma.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Pours clear golden with a thin ring of off-white head. Nose is white pepper, coriander, and dry, lightly fruity malt. Mineral as well, but real spicy. Taste is really spicy with lemon peel, but has a weird plastic note as well. A touch of nuttiness (!) and a perfumy, spicy finish. Not my bag at all. When I want to session something, it sure as hell shouldnít be spicy. Thin, with biting carbonation. Just not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iíve been liking this a lot. nice spritzy head with lacing. Very bright, sharp and dry up front and then the peppery spice comes in followed by a bit more herbal character and finishing light and somewhat lemony. A beer in three cohesive parts. And a low ABV keeps it refreshing.

Fair saison, on tap at MacGregor Amherst. Light yellow with carbonation bubbles. A story in pepper.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
It pours clear yellow with a fair amount of head and lace. There is a lot of carbonation that rises from the bottom until the last sip. The smell is pretty good, a little malt and yeast and citrus. The flavor is the same, but with a little bit of a sulfur aftertaste that I didnít much like. Not enough to ruin it, but I never quite got to where I didnít mind that aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours gold with thick white head. Aroma is lemon, misc. citrus, sugar cookie. Taste is sour lemon (not as aggresive as expected), some dough/yeast/biscuit elements, orange rind. Not as crisp as Iíd like...chewier and denser. Good, not great.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Too citrusy, I think. Clear, straw colored beer with light lacing and a small/moderate bubbly head. Pleasant enough aroma, zesty. Taste is average for the style, with some spices and citrus-y bitter finish. I think itís a pretty good beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Hazy pale golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of vine tomatoes, lemons, cardamom and bay leaf. Refreshing flavour of mint, cucumber, grass and pink grapefruit. Thin body with a watery texture. Sharp fizz. Crisp and delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice session ale. Light, floral, and fruity with a balanced amount of spice. Bitterness is also understated.
