3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I do agree with the previous commenter that the retail price for this seems a bit high, given what it is. On its own terms, it is a reasonably well rounded, floral saison, with a hop note biting more at the start. Decent palate. Quite a bit of head. Bottle.

Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours golden with an inch of white foam that leaves lacing. Nice peppery notes on the nose. Nice, clean on the tongue with some solid hop bite on the finish. Solid for style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhere... 12oz: Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is farmhouse funk, flowers, and spice. Taste is bitter at the front. Funky. Full saison taste with a light body. Some aftertaste. Almost no sweetness.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear straw yellow pour with a ridiculously big head, aroma has ginger lemon and lime, taste has spice citrus, some yeasty action, pretty good for a faux saison.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Top Shelf Brews. Snifter displays a nice unfiltered gold with small white head, leaving lace down the sides. Nose is limes, lemon zest and a zesty spice. Taste is mostly identical to the nose with the addition of honey and dry grassy hops. Light pepper in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pale golden pour with mild haziness. Medium, quickly fading head with decent lacing. Aroma is phenolic with lots of belgian yeast, bubble gum, and spice notes. Flavor is light, crisp, with a nice lingering belgian twang. Spice and citrus clean up the finish. Light bodied with zippy carbonation. This is quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Comes out of the tap a nice, bubbly, clear golden with a fine-bubbled white head. Hearty aroma is quite yeasty, with fruity and subtle malty notes. Crisp flavor has yeasty, malty, fruity, and coriander tones - definitely for sipping rather than chugging. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but scarcely subtracts from the enjoyableness of this brew. Swing a session with this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Sharp Edge Beer Emporium. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of juniper berries, sage, flowers, floral hops, Belgian yeast. Flavor of light spices, lemon, yeast, earthy hops, flowers. A bit odd tasting, spice wise, and it’s not terribly exciting flavor-wise. It’s alright.
