3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Always Ron's in Hagerstown, MD.
Clear, yellow-amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of yeast, fruit, pine, floral perfume and mild earthy hops.
Taste of floral hops, earthy herbs and spice, year and pine. Much hoppier, or at least less malty, than your typical saison.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright yellow with two-finger foamy white head that retains some lace. Good looking beer. Yeasty bread like aroma with secondary spices. A little bit of farmhouse funk in the flavor. Some citrus, mostly lemon. Very yeasty. Light bodied and fizzy palate. No real aftertaste. Refreshing. Picked up a six for $8.00 at The Beer Store. Went back for, alas, it was gone.

Spices overwhelm grain taste---but were tasty. Very clear for a saison. Average head and body. Lots of flavor for a session brew!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Unclear, bright yellow. Nose is initially slight wet straw/funk, heavy spice, lemon citrus. Comes of a bit odd to me. Taste is tangy lemony, grapefruit hints, coriander, funky straw. Refreshing, dry, interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pale grains, yeast funk, citrus and spiciness. Crisp tart lemons, wheat graininess, yeast funk and ending a spicy hop driven note. Pretty solid. Bit of of a tinny astringent character. Pretty solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy straw with a large, quickly dissipating white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is orange and lemon zest, coriander and other spices, some earthy yeast. Flavor is all that -- stro gly spiced but balanced well with some moderate bitterness, wheat and mild maltiness. Light to medium body. Quite good.
