3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I donít think this is much of a saison but a nice drinkable beer if warm weather ever returns. Pours a pale yellow with a lacing head. The aroma has a lot of piney hops. The flavor as well with a nice sweet balance. Thin as to be expected. I could see myself pounding down a few of these after mowing the lawn.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. The nose is a bit dirty with a peppery diaper like spice that dissipates slowly as the beer warms. The palate is crisper than the nose would have lead me to believe and confirms that it is a solid drinker and not a drainpour... Earthy yeast profile with traces of pepper and citrus to add a slight complexity. Not bad but Ill stick with the Helios over this anytime.... although the lower alcohol levels in this make is a plausible session beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wow, a bit different. Starts with basil in the nose. Weird. Appearance is pale and clear, but with nice lacing/head/retention. Taste has more basil, a bit of hops, a bit of sour, not much in the way of funk. Not sure how I feel about this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of spice, wheat, and a slight funk. Taste follows, slight bitter finish, clean and slightly tart. Good saison, but nothing that exciting
