3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of cardamom, herbs, ginger, and lemon peel. Straw-like complexion with a slight haze, and a mostly fading, white head. Dry, very floral, perfume-like, and somewhat spicy. Light bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean finish with lingering cardamom-like flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Enjoy by: 07/21/13. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a skim of a beige head. A zesty aroma of citrus rinds, oranges, pineapples, bananas, bubblegum, candi sugar, cloves, nutmeg, light coriander, pepper, and a sizable yeastiness. Semi-sweet upfront taste-wise with a little candi sugar and bubblegum. Some cereal grains and zesty citrus rinds follow. Spicy. Yeasty. Kinda tangy. More than a few dashes of pepper in the moderately dry finish. Very enjoyable and very sessionable for a saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is fruits and funk with some piney, floral hops and perfumey spices.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little funky fruit and some spices (corriander, pepper) and a good sized piney floral bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I’m not sure I’d call it a saison. But I like it as a session beer with good bitterness and some funk.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Six pack from DeBucas. Pours out a light lemony color with a white frothy head. Light bubbly carbonation. Light citrus and yeasty aromas. Flavor is good. Very refreshing brew. Goes down easy. Clean, crisp finish. Highly under-rated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dorée, bien pétillante, mais elle présente peu de mousse ; le nez est en épices (coriandre, myrique, sapin) et en fruits (citron, mangue). Plus retenue en bouche, elle prend mieux le temps d’exprimer ses différentes composantes, trop agressives en nez. Les saveurs sont justes, bien balancées, les malts ressortent, bref c’est une bonne Saison, totalement réussie, si l’on oublie ses petits impairs.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pale yellow, with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is lemons, hay, and some dusty, barnyard notes. The flavor is sweet and musty up front, with a bitter and sour finish. The palate is light to medium, astringent, dry, and a little grainy. Overall, this is a surprisingly funky and dry American saison, but the aftertaste is long, sour, and unpleasant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a fluted glass. Clear hay with a thick white head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, white bread. Taste is like a fizzy grapefruit cocktail. Lots of spice, citrus, pine, mint. A bit thin. Definitely easy drinking.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color. Opens sweet and finishes dry. Aggressively hopped which ends up hiding a bit of the Belgian yeast. Still, really cool beer right here. Very tasty.
