Draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy, deep gold with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, some yeastiness. Flavor is tropical fruits, some spiciness, yeasty/earthy. Good sweet/bitter balance. Finishes pretty dry. Best saison I’ve had in a while. Wish I lived close to the brewery!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange gold. Candied tropical fruits-pineapple, guava, mango. Palate is medium-bodied, with more tropical fruit, frsh herbs and light spice. Not your typical banana/tangerine farmhouse flavors, this beer is really different & fun. Farmhouse/saison is my favorite syle & this is the most interesting one I’ve had in awhile.

22-ounce bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Refreshing, very drinkable beer for outdoors/summer, and underrated in saison class. Rich golden color with light gold head. Various fruit flavors.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly understated for a saison compared to others in the style--at times it tastes almost like a very good pilsner. But nevertheless this is a strong offering.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
SpringsLicker’s Fish Fry. Sample from a bottle thanks to Suttree. Just barely hazy orange with a slow white foam. Aroma of oranges, nice sweet malts, awesome aroma. Taste is grassy, zesty, citrus, but a bit syrupy and the alcohol shows through.
