3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Translucent Golden yellow. Some haze but not as much as I would expect. Thin white head that fades. Surprisingly it leaves a good amount of lacing in the glass.
S- Some yeast-but mostly an acidic smell.
T- Initial taste is bland. Some yeast and very little citrus. Aftertaste is quite acidic with a burn of alcohol (surprising for the ABV). A hint of yeast remains on the palate-the only thing saving this brew.
P- above average. High carbonation and good yeasty character to the body.
O- Its drinkable. I’d drink more if I had more than one bottle but its not something Im going to venture to buy again. I liked Yard’s Saison much better.
Serving type: bottle

22oz bomber. Pours very cloudy goldish-tan with a medium-thin head that disappears into *nothing* (not even little patches of bubbles on top - looks almost like fresh-pressed apple cider). The aroma is grassy and earthy from hops with a subtle touch of acidity and Belgian ester funk. The flavor starts dry with a light bready malt character and a strong ester-fruitiness and grassy hoppiness. At mid-palate, tasty yeasty esters combine with balancing earthy hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes dry with a light grainy malt character, interesting Belgian fermentation character (fruity, spicy, light acidity), and soft bitterness. The mouthfeel is brisk and highly-bubbled (despite its cidery appearance) with a medium body. Overall, not very pretty, but interesting with a refreshing complexity and drinkability, and very Belgian. Not bad at all.

Bottle [22oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a nice looking, slightly hazy, golden-orange with a long-lasting frothy off-white head. Pleasant aroma is yeasty, spicy & fruity along with biscuity malt. Flavour’s not as good as the aroma, but still fine: Sweet with yeast, biscuity malt, some alcohol and spices. The finish is a bit iffy and slightly harsh. Average bodied. A good Saison, not great, but I’d drink it again.

Draft at Rattle N Hum. Pours a nice gold with a fluffy head. Nose is pretty standard, light plums & peaches, a touch of lemon. Pretty one dimensional. Taste is a little grainy, estery with banana & coriander. Light lemon on the finish, dry. Light, watery body. Okay.
