4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE REVIEWED: July 24, 2014... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... OCCASION: just watched Earth to Echo--fun, but not E.T. ...APPEARANCE: hazy, glowing golden orange body; an armada of bubbles cascades upward into a white, frothy, three-finger head that leaves thick cumulous clouds... AROMA: candied sugar, hay and lemon zest--missing the signature barnyard yeasts, though--definite allspice, cumin and coriander... PALATE: lively, active in the teeth; medium-bodied, with a long drawn-out, welcome aftertaste; sessionable but somewhat substantial... TASTE: apple, raisin, grape, zesty lemon, anise and cumin combine to create an abbey-like profile without the alcohol...not as soft and unfiltered as expected... OVERALL: one of the first (THE first?!) saison I had, and this bottle rewards well within my price range ($8.99 for a six); quite flavorful for the thirst-quenching expectations; Yards dos not often disappoint, and they do not here...

Draft at Golden West Cafe. Poured a sightly clear golden yellow color with a medium sized, creamy white head. Aroma was light spice notes, some floral notes. Citrus character was nice. Sweet malts. Light funky notes - nothing crazy, but pretty tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Poured w/1 in head of bright white foam...nice laces on my tulip glass. Slight saison haze, more amber than orange in colour. Nice Belgian funk on the nose...got a bit of banana as we'll. Very well-attenuated...fresh, effervescent. Typical spices/fruits on the tongue...some tart /sour as well. Excellent example of style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pear and banana nose, lemongrass. Fairly clear golden, thick lacy head. Full body, lacks carbonation, warm. Apricot and lemon. Grain husks on the back of the palate are actually not out of place. Drinks a bit heavy, not super refreshing, but enjoyable.
