3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve had the 2009 earlier version, and I remembered how much I enjoyed that brew. Well, this one is no different! Cloudy, thick, citrusy saison, hint of hoppy citrus malts. Many people add an orange, which gives it another flavor. Well done. Yards is definitely an underrated brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly bready aroma, some spicing, poss coriander lemon, has a distinct wit beer character... Clear light golden amber, small white head, nice lacing... some very light banana and bubblegum flavors, lightest of belgian notes... medium body easy drinking...

I don’t have much experience at all with sour beers but this seems ok to me. Murky color is appealing smells intriqinging. Tastes bitter and refreshing. I like it ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a white head. Slightly funky aroma, typical saison phenolics. Alcohol is a little rough on the palate. This was ok but didn’t really come together the way I would have liked.

The hops are nice but a little too bitter. Great lacing. It is refreshing and would taste good on hot summer day.

Tap. Pretty clear with big white head. Nice for the summer, no to spicy. Not my style, but I actually enjoy this one.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry yeasty and slight peppery. Bitter and peppery. Dry and yeasty finish. Simple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle into a snifter. Pours a very, very nice light blond orange. A few fingers of head which dissipates into a whisp of bubbles on the liquid. Great crisp aroma of pepper and lemon. Lots of carbonation in the mouthfeel, it’s better once it calms down a little. Super tastes of pepper, lime, yeast, metal and funk. Overall, it’s a darn solid saison and a good drinker during summer. Just enough alcohol so you can drink one or two. I’ll buy again, especially for the price.

Cloudy yellow orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is funky spicy and a bit fruity. Flavor is spicy and fruity. A not sweet. Would have liked it a not drier, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL. The pour is a clear golden with some decent carbonation generating a medium, pillowy, white head. Nice retention but no lace. Nose is heavy esters with banana and clove similar to something like Duvel or an Abbey Tripel. Taste is metallic, sweet, very grainy and cereal heavy. As it warms you can get some of the numbing clovey spice and heavy spicy yeast. A little heavy and husky on the palate for saison but pretty competent and nice. Much better than I expected.
