3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium to dark golden yellow, nose is very fruity saison esters, hint of bubblegum, taste is great, reminds me exactly of Cynic Ale.
Growler @ City Growler, Cumming. Pours clear, golden. White head. Fruity ester aroma. Loads of apricot, green apple, white grape juice, raisin, floral honey, loads of ginger. Flavor is of straw, spice, herbal hops, lemon oil bitterness. Oily character coats the palate. Thin bodied, loaded with flavor. Finishes with a bitter apricot flavor with the flavor of ginger without the spicy tingle of ginger, and loads of jasmine. (3388)

Tap @ the brewery. Pours a hazy deep gold with an orange hue. Nose was quite fruity, citrus, grassy hops and banana in there as well. Very clean finish, damn tasty. JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/10/10. Hazy amber pour with a medium white head. Nose consists of banana, sweet malt and bit of herbal and peppery character. Banana flavor that is sweet and candyish all the way through. Not my thing.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark gold/orange with a small white head. Fruity and floral with some honey and ginger on the nose. Sweet honey and honeydew melon flavors but also spicy and floral as well. Hops are light but and a touch of herbal flavor and moderate bitterness. somewhat drying, but still sweet through the finish. Medium bodied with higher carbonation and a touch syrupy. Leans too heavily toward sweet and fruity/spicy for me, but not too bad overall. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Sweet malty and fruity aroma and taste. Decent.
