2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle to Tulip glass, about a 8oz serving. Nose is spicy, apple cidar and some orange peel maybe, a little sour tartness to it. Picking up some dried fruit but not very potent. Pours clear and a vibrant orange color. High carbonation with a rocky off-white head leaving laces on the glass. Taste is not too bitter but has a tart spicy yeast character than shines here. Light bodied and very carbonated, almost just foaming on the palate. Finish is fairly short; its dry, crisp and refreshing. After a few sips, I started tasting a slight toffee malt flavor in the finish. Fan of the style, but this beer is just average.
Hazed, dark golden to amber in color liquid, with a moderate sized fluffy, heavy cream colored head. Toasted bread and mild herbal scents. Looking for a touch of spice but not finding much. Light caramel sweetness in the flavors with just a hint of tart fruit. Fairly sharp and bubbly in feel. Long malt and light bready yeast finish. I like the whole, better than the parts. I could see drinking this while in the field working on a hot summer day. 6/11

bottle. golden with two finger head. terrible name. i love saisons but this is a pretty much a shitshow. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle: The aroma is moderate-heavy dusty yeast, light pepper, apple, faint citrus, some strange grassy/floral notes. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze. It has a very large creamy yellow-tinged off-white head that leaves a lot of soapy clumps on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of apple and strange citrus flavors. The finish has lots of dusty yeast, moderate herbal notes, lemon peel, pepper, grass, and floral notes. It’s light bodied with heavy carbonation that comes across prickly at times. Overall, this just tastes strange and the flavor combination is rather unpleasant. Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2012
It’s heading in the right direction. Hazy, orange hues with a moderately pillowed head. Citric fruits and bready yeast, though the flavor seems a bit thin. Moderate palate without substantial acidity. As for the name, I could do without any suggestion of "phlegm". Bottle.

Not a fan. Tastes like an over ripe piece of old fruit. Tastes spoiled. Barely finished the half a bottle I had. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2012
12 oz bottle; thanks Tyler!! Pours clear dark orange with huge, eggy white head fading slowly; earthy lemons, mild spice, maybe some rye; grassy and light wheat; drinks with a doughy dryness and stale lemons; chalky dryness in the finish; not sure what it is, but there is a spice or malt type rubbing me the wrong way; kind of think it’s rye; either way, it works more in the aroma than it does flavor wise JK (6252) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Bottle from Merwin Liquor, Falcon Hts. Gold color and a very tall, long lasting, white head. Aroma has lots of brett. Flavor is dry with more yeast, as well as an herbal character with dry grass. Bone dry finish.
