3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a light copper glow and a very thin, single centimetre tall off-white soapy head. Aroma of grass, light malt, earth, wheat and some more rather pungent malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and light flavours at first with some coriander seed, light curacao, bunches of wheat and some complexity from yeast, but rather mild. Aftertaste shows a lot of dry characteristics with some light hops showing through, but also some dry floral elements and a bit of grass, all finishing with a nice coriander seed freshness and even a hint of super light clove. Overall, a decent saison that is definitely on the lighter side, but not a bad beer at all. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, Eye Street NW), DC on 23-June-2015 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington almost a year later on 31-May-2016.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy straw with off-white head. Nose was hops, citrus, some yeasty funk. Tasted like a hoppier blonde ale, not enough funk or yeasty flavor for me, came off as a heavier blonde ale. Seemed mailed in.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a two finger frothy white head. The nose is slightly sweet with some honey, bready malt, lightly fruity, a bit of yeastiness. The flavor at its base is pretty nice, a rather classic saison at first, but then finishes with a honey and floral like sweetness. Not sure I dig the sweetness in this one, it doesn’t seem to fit with the style for me. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, there are good and bad points to this one, but it is quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
appearance: hazy light straw, bright white head, medium lacing. aroma: sweet grains, light funk, slightly floral and tropical hop notes, with some banana and bubblegum that’s reminiscent of a hefeweizen. taste: as the aroma indicates. finish: lingering sweetness, a bit spicy, with delicate floral hops drying things out a bit. notes: Very flavorful for a low-abv beer. A little overly sweet and missing some of the saison funk I usually look for, but it was overall quite nice.
