2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Minerally yeast nose.
Cloudy grey orange, low lace.
Peppery light necrotic yeast notes, citrus, fermented fruit. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, fennel finish. I really don’t get what drives the brewers over here to try to make a Saison into a strong winter warmer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visual: Pours hazy golden orange-brown with a smallish creamy head, a thin layer of retention, lots of steady streams.
Nose: fruity apple and white grape juice. (lvl-4)-pungency.
Attack: super crisp, incoming sweetness
Mid-palate: immediate alcohol detection, light-medium sour, (lvl-8)-sweetness, (MAIN) prune, Sprite (lemon/lime soda), toffee malts,
Finish: raisin, mild bitter hopped tingly sweet finish.
Summary: This one is a little too aggressively sweet on my palate, but does have interesting flavours. Overall I enjoyed the textures and flavours but not the sugary/booze hit.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Cloudy amber color, small head. The aroma is sweet, there is some plastic, bread. Sweetish flavor, malt, with a strong bread character, light fruitiness, strong flavor of yeast too, and moderate spices; correct bitterness.
It seems well off target.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught) Served in a pint glass. Pours a lasting frothy white head atop a sediment filled golden-amber. Nose of pepper, lemon. Very light bodied and easy to drink - zesty, highly-carbonated with a mild lactic finish. Strong sense of ginger through the palate. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Pours a very cloudy ruddy chestnut colour with foamy head. Incredible and potent aroma of plum, pepper, toffee, strong malt. Taste is a little more subtle with just a hint of sweetness. Full-bodied, flat and smooth. A well-executed, rare treat.
