2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 Rather recent 750mL bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of peach and orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. Yet another try and still not a fan...barely even a saison in my book; too sweet without much finishing bitterness. Flimsy and watery mouthfeel. Appearance is excellent, though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Clear dark golden with good sized off white head. Light dried plums and raisins, dry grainy touch, light citrus and apricot, nice grassy notes. There’s some weird bitter dusty notes and a weird lasting plastic bitter finish. Otherwise quite nice, the malts are pretty dry, it has nice hops but not much yeasty esters for a saison. Medium bodied, dry feel and soft fizzy carbonation.
