3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a really nice golden hue with some haziness to it, well carbonated and has minimal lacing. The smell has some great floral notes, some decent spiciness with a hint or citrus/orange. The decent is really well balanced, minmial spice and mild sweetness and holds on really well. The mouthfeel afterwards mildly lingers with some mild bitterness and sweetness. Overall, this is really well balance of floral, sweetness, cirtus, spice, and tips the scales between a saison and potentially a triple.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at C&R. Big classic saison yeasty nose. Lemon and biscuity malts. Overly sweet on the palate. Gets kind of boozy on the palate and through the finish. Some pepper and sweetness on the finish. Classic American saison: too boozy and too sweet.

Draft at kedzie. From notes. Malty and bready with a little apple. A little on the fizzy side. Decent, but not really my style.

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a light amount of haze to it. A small head of white foam on top. Aromas of perfume, floral hops and a dried grass note. Lively carbontion and nice lacing. Flavors of grains, green apple, tart citrus, acetic notes, grass and hints of black pepper. Dry and herbal finish with a pretty heavy body for a Saison. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle dated 12/5/12. Orange gold with ring. Mild tart citrus and sweet peachy with some "in its own syrup" sweetness. Orange sweet fruitiness slightly overripe with finishing overripe orange peel rind gritty herbal bitterness and slight bitter fruity herbal cloy. Thick sticky body totally inappropriate (IMHO). Steers clear of cough syrup but the body is all wrong. Not good. Not sure I’ll finish.

A very nicely crafted Saison. The popularity of Farmhouse Ale’s are on the rise.
