3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear golden color. Thin white head, dots of lace. Really nice fruity estery nose. Nice lemon peel, orange peel, spice (clove). Zesty, estery, kind of savory taste. Slightly bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation. Some interesting lemony tartness. Mild floral hops. I wanted to be skeptical, but I can’t help but dig it. Spiciness impedes drinkability slightly, but this is still a really nice American saison.

Draft. Pours hazy golden amber with a white head. Yeasty and fruity, with some banana, spice, mild peachy fruity sweetness, and a yeasty spicy finish. Decent. Not for the saison purists, though.

Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear medium amber with a round white head. The aroma is yeast and citrus fruit. The flavour is medium sour with a surprisingly malty caramel acid citrus palate. A somewhat different saison!

Draft to taster. Looks good; a slightly hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells yeasty and spicy with light hop notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An okay saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, grapefruit and white grapes. Flavour of wheat, caramel, white grapes, Belgian hops, floral notes and grains. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a citrusy bitter finish with dry white grapes. Really well balanced and reminds me of Avec Les Bons Voeux.
