tmoreau (4225) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2017
On tap for the Surly tap takeover as part of the 2017 Madison Craft Beer Week at Lucille. Dispensed to stemware showing a cloudy, deep orangey/gold color, with a fair, white layer of foam that reduced quickly to a persistent ring & film. and spots of lacing. The nose was light funk, esters as citrusy orange, and pit fruit apricot, with a bit of vinous nature. The taste was similar, medium bodied, tart & tangy, with lively carbonation, a pronounced earthy & tannic bitterness, and pleasantly dry finish.

piscator34 (2493) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of sour peach, oak, and vanilla. Flavors are of funky stone fruit, herbal hops, and some lactic sourness. Interesting combo of flavors, but its lactic nature makes it sit a little too heavy on the tongue for a saison.

badgerben (5058) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Taproom. Slightly hazy amber color with a thin head. Aroma of honey, grape must, vanilla, and flowers. Tart grape flavor mixed with dusty grains and dried flowers. Kind of like a pinot gris. A bit of a bitter bite still lingering despite the aging. Really nice.

Atom (2381) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle pours a hazy golden/orange with a large white head. Musky fruity vinous aroma, mellow funky Brett, oak, and yeast. Taste of Brett and Belgian yeast, sweet fruits, dry funky yeast, oak. Thats a meh from me. Price point is way to high for something that doesnt really stand out to me from similar styled Saisons. Its ok.
