12oz bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for $3.50

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads, grains, and citrus juice/zest. There is also some clove and a dry spiciness and a bit of a funk.

Overall – Very drinkable and enough flavour to keep you interested. I actually really enjoyed this one and will be buying more the next time I see it. I also really like the smaller format in 4 packs.

Pours a slightly firey golden with a white head. Aroma is spicey, some ripe banana, pepper, atouch of lemon and grassy. Flavor is spicey,, lemon, a touch of toasted bread, pepper and a touch of some earthy hops. Again a little alcohol comes through, which detracts just a little. A crisp active mouthfeel. Overall, solid saison that I am really happy to see in Colorado. One I will buy again.

Poured an orange-like gold with decent head and lace and a funky aroma, some spice and citric notes, and a little bit of spice and yeast but not much else in the fruit department. Taste is more of the same as a smooth, light to medium bodied beer passes my tongue with moderate spiciness, citric hop and light/tropical fruit flavors. Not much sweetness but beer is lively with lots of carbonation. I enjoyed this beer; consider it a simple saison that complements a warm day.
