3.85/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Hazy golden hue. Fair amount of rising effervescence following pour. Pours a 1+ finger, foamy, white head. Dissipates quickly, but not completely. Some slight, yet persistent, spiderweb lacing.

S: Sourdough, yeast, fermented raspberry, apricot, and orange zest. Noble hops on-board.

T: Funky fermented raspberry. Very yeasty, with a crisp hop bite, and a light orange citrus accentuate.

M: Light and crisp. Kind of hot, bitter finish, and an aftertaste of orange pith that lingers on the palate. High alcohol is unapparent.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is really nice. Fair head, with some slight lacing. Nose is yeasty and funky with some nice fruity tones and subtle hop presence. Light fruity components accentuated with a crisp hop bite, and an overall yeasty character. Light body with a deceiving alcohol content. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

3.08/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very murky orange/gold with a finger high layer of tight white foam. Below average retention leads to lots of sloppy lacing left on the glass that begins to slide down with time.

Juicy and boozy. Plentiful heavy fruit tones with pineapple, apricot and orange citrus, a bit of dank herbs and lemongrass too. Doughy malt sweetness with white bread crusts. Sluggish yeast and alcohol adds a cloudy fog of must and solvents.

Doughy malt with a patchy grain and cake batter sweetness. Some musty spice and herbs from the yeast and hops; pine, clove and orange peel but overall very sluggish and dank. Alcohol is kept in check by the yeast and vast malt.

Overly syrupy and cloying body, way too sluggish for a saison. Barely enough carbonation and alcohol rears its head often. Yeast adds some powder flavors but it doesn't substitute for a drying or refreshing feel.

If this really were General Lee like on the label it would never get off the ground. A sluggish body, weighed down by the load of 'moonshine' and just not enough bright saison flavors to overcome those faults.

3.79/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottled on 07/03/13.

A- Pours a murky medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a curvy ring behind.

S- Sweet, juicy aroma with notes of pineapple and orange plus some light malt. A bit of booze and zesty yeast.

T- Some citrus comes on first and shows more fruit notes like grapefruit and tangerine, then comes some bitterness and yeast richness. Finally, there's a substantial malt backing and some alcohol punch at the end. All the flavors, including tart, bitter, citrus, sweet and so forth, come together but don't quite meld in a way that makes them enjoyable. They're just sort of...there.

M- Moist with a dryness on the back end. Medium carbonation with a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Unique, but nothing exciting. It drinks nice for the ABV. Sort of an Imperial Saison that doesn't hit the mark.

3.41/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bomber into snifter

A - poured a slightly hazy yellow-orange color with a smallish 1 finger head. Minimal lacing with the head dissipating rather quickly.

S - hoppy aroma takes the forefront. I get some citrusy aromas, resiny, lemongrass, and a bit earthy hop tones. Also sone piney hints as well. Also a weird rubbing alcohol smell

T - flavor follows the nose for the most part. A little earthy muskiness in the taste as well as orangepeel. Alcohol heat is subdued but a little taste of it

M - feel is a little heavier than desireable but, then again, this isn't your typical saison.

O - this feels more like an IPA than a saison due to the hopped up taste and I know that was the intention here. Not bad, but prefer the more traditional version of this style.
