3.29/5  rDev +2.2%

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle code is 060131 061914, or something fairly close.

Pours clear yellow until the last bit of the bottle is poured in, when it becomes pretty hazy. Head is huge, almost disastrous, to the point where I couldn't pour the whole 12oz bottle into the pint glass. Head fades into huge peaks and valleys. Smell is apples and spicy, with lemons.

Taste is a bit of a letdown after the smell. Strange bitterness, dirty dishwater, a little bit of the apple and almost no tartness or sour.

Mouthfeel is thin and slick. Overall, it’s a decent beer.

Pours a nice dark golden color with a 3 finger head. Very frothy.

Smell is very hefe like. With lots of banana and grass.

I've never drank a Saison before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Taste is very spicy and peppery. Very strange complex after taste of spices and a little apple peal. Not very fun to drink. Nothing to offensive though.

Mouth feel is very watery. Not very smooth with it's weird after taste.

Probably won't be picking this up again. Would like to try more Saisons to see what the differences are.

3.14/5  rDev -2.5%

Pours a straw yellow color with a decent sized white head that stays around for a time.

Smells like hay, freshly mowed grass, and a hint of citrus.

Citrus starts out strong at first, then gets a bit grassy and finishes with a strong hops note. Leave a bit of lingering bitterness.

Feel is ok, can really feel the carbonation on the tongue.

Not a bad beer, but seems to not be very coherent. It could use a bit more balance and complexity to it, while refreshing, has a bit of an odd flavor note that keeps it from being one of the better examples of the style. I mainly bought this because i like the packaging and the label, but not one I'll be likely to have much more of in the future.

Pours out a light yellow color. Nice small form head very little lacing. It has a very strong citrus and hay smell great for summer. Mouthfeel was almost non-existent, the only flaw that bother me was the tast was incoherant for me. For only $6 dollars this was a decent beer great for hot summer days.
