look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 oz can. date towards the bottom of the can is 12/21/13. no indication of a best before or canned on.
A: a slight hazy on a straw yellow body. head is very fluffy and bright white. retention is great . clouds of lacing.
S: very fruity. a little bit of bubblegum. pears. a mild black pepper. being this heavy on the fruit brings a lot of sweetness.
T: a light, fruity saision. not barny or funky. a mild grain in the finish that dissipates into dryness. fruity throughout the drink. light fruit. pears similar to the nose. good fermentation flavor.
M: good carb, good mouth. pretty spritzy.
D: not too shabby. no off flavors, good fermentation flavor. not having my socks blown off, but a very drinkable, tasty saison.
Serving type: can

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is opaque straw, head is white, nice smallish bubbles, good fine carbonation; head lingers very well with some lacing.
Smell malt forward, mostly light pilsner and biscuit; yeast off notes and some subtle hoppiness release as the glass pulls away.
Taste is great, clean and simple malt flavors, that are not sweet as the dry finish and yeast flavors takeover. Malt notes are biscuit and pils; yeast byproducts are some phenol and bananas and clove.
Mouthfeel is also very good: crisp carbonation and dry finish that is not too hard on the tongue.
Overall, a great farmhouse or simpler saison - not over complicated, and exceptionally easy drinking. My vote for beer of the summer season.
