On-tap at Astoria Bier & Cheese on Ditmars. It's a fresh, easy drinking, and hoppy, but it's easy to forget this is supposed to be an American saison. The hops are classic, crisp citrus hops with a touch of pine and then a slight floral character that blends nicely with the spicy yeast character. The Belgian yeast really takes a backseat to the hops, and that's not a bad thing, just understand this is a lot closer to an IPA than it is to a bottle of Dupont. The body is drier and thinner than an IPA, of course, but the hops dominance is what I'll remember. Very nice beer, give it a try.

I had this beer on tap at Deep Ellum in Allston. It was served in a willi becher glass.

It poured nice and yellow with a slight haze. The head was thick but dissipated fairly quick. It left a nice lacing on the side of the glass. It smelled nicely of citrusy hops and just faintly of peppery spice. The flavor was very balanced. It didn't lean heavily towards the hops, nor did it lean favorably towards the phenols of the saison or the slight sweetness from the malt. There was just the right amount of each. The balanced flavor combined with the silky smooth mouthfeel made this beer very quaffable. I drank this much faster than I normally drink beers because it went down so easy.

Overall, this was a successful blend of two styles of beer from Sixpoint. It is a beer that you could go back to for round after round.

In tap at Whole Foods in Vienna VA

Poured into a pint, a hazy yellow with a good head and lacing

Initial taste is piney hops with a faint aftertaste of Belgian yeast

If the intention implied by the name is to do a sessionable saison, then the hop presence runs a bit counter to this, but the result is more interesting and drinkable.

Perhaps it should have been categorized as a Belgian IPA.
