Had at the John Harvard's in Harvard Sq. on 2/27

A: This beer pours a cloudy burnt orange with a one finger of white head. Head recedes rapidly leaving wispy lacing along the glass.

S: Nose is slightly buttery and rather hoppy.

T: Taste starts with a buttery tone that carries throughout the beer. Belgian yeasts come through in the middle as well as hints of corriander. Finish has is all hops - grapefruit and orange peels come through.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, creamy body to the beer.

D: Nicely balanced, goes down easily. Not a beer that I could have more than one or two in an evening but that's more about style for me than the quality of the beer.

I drank this on tap at the Harvard locale.

The beer is a dark gold with a little peach touch to it. The heade is light white with not much retention, but the lacing is ok, leaving a soapy head for quite a while.

The aroma is light citrus with some floral and yeast, not much hops.

The taste starts off pretty sweet with fruit and cloves thing brings on a nice yeast finish.

The feel is a little light but has a nice full bitter finish.

Overall, this beer is pretty good, I'd consider a session saison.
