4.13/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Shared 16 oz Can into a Pint Glass...
Appearance-Sunshine yello body with a 2 finger bubbly white head. Head dissipated rather quickly. Minimal lacing.
Smell-Some funk, lemon and apricot. For only 33 IBUs I can get some hops in the nose.
Taste-Upfront some nice citric hops. Lemon and Grapefruit. Apricot definitely comes through. Finish is very earthy and sweet. Very nicely balanced and extremely drinkable.
Mouthfeel-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated. Dry Finish.
Overall-Crisp and Refreshing under 7% Saison. Not too filling and easy to drink. Definitely one of my favorites for the style and surly is yet to dissapoint.
Serving type: can

3.59/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pint can poured into taster. 4-6oz.
Appearance: Golden ale, decent amount of head. Can't complain about how it looks in the glass.
Smell: This was the highlight of the beer for me. Tantalizing Belgian aromas, some malt underneath, what you'd expect.
Taste: Spotted Cow on steroids. A farmhouse ale for folks who haven't jumped full-on into the Belgian beer camp.
Mouthfeel: Average, not going to do anything crazy to your palate. Where Spotted Cow shines with a touch of corn, Cynic goes for a more straight-forward mid-level ale feel.
Overall: Alrgiht. Probably wouldn't spend $10+ on a 4-pack, but would like to try this on tap sometime. A decent lawn-mowing beer, a bit more Belgian than I was expecting.
