4.33/5 rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Serving type- A pint can poured into a chalice.
A- Pours a dark yellow orange color. There is a small one finger white head that transitions into a fair white lace that seems to be sticking around until the conclusion. There is also some carbonation activity after the pour as well.
S- I am picking up Belgian yeast notes along with a peppery backing. This beer's smell reminds me a lot of what you would expect coming from a Saison. Overall a decent smelling beer.
T- I am getting the spice and Belgian yeast in the taste as well. There is also some nice mellow malt undertones. A nice tasting Saison.
I have been saving this beer for awhile now and once I decided to raid my cellar I wanted to give this one a try. This is a good tasting beer and is the second Surly offering I have had and their stuff has been up to par so far.
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.
