look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A: Light copper in color with a white fizzy head that quickly fades. Excellent clarity. Very little haze.
S: Aroma reminiscent of Dupont saison yeast, sweet orange peel, grassy, some mild apple, and hay.
T: Sweet, more tripel like than a Saison, though Dupont and Avec Les Bons Voeux are on the sweeter side too. Definitely thinking they use Saison Dupont yeast in this one. Some fruity earthiness, hay and grassy on the finish.
M: Great mouthfeel. Smooth, great level of carbonation, candy sweetness on the finish.
O: I would drink this again, but it feels and tastes more like a tripel and is on the sweeter side of my personal preferences.
Serving type: can

3.59/5 rDev -10.3%

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.
