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

4.03/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with a finger of bubbly light head. Straw yellow with some darker orange accents. Light random lacing. Very low active carbonation, especially for a saison.
Smell: orange peel and lemon grass jump out on the front. A slight, peppery yeast backbone with solid bready undertones. Easy, fruit forward aroma.
Taste: Spices and pepper are surprisingly present on the front. Rustic, earthy tones continue into the body. Lemony zest with some brighter fruit tones as well pick up on the back end. Finish is dry but refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is dialed back, yet still has the feel of a saison. Bright fruits mix well with spice tones.
Overall: No surprise Surly brings another high quality brew. Really enjoyed the carbonation in this brew which really made it an easy drinking saison. Excellent balance of fruits and spice.
