Pours an orange color with two fingers of creamy white head.
Peppery with fruity esters with a light bitterness on the finish.
Follows the nose with peppery and fruity esters with some light bubblegum and finishes with a decent bitterness.
Light and effervescent with a prickly feel in the mouth.
I like this one in that it leans towards the hop side of the spectrum of Saison instead of the spiced side.

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.
Serving type: can
