3.8/5 rDev -5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance - Pours into my glass from 16oz can. Golden or a mixture between yellow and orange in color. Head fades almost to nothing, no lacing.
Smell - Subtle, slight Belgian yeast smell, nothing overwhelming, but nothing particularly exciting either.
Taste - Not a bad tasting beer. I get a bit of bubblegum, malty taste. A bit of fruit that I cant quite place comes along towards the end, and I get an aftertaste of a bit of spicy coriander and a familiar Belgian style aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Very smooth but perhaps a bit low on the carbonation.
Drinkabilty - Not a bad Saison, I think that it could have benifited from either a little more hoppy flavors in the aftertaste... or a little more fruit throughout.

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.
