I am hoping to really run through some CANs today as The CANQuest ™ ramps back up to its normal operating speed! Here goes.

From the CAN: “A season delight”; “Made for Spring”; “There’s Nothing Finer than a Springtime Shiner”; “Est. 1909”; “Farmhouse Ale”.

The Crack! was music to my ears and my dance CANsisted of an inverted Glug, resulting in two-plus fingers of rocky, foamy, fizzy , bone-white head with limited retention. I wonder if it is something to do with Saison yeast that causes that type of carbonation. Color was a Solid Gold (SRM = 5) with NE-quality and of course, this was a clarion call for The Unholy Trio of Croesus, Midas and Mammon, all clamoring for a sip. Nose was slightly funky and musty, but in this one, the mixed fruitiness was much more pronounced. I wonder if they filtered theirs, given its clarity and reduced nose. Mouthfeel was thin, but effervescent, kind of like soda pop. The taste was much fruitier than in my previous Saison, which was more to my liking, but for hardcore Saison lovers, this might seem a bit pedestrian. Finish was semi-sweet with the yeast beginning to take ‘hold, but it was not as challenging as some/many (?) Saisons that I have had, even from a CAN.
