On tap:
Pours crystal clear yellow golden. Decent lacing especially considering light head on the edges. Mose reminds me of a meadow, grassy but somewhat floral, moreso than a saison/farmhouse nose. Definitely a little fruit, too -pear or apple.

Taste is crackers crisp, but a bit more farmhouse than the smell would indicate. Muted fruit taste from the smell, but in the end there is a strawberry-banana flavor (like from a yogurt). Fair amount of carbonation early, fading later. Body is light to medium, and a bit dry.

Given other reviews, maybe the keg wasn't the freshest. I have had this before (but it's been a while) and thought it more fruity than what I tasted today. Will have to revisit.
