1 PT. 6 FL.. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Bottled April 2013

A - It is pale yellow in color and hazy. There are small particles of yeast suspended in it. It is topped with a couple inches of white head.

S - It has a nice fresh lemon scent. I also detect a little must.

T - The taste has some lemon and grass flavors. Then some bitterness sets in. At first I thought the bitterness was too much for this beer, but after half a bottle the flavors are meshing well.

M - Medium.

O - This is a refreshing saison. It hits the spot after working in a near 90° day. The bitterness is more than I care for in this style, but it is not overwhelming and compliments the lemon and must, so I won't complain.

650ml bottle served in a Lawson's snifter 6/15/2014.

A- hazy golden-straw yellow body, half finger white head with minimal retention, no lacing.

S- Pale malt biscuitiness, a bit of saison funk, not a whole lot else. It smells like an inferior Saison DuPont.

F- As in the nose, it tastes like a crappy knockoff version of Saison DuPont. Its actually more bitter than I'd like from a saison of any kind. No tartness, a lot of breadiness.

M- Medium bodied, not thin at all, good carbonation and a bitter earthy finish.

O- Not a fan of this one. I would not recommend going after this; definitely go after CBC or Trillium or even NIght Shift if you have to get a saison from the greater Boston area.
