Bomber to Rock Art pint glass

A: golden honey yellow but pretty opaque without being cloudy with a white

S: there is definitely that farmhouse smell to it the hops are stinky smells like a saison should

T: the taste follows the nose with that farmhouse taste spot on with the proper flavors the only way to make this better would be to put it on oak.

M:smooth oily and extremely drinkable spot on for a saison

O: wow so I was really impressed heard good things so being from mass I have pretty lights a try and damn this is one of the best saisons I've ever had. Worth a try if you can get your hands on it for sure

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: poured into a duvel tulip to a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head that doesn't have a lot of retention
S: smells of fresh cut hay, spicy yeast, a bit of citrus, and some base malt aroma
T: some yeasty spice is up front with some of that hay and grassyness, slightly citrusy with just a hint of sweetness. swallow brings more spice from the yeast, and a bit of grassyness
M: lighter side of medium on the body with adequate carb that's a touch under prickly. slightly drying finish
O: Very impressive beer. Pretty Things is one of my favorites from the East Coast that flies under the radar. I was able to snag the bomber for 2.99 which is a steal.

bomber into Hardywood Park tulip. bottled in: August 2012.

A: blond body. pretty clear. head is bright white and pretty bubbly. retention is good. some clumps of lacing left behind.

S: eggy. yeasty sulfurs. floral. clementines.

T: tropical. some orange peel notes as well. bitterness is back there, but just enough. stronger at first than begins to diminish. finish is biscuity. reminds me of lemon cookies. not as dry as i would have expected.

M: mouth is rich with carbonation. medium body.

D: pretty solid saison, i do wish it was a touch dryer than it is, but that is my only serious complaint. otherwise quite enjoyable.
