22 oz poured into stemless red wine glass.

A: Tiny bit of white head. Good lacing and carbonation. Very yellow and cloudy. Got a lot of yeast in the bottom.

S: Fruity sourness.

T: Very light. Sour bitterness. Yeah sour. And hoppy.

MF: Chalky

OA: Don't dig it, not sure if its supposed to be this way or if drink a hot chocolate prior to this had an affect.

22 oz bottle into a pint snifter.

A: light yellow, fairly fizzy white head, nice lacing.

S: hay, yeasty, fresh, some zesty Belgian spice.

T: nice and light spice-peppery with a bittery finish. Well balanced. Have a difficult time picking out any more specifics.

M: light bodied, crisp, good carbonation.

O: a very good saison good hop/malt balance. Would certainly recommend.

Served from bottle into a pint glass.

A- Medium yellow in color (Rosco #12 straw for you theatre folk). Cloudy with a 1/4" of head. Looks appealing to drink.

S- Smell is less potent than other Saisons, I've had. Reminds me a lot of sea grass.

T- Smooth to drink, a good amount of acidity or sourness. I really don't like Belgians but this was an exception. I was able to get through this and think favorably of it.

M- Full bodied, doesnt dissappoint.

O- I liked it beyond any other beer I've had in its type.

Poured in a fresh pint glass from the fridge. Beer was fridge temp (pretty cold).

A – Golden yellow, very slight haze. 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly to a ring that hangs for the entire drink. Not much lacing.

S – Hop citrus and green apple, floral from the yeast a little bready.

T – The hops hit me first nice and bitter, some lemon, and bready yeast.

M – Nice bite from the hops and carbonation but then the saison comes through on the finish. The beer is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O – Overall I really liked this beer a lot of hop bitterness upfront then mellows to that familiar saison on the backend. I am glad I have another bottle to enjoy!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Cloudy, hazy yellow with a fluffy, bubbly white head.

S - Honestly not much there. Some malt and spice.

T - Bready, fruity, nutty flavors with spice notes. Great, subdued, balanced finish of spicy hops and fruity malt. Has a nice funky, farmhouse character.

M - Smooth and incredibly easy to drink. A sign of good beers to come from Pretty Things.
