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

A- Crystal clear pale yellow body with a small white head. The head dissipated to a small foam covering.

A- Fruity notes. Smells a lot like a saison, lots of esters. A bit funky.

T- Not as funky up front, but that funk sits in the aftertaste(in a good way). Crisp and clean upfront. Some fruity tartness, lemon/grapefruit?

M- Light to medium light body. Moderately light carbonation.

D- This beer is wonderful. I wouldn't say it is incredibly interesting in any one direction, but all around it is an enjoyable wild beer.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

it has a weak head on it very little foam if any at all, with a sweet smell of soy sauce and or bbq. it has a tangy bana peal taste with a hint of molasses. it is sour and has a black cherry taste too very fruity and heavy mouth feel. i personally do not like beer or the way it taste but it wa sone of the bettter ones i had except the inlger taste in your mouth.

Tasted blind as part of Blind BIF #6

Blind beer #8

22 oz bomber poured into my Allagash Cervoise footed glass (had to look it up to actually see what this glass is called)

A - Almost clear, but slightly hazy golden with a monster pillowtop bleach white head. This craggy head decided to hang out for a while and watch SNL with me and feels like it wants to stay for the whole episode. Naturally, there's some smattering of lace as I drink. 4.5

S - Some really nice grapefruit and hay notes. We've got a saison for sure. A little bit of black tea and a touch of gym sock. A bit funky, but I'm definitely liking the nose. 3.5

T - Very nice. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Not quite as funky as I expected from the nose. This is actually much lighter with just some hints of lemon tartness. The first sip actually reminded me of a nice kolsch, but going back for more, it's definitely a belgian pale or saison. Not super complex, but light sweetness with a really crisp grassy finish. Also a little bit of stonefruit (peach) lingers on the tongue. I'm liking this. 4.0

M - Very light body and light carbonation. Surprising given the head, but these bubbles are so small and smooth I feel like I'm drinking a nice cask saison. There's just a touch of high alcohols, but it works. 3.5

O - Incredibly drinkable. not tons going on, but this beer is made extremely well. Did I mention this beer is drinkable? It's hard to just sip this beer as it goes down extremely quickly. Rare any more for people to be wowed by a non-sour/RIS/IPA/BA beer anymore, but this is just done well. I would happily drink this again as this bottle is going too quickly. 4.0

It's a little more clean than Saison vautour, so not that. Could be another McKenzie, but I'm pretty sure they only use 750s. I suppose it could be a belgian pale, but pretty sure it's a saison. I don't think it's Stillwater because those have been a bit more complex and overdone. This is just simple deliciousness.

Final Guess: Saison...but no clue on the brewery.

The reveal: New Belgium Le Fleur, Misseur?

Wow, i had this beer at the brewery a few years ago and was unimpressed, but it's pretty solid in the bottle. Guess I missed the style again, but close. The nose threw me off. Very solid beer. Thanks, Scott.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance- golden straw color and a slight haziness.
Smell- Bready fruity, and foral aroma.
Taste- easy drinking earthy, a touch of hops, and a very nice yeast flavor.
Mouthfeel- very drinkable. Carbonation is just right.
Overall this is a nice Belgium Pale Ale. Won't blow your socks off, but won't disappoint.
