05/01/13 At Rattle N Hum, NYC On tap. Very nice. Not sweet nor sour. Well made & well balanced. Unquestionably session-able.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served on-tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY

A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops and just a touch of yeast spiciness.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of pale malts with some light to moderate flavors of yeast spiciness (black pepper and clove). There is a light to moderate amount of floral flavors from the hops. Very light amounts of bitterness which fades very quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I prefer my saisons with just a touch of barnyard funk or sourness in them and this one was just lacking that element though it was quite easy to drink. Not as much complexity in the smell and taste as I would like. Think I would not get it again.

On draft at Blind Tiger, NYC.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light caramel and smooth esters.

The taste consisted of round malts, a grassy hop and a pleasant soft ester.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty ale. Not too true to form for a saison however.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Served up a hazed, golden-amber body with a medium-sized, creamyish, white head.

Smell: A mingled, mixed aroma of waterlogged spices atop the base malt melange.

Taste: Initially tangy, but also a bit sugary. Slightly grainy. Some appleskin and apricot fruitiness. Some perceived 'heat' from the ginger, a little anise, too. Slight bitterness. Remains tangy, vaguely fruity until the drying finish with some lingering spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: If I were to line up my saisons in order of preference, Mowkeef would be right near the end.
