Reviewed from notes; originally 9/17/11.

Appearance is a cloudy orange color with two fingers of white head.

Bubblegum with some hints of peppercorn, and some clove.

Follows the nose with bubblegum, clove, black pepper and some cracked grain notes.

Light bodied wuth moderate carbonation and a prickly feel.

Pretty nice and certainly refreshing but the bubblegum is a little overwhelming.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

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

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.

2.68/5  rDev -27.2%
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.

On-tap at the brewery. 5.8%

Served a fairly clean golden color with a bright white head that faded into a good collar leaving wispy, spotty lace. I get notes of peppery Belgian spices, cloves, citrus and bubblegum yeast on the nose. Flavors include all of those plus some cracked grains and earthy hops in the finish. Yeast is earthy, and I might detect a hint of mint? Mouth is slightly bitter but definitely refreshing, drying, and clean all around. I loved the flavors in this one and thought it was a solid saison.
