4.45/5 rDev +19.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: A Belgianesque looker, with a massive foamy head perched above the hazy goldenrod colored liquid; plenty of lacing sticks to the side of the tulip
Smell: Bisquity malt, with a touch of banana, coriander and white pepper; some grassy hop and barnyard touches, too
Taste: Biscuity sweetness, up front, with banana and a hint of honey; in the middle, the spices emerge, bringing coriander and white pepper as well as some grassy bitterness; in the finish, however, the sweetness re-emerges (along with some tartness) to provide balance
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation
Overall: Having had some mixed experiences with this brewery, I wasn't expecting anything quite this good; very pleased with this unusual Saison

22 oz. bomber.
pours out a very pale gold colour with incredible active carbonation holding up an immense inch high eggshell white head. belgian lace. peppery spice and lemon aroma supported by a pilsneresque malt base. the taste follows suit...nuanced cracker like maltiness blanketed by a white pepper spice note. slightly tart. there is a noticeable hop layer in the flavour profile that has both spicy saaz notes and a hint of domestic NW fruitiness. it's also a bit yeasty as per the style...finishing on the dry side. quite quenchable. this saison is a bit light in the body, with a dry, crisp, lip smacking mouthfeel. nice drinkability.
overall...this one scores points for it crispness and quenching qualities, but lacks in the taste department. I've been sitting on two bottles for a long time and wonder if this is past its prime. i'm not a great saison drinking mind but this offering failed to pique my interest.

on tap at the cambridge
Pours a hazed golden straw yellow color with a billowing, voluminous head, which continues to revive itself while drinking. Patchy lacing all over the glass.
Herbal and citrus notes in the nose with some peppery spice. Hints of funky yeast and cracker-like malts.
Snap of floral hops and lemon peel up front. Peppery and yeasty with soft funkiness. Hints of citrus and orange. Cracker and biscuit malts with a light sweetness. Finishes funky and dry on the tongue.
Lighter medium body, higher carbonation, bubbly and crisp on the tongue. A pretty refreshing saison for the season - I'd drink this again if it was on tap, but there's better options available.
Serving type: on-tap
