look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
App - decent-sized white head, dispersed fairly quickly. Pale straw color, decent clarity
Smell - Yeasty pepper aroma, somewhat generic Belgian
Taste - Flavors are subdued but has a Belgian character with a bit of pepper lingering into the finish. Flavor profile very clean.
MF - Light-med body, med-high carbonation. No astringency or warming. MF feels right for the style.
D'ability - Subtleness of the Belgian character and clean flavor makes this one very drinkable. A "lawnmower" Saison.

4.45/5 rDev +19.6%
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

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
