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

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange with a large three finger foamy white head. The head recedes into a thin cap leaving heavy soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is green apple, light tart cherries and yeast.

T - The taste is tart cherry, green apple, lemon peel, and yeast with some white pepper in the finish.

M - Light body with medium/high carbonation. Crisp watery mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - A decent Saison. The cherry adds a nice touch of tartness throughout the flavor. A nice lawnmower beer.

$ 2.29/16 oz can ($ 0.143/oz) at the Lager Mill, Frankenmuth, MI
Can coded FL 436 09/24/16 BEERCOS.COM at 36 degrees (Hotel reefer temp) into a hand washed and dried BV snifter
Aroma – cherry, but faint. As it warms, the cherry fades and the yeast begins coming out.
Head – large (Maximum five cm, aggressive pour), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to an irregular three to five mm ring and thin rocky layer
Lacing - none
Body – medium amber with pink tones, cloudy
Flavor – some cherry and some light yeast phenolics; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate – medium, creamy, lively carbonation

A drinkable beer, but putting cherry into a beer does not automatically make it wonderful or even better than average. This is an average wheat beer. If I’m ever in a restaurant and it comes down to a choice between BMC and this, it’ll be tough. One and done.

Bought a four pack of 16 ounce cans. As I poured this I initially noticed a lager-like odor, like a PBR. This was gone by the time the can was empty and a faint scent of cherry was what I smelled. The taste was a light saison and the cherry taste was obvious to meet, but not strong. Light summer-beer feel, thirst quenching. Love the can art.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 9/24/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off whtie head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart cherry, lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, bready malt, and light cherry notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart cherry, lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of yeast spiciness and slight fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, bready malt, and light cherry flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice saison style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, bready malt, and light cherry flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. There wasn’t really all that much cherry flavor going on, but the base saison was well done for the style expectations. A nicely enjoyable offering.
