A review based on a pint glass filled from a growler purchased earlier today at the brewery.

The beer is golden in color with a slight touch of haze. A good sized white foam head settles to a thin layer. Lots of rising carbonation.

The beer has a good aroma. It's not funky but does have a slightly musty quality. Lots of pale malts and maybe some wheat. There may be soem Belgian candi sugar as well; something is providing a distinct sweet aroma.

Good flavor. Lots of pale malts and a complex yeast that is musty and spicy. There is a dry sweetness in the finish.

The beer has a water feel, which seems to contrast with the dry flavors. Carbonation is high, especially considering this is a growler pour. It has bubbles like it was refermented in a bottle.

An interesting addition to this series. It wouldn't be my go-to Maine brewed saison (Oxbow has that honor), but I would drink this one again. I'm glad it was sold by the growler, not the bottle.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle date 02-28-15. Sampled on May 21, 2015.

Slightly cloudy yellow, heady pour. Lacing.

Aroma of toasted pale malts, Belgian yeast, thin spice, and thin grassy hops. No sourness or tartness to speak of.

The body is medium to better than medium. It holds together well and does not deteriorate into carbonation.

Lovely toasty Belgian flavors with nothing anywhere near sour. Clean and soft finish.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Note: this beer is not retired. I just bought this at their brewery. It's on for spring '15.

Appearance: Pours a semi-cloudy yellow with a one-and-a-half finger white head that recedes steadily over a few minutes. Lots of carbonation. Almost looks like sparklingly white wine.

Aroma: Peaches, grain, bread, some faint peppery spice.

Taste: Peaches hit the palate first, followed by a more pronounced pepper note than the nose indicated. Kind of yeasty and bready. Refreshing. Some apple notes in there, too. Not surprised to learn this is made with pilsner malt, as it has a pilsner-like character to it.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing. More summery than springy, but it works in both seasons.

Overall: Nice saison. Not as daring or challenging or flavorful as some of the others in this series, but worth trying. Matches well with most meals; I had it with a falafel salad and briefly forgot it was -10 degrees outside.

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

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a ring of lace around the glass

S: Fruity, spicy, and estery yeast up front, along with some light maltiness (pilsner and wheat). Definitely very yeast-note-forward, but clean

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the fruity and spicy notes, driven home by the yeasty esters. Pilsner malt comes out a little, along with more intense spicy peppery notes as it opens up. Finishes with moderate citrus and spice notes

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice saison that portrays spring nicely, especially when compared to their other seasonal saisons. Very easy to drink and stays refreshing throughout. Very much worth trying if you're into the style

A - blonde crystal clear body with bubbly white head. Ok retention with sudsy lacing.

S - huge cinnamon, peppermint, vanilla, banana, and spices

T - just like it smells. Dry start with pine, into spices, cinnamon, and into sweet bananas. Citrus in the finish along with a cinnamon aftertaste and heat

M - medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Slick and refreshing

O - this was a real surprise. Intense flavors and very complex. I can't say I'd drink more than a 12oz bottle, but I did enjoy every sip. Very impressed to try such a brew from Rising Tide
