3.68/5 rDev -2.9%
Batch number: 011.
Pours a clear golden yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spice, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice earthy quality in the flavors.

OK a strange one here...
poured from bottle into tulip.
Really nice head on a slightly orange color brew.
Aromas of saison peppery notes but also a hint of banana like hefe yeast.
Taste is fruity saison with a lot of german hefe influence. Some peppery finish with a lot of fruity esters. I wish it had a bit more saison personality but the flavor is not bad.
My biggest wish is for a bit more dryness...it still has some somewhat residual sweetness but not bad.
Its a bit over malty but in general its a good brew. Not a seeker but worth a try if you see it.

Poured from the bottle a cloudy nectarine yellow color with two fingers of bright white head. Just a bit of wet lacing with this one.
Aroma of lemon, ripe tropical fruit and herbal notes and table sugar along with a yeasty mustiness.
Tasted of tangerine, lemon, ripe tropical fruit, spicy herbal notes sugar, yeast and crackers. Finished clean.
Medium bodied, sticky and dry with a moderate carbonation.
Perhaps a tad too sweet but still a tasty Saison from Mystic.

Pours a nice medium golden color. Fairly cloudy. Medium just barely off-white head. Good retention. Aroma is a nice mix of fresh malt, saison yeastiness and light fruitiness. I'm getting green grapes, white wine, peaches, blueberries, apples. Honey. Malt flavor is bright and fairly sweet. Mild pepper. Some very light funk. Mildly herbal. Taste starts fairly sweet with a good dose of honey-ish malt. Then, some apricot and grape fruitiness kicks in. Finally, the beer finishes with some drier yeast notes and a bit of lemony, floral hops. Lightly effervescent with some decent body to the beer. Tasty enough, but it's mostly well-trod territory. I remember liking Renaud a bit more, though I think this one is a touch more fruity. Still, it's a solid, well-made saison.

A: Pours a cloudy straw color with a fair amount of light white head. A film with some bigger bubble retains, leaving good lacing.
S: Sweet and yeasty, on the subtle side for a saison.
T: Fuller sweetness than the aroma suggests, leading into a lightly hoppy refreshing finish. The 7% isn't particularly noticeable except perhaps for a moment on the finish.
M: Medium body, medium to high carbonation. It's fitting for the beer.
Overall, quite good, and nicely refreshing without being too light.
