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.
