Fluffy, large-bubbled head. Settles slowly. Very cloudy. Neutral gold color. As the head settles, it leaves some spots on the glass.

Mildly sour nose. Light alcohol.

Thin bodied with a very high carbonation level. Lots of citrus sourness to the tongue. There's a bitterness without a distinct hop flavor, just simply bitter. A classic Saison with the earthy/sour notes throughout.

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

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, clear, gold in color, high carbonation,

Smell: lemon, funk, hay, pepper

Taste: lemon, funk, hay, pepper, and dry hops

Mouthfeel: funky with a light bitterness, medium-light bodied with medium carbonation

Overall: A solid, clean, and enjoyable saison that tastes dry hopped. A good saison by just about any other brewery, this one is probably my least favorite of Mystic's seasonal saisons. I can see myself getting an annual bomber, just not more than that.

Provided to me via the lovely Mrs mixylplik3, thanks for the opportunity.
Opens with a huge pop and displays what seems to be the Mystic signature level of carbonation. After the foam settles I'm left with half a glass of light golden beer with a ton of sticky white lace on the sides of the glass. Smell is spicy and fruity. Pepper, green apple, and lemon mixed with a bit of yeasty bits and candy sugar. Wow this doesn't seem as dry or as spicy as the nose was leading me to believe. Sweet sugary honey malt with bits of candy sugar and green apple. Slightly bready almost crackery bits with some pepper and coriander mixed in for flavor. Medium to thin body with a raucous level of carbonation and a sweet almost sugary mouthfeel. Seems drier and a bit spicier than the regular version. Both are great saisons, but I enjoyed this one a little bit more.

From 04/27/12 notes. Big thanks to jslot38 for sharing this, I've been wanting to try their stuff for a while. 750ml bottle from batch 3, the cork popped off by itself and hit the ceiling, but surprisingly no gusher.

a - Pours a hazy dark brown yellow color with three fingers plus of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, yeast, spices, pepper, and some bready malts. Nice bananas and not too much pepper, very nice nose.

t - Tastes of bananas, spices, pepper, fruity malts, oranges, bready malts, and yeast. More fruit then the nose; I like it a little bit better.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, pretty smooth body.

o - Overall a very nice saison. Nice bananas in the nose and oranges and more fruits in the taste. If you like you saison's fruity I'd suggest this one, and would like to have it again.

Thank you DrewShal9 for this!
750 mL bottle, batch 3, poured into a tulip

A- A slightly hazy golden yellow with a massive four finger fluffy white head.

S- Light fruits, apples, yeast, peppercorns, spices, hint of lemons, some florals notes.

T- Light fruits, apples, pears, and a touch of lemon up front with a lot of pepper and earthy spices in the finish, bready malt backbone.

M- Smooth, light body, crisp.

O- A good saison that was worth the time to seek out. This is my first beer from Mystic and I can't wait to try more, have two other beers in my closet and might pick up some when I head to Boston this weekend.
