look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a nice light orange, yellow at the edges. A sunny, glowy shade of beer. Big puffy white head. Lots of lacing. A nice sheet of bubbles sticks around for quite some time. The aroma leads with sweet, fresh grain. It's followed up by a solid mix of saison flavors. Lemons, earth, grassy hops, light pepper, a nice mineral note, dusty barnyard and some mild funk. The taste is dry with lots more good saison flavor. It starts out with that fresh grain flavor. Then pepper, earth and some light stone fruit come in. It dries out in the finish, and the hops kick in with some grass and herbal flavors. Mouthfeel is light and easy on the palate. Nice beer. It's a very solid saison, true to Dupont's formula though no clone. I'd definitely be interested in trying more from Mystic.

A - Pours a very pale yellow with a very slight haziness. It has a huge 4 finger fluffy white head that hangs around for a long time. Excellent lacing.

S - Very, very, very yeasty and funky. Raisins are present with a very slight spiciness as well

T - Very nice spice to it. Corriander? A funky flavor. Quite yeasty and lemony. Good but different for sure

M - a lighter bodied beer especially for 6.5 Abv. Smooth with a creaminess to it

O - Great Saison. One of my new favorites. A very drinkable beer with an intersting flavor. Sasions are starting to grow on me!

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

Poured from the bottle a lightly hazy lemon-gold with one finger of thin white head. Wet lacing left behind.

Aroma of lemon, herbal notes, candy sugar and pilsner malts.

The taste and aroma were very much in sync with the lemon, herbal notes, candy sugar, pilsner malts along with a bit of saltine cracker and fresh earth.

Medium bodied and quite dry with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice Saison from the folks at Mystic.
