Off flavors in yeast. Not every locally sourced yeast strain is worth using, alas.

The pour is a slightly hazy medium golden color with the faintest of a pink tinge to it and a huge fluffy white head that slowly recedes to a cap on top. The aroma is sweet lightly bready malt beneath a whole lot of yeast funk, a tart fruitiness, and a hint of phenol. The flavor is quite a bit nicer than the aroma. A sweet sugary maltiness up front melds into a tart fruitiness, cranberries obviously come to mind. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart bubbly mouthfeel. This is probably my least favorite beer from the Mystic Saison brewery. It's a bit too heavy with yeast and phenols for my tastes.

Enjoyed at Tree House Brewery. Reviewed from notes:

A - Poured in to my Tree House glass a clear light golden hue with a thin, fizzy quarter inch head that fades to leave minimal wisping.

S - Lots of esters here. Fair amount of booze...where are the cranberries? The beer claims to have cranberries in it but try as I might I cannot find them.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, good esters, light banana, hints of lemon and light barnyard funk and Belgian yeast. Again though, where is the cranberry?

M - Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Nice carbonation here.

O - Overall, while not a bad saison, nothing irks me more than a beer that states to contain or resemble one flavour or ingredient only to not deliver. No cranberry = no money from my wallet.
