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

Appearance: 1 inch head, cloudy, red-gold in color, high carbonation

Smell: cranberry, funk, hay, and light holiday spice/bread

Taste: funk, Belgian spice, hay, light tart cranberry, and sugar that that comes out as the beer warms

Mouthfeel: sweet start and funky/bitter middle that is less bitter towards the end, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: This is not a cranberry bomb yet the tartness and touch of it add a different dimension to this saison. Not my favorite from Mystic, but well worth a try. I appreciate the added dimension to a quality saison.

750ml bottle purchased as a single from Central VT somewhere. Corked and caged.

Poured into a Harpoon LE tulip, formed a 2" off-white head over the cloudy golden brew. Head sno-cones above the lip before receding ever-so slowly, with sporadic chunky lace. Aroma is effervescent, with a light tinge of berry.

Taste starts delicately sweet of cranberries, with a moderate tartness in the middle, and prickly hops through the close. Mouthfeel is reasonably smooth, and drinkability is pretty good. Wish it had a bit more sweetness and/or cran, but that might be just 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.
