Champagne-corked wine bottle served in pint glass. Batch number 001. Cloudy orange in color with intense cabronation and a massive white head. Subtle yeast-fresh aroma.

Flavor is quite delicate, with sour citrus fruit notes and a suggestion of wheaty/graininess. Surprisingly, it works well with the heavy carbonation. And for an American take on farmhouse ale I am very pleased with how gentle the sourness/funkiness is. Not bad at all, though I'm guessing this particular bottle would have been better when it was fresher.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, MA.

Appearance (4.25/5): Unfiltered and golden yellow with a creamy merengue like head of white foam.

Smell (4/5): Typical saison yeastiness. Beautiful barnyard and lemony, grassy aromas. Touch of wheat and rye like spiciness (don't think the brewer is actually using those ingredients). Citric hops that are quite assertive for a Saison and make this a less traditional interpretation of the style. They aren't overwhelming, though.

Taste (4/5): Follows the nose nicely: black pepper spice, hay, fresh cut grass, orange zest, lemon, and grapefruit. More pronounced hop flavor than a traditional Saison, though the hops don't overwhelm the other flavors that result from the yeast and light malts.

Mouthfeel (4/5): Dry finish that is pleasingly lemon-like. Medium feel. Great medium high carbonation that helps clean the palate on each swig and deliver the assertive grassiness of the beer.

Overall (4/5): This is another solid beer by the guys at Mystic Brewery. It's pretty, and it smells and tastes very good; that being said, it's not that unique from other American interpretations of the Saison style. Therefore, I have to deduct some points. I'd love to have this beer again and see what I think next time, though.

Serving type: on-tap
