Mystic Table Beer traces its roots back to a time when water was never an option at the dining table. Beer from 1.2-4.5% ABV was served at the table as well as in the fields in the form of saison. Its flavor and texture are derived from our house yeast strain, ‘Renaud’ as well as traditional bottle-conditioning.

The beer pours a pale, hazy straw-yellow with a huge creamy head of tiny, eggshell white bubbles. The head sticks around at a finger and a half’s length, and leaves a lacing of medium sheets and strings on the side of the glass. In body, the beer is crystal clear and full of bubbles that race to the head of the beer. On the nose, the beer smells fresh and funky, with wonderful herbal notes and a strong grassy scents from the hops. The funk is distinctly from the Renaud strain, bringing some beautiful herbal qualities to the nose, much like Saison Renaud did. A light minty scent is also present in the smell. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and lightly tart with a soft, balancing bitterness from the grassy hops. In flavor, the beer begins lightly herbal with a soft funk that works nicely alongside the herbal flavor. Faint bread malts and bitter grass dance in the middle of the tongue, balancing out the beer in an elegant tug-of-war on the taste buds. Citric lemon notes can also be sensed in the funk, more akin to lemon grass than lemon fruit, but lovely and bright. The finish is clean with light wheat and bread notes, accented by minty hops, and the aftertaste is soft and fresh in the mouth, like bready mint. In the mouth, the beer feels light and airy in body, with a very soft carbonation that fluffs across the tongue. The beer is crisp and soft in mouthfeel. Overall, this is a hugely drinkable beer that is perfectly crisp and refreshing for a summer’s day. It is light, but is has some very nice complexity in flavor. I like this beer a lot, and would love to put it on a dinner table and pair it with foods.

Bottle I brought to share at AndrewK's tasting.

Batch number: 003.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spice, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with yeast and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and refreshing.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip- pours a hazy golden yellow color with two fingers of frothy white head, good retention, some nice little streaks of lacing.

Smell is faint, but appealing- very farm-y. Earthy yeast and pilsener malt are at the forefront. A very slight aroma of dry noble hops.

Taste is subtle but not boring- same flavors are present as in the aroma. A little hops up front, followed by grainy light barley malt, then then finishes with the earthy yeast flavors.

Mouthfeel is very nice- super refreshing. Very light body (but still has that grain backbone unlike, say, the All Day IPA), modest carbonation. This is a really good session beer, not for getting drunk but for drinking with food and for refreshment on a hot summer day. I would highly recommend it, especially since it's only 6.99 a bomber.

A: The beer is hazy light straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of yeast are present in the nose.
T: As in the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of Belgian yeast, although these aren't as strong compared to other beers in the style and there isn't any associated spiciness. Hints of lemons are also noticeable.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and can be considered sessionable. It would pair well with a meal since it doesn’t have any dominant flavors.

Note: Batch Number 13
