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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Date: 4/13/14
Location: Whole Foods Cambridge
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pours a foggy pale straw in color. Nearly impossible to see through except in light. The head is impressive on this beer as a moderate pour gave me a head about two thumb widths. The head retention in this beer impressive as well.
Aromatics: The beer has the aroma of a very light saison. I'm instantly struck by the wheat which is very grassy. The aroma is very acidic almost like a lemon pulp that has dulled.
Flavor: The flavor is readier then I would have expected given the aromas of the beer and the acids aren't as harsh as I expected. Quite nice actually. The wheat is still very grassy but quite lovely and now I'm starting to pick up the spices that I was expecting. A little coriander and pepper.
Mouthfeel: The body is light to medium with an an effervescent carbonation. The pepper lingers on the tongue and help makes the beer quite enjoyable.
Notes: Probably the most enthusiastic "Pop" from a cork I've ever had in a beer. I'm curiously amused and interested.

Huge thanks to mattvandyk for knocking this beer off my wants list!

750ml C&C bottle; batch 002. Cork comes out with an assertive pop.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Straw pale yellow bodied beer with moderate haziness. 1 full finger of head that drops down to a ring around the glass.

Smell: Lots of wheat malts. Fruity yeast. Hints of banana and clove.

Taste: Slightly sweet wheat and bready malts. Mild lemon tartness. Fruity esters and banana yeastiness. Hint of clove spiciness. Hint of white pepper. Hint of earthiness. Finish has a grassy and floral hops that contribute a lite bitter bite.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate and almost high carbonation levels. Crisp, refreshing, clean, bright, and so very sessionable. Slight creaminess in the carbonation as well. Slightly dry finish.

Overall: This is a great table beer, I wish that more breweries made table beers. Light easy drinking beer with lots of flavor! I am a huge fan of this beer. If I lived on the east coast, I would have this beer as a staple in my fridge! Paired great with cheesy garlic bread and hawiian pizza!

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.
