Appearance: 1/4 inch head, high carbonation, bright-gold in color, hazy
Smell: apricots and pineapple juice
Taste: apricots and pineapple juice dominate. Some funk and grass also there
Mouthfeel: sweetand funky with a dry end, light body, high carbonation

Pours a nice big fluffy airy 2 finger head that fades semi slowly with spots of soapy lacing, slightly hazy mostly clear golden honey colored.
Nose is quite nice, starting with the farmhouse saison aromas, grainy wheat and plenty of wheat like, light grassy straw like malt aroma, with light saison like spices, and a nice rustic farmhouse aroma, and hint of citrus peel. Then the hops, starting with a bit of a grassy earthy spicy hop character, with waves of citrus mixed in, a bit of tangerine and grapefruit as well, little earthy grassy terroir hops.
Taste brings a similar mix of saison and hops. Starting again with the farmhouse saison flavors, nice rustic farmhouse funk but lighter side, with plenty of wheat again, a little toasted, some grainy straw and grassy like malt characters, with mild saison spices and orange peel pith like bitterness with touch of tannins even. Then hops and plenty of em, again waves between the two characters, starting with the earthy spicy variety, bringing more grassy terroir flavors, and a big bitterness bite. then waves of mild citrus come through, with a light tangerine and grapefruit pith again, but unlike the nose these hops mostly get washed away by the earthy bitter hops. As it goes an interesting but slightly unpleasant lightly astringent spicy hop character starts to dominate a bit and moves towards the finish, and lingers for a while on the finish making the finish a bit too bitter. Finish is also dry but slightly sticky, with more light orange peel bitterness, and light saison funk.
Mouth is med bod, decent carb.
Overall pretty nice, a nice blend of saison with a decent farmhouse funk still leftover, hints of the spices, nice wheat and saison malt characters, all that blended nicely with a good and really interesting hop blend. The hops mix between the grassy noble hops, earthy terroir of the Japanese hops, and citrus slight fruit blend that mostly handles well, but the finish brings a bit too much astringent spiciness, otherwise nice.
Mystic again strikes gold with a saison. They have mixed results with other styles but seem to hit strong with saisons and this one does it again.

Bottle from Ball Square.
Pours a hazy yellow orange with a huge bone white head that dissipates quickly to a cap on top. Lemon and orange creamsicle aromas up front with a sweet light sugariness and a peppery yeasty funk rounding it all out. The flavor is sweet with candied orange dipped in a mix of honey and pepper. A little bit of biscuit and earthy hop flavor mixed with a general yeastiness rounds out the flavors here. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a slick bubbly mouthfeel. Decent beer, a bit bubbly but tasty on this summer day.
