On tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

Served in a tulip, straw color, slightly hazy, with a finger or so of frothy white head that sank to a collar, and left some lines of lace on the glass. Aroma of grass and hay, peppery, earthy, pale malts. In the taste, toasted grains, pale malts, earthy hay, dry grass, spicy yeast. Walks the fine line between grissette and straight-up saison. Light-medium body, crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, nothing ground-breaking, but still nice for the style.

13 oz. on tap at Cafe Miranda in Rockland, Maine. Served in Oxbow's fun proprietary glass, which is sort of snifter-like.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy and kind of bright yellow with a wee white head that is gone soon. Some lacing on the way down.

Aroma: Smells of lemon, citrus, spices, yeast, grass, and spices. Nice nose.

Taste: Taste follows the nose with lemon leading the way. Nice dry finish with lemon and spices making themselves present. Also a little bit of a peppery note on the finish.

Mouthfeel: It's a little light, but not egregiously so.

Overall: This is a good, sturdy saison that works best on a summer day. I don't really get "rustic" out of it, as the ad copy suggests, but it is a darn good beer. Oxbow knows what they're doing, especially with saisons, blondes and pale ales.
