Poured into a pint glass. This one pours a cloudy pale straw with just a thing layer of white foam.

The aroma has a aroma of pale wheat with some hints of lemon zest in the background. The pallet is similar with pale wheat malt flavors and a bit of a bitter hop finish.

The body is nice and light with good carbonation. Overall this is real enjoyable. A nice afternoon drink.

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.
