Poured into a tulip with a large fluffy head. Lots of sticky lacing. There is a slight bit of haze.

The aroma has a lot of pepper and a little dry wheat malt.

The taste is spicy as well. Light grassy hop blends well with the musty yeast filled finish.

This is light bodied and delicious. Another refreshing winner from Oxbow. (334 characters)

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. (807 characters)
