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.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on tap @ Terrsas Next Door -Wayne, PA

Everything was fine until the middle of the palate to the finish hits hard with a string Lemon Pledge flavor. Overpowers & blows this beer up.
Coats the tongue and just too much chemically lemon flavor.

Could not finish the glass. Tried to but was just too over the top.
My co-worker ordered it and it was not a beer we'd try again.
