Poured can into stemmed glass. Big head formed that dissipates fairly quickly to a lacy film on top. Nice hazy golden color. Nose has a bit of funky spice to it, not bad. Taste is nice, rounded citrus, a little yeast, spices definately come through, definately coriander, which I like. Mouthfeel is light, but not too light. Overall, nice and refreshing. Don't pass it up it's definately worth a try, it's not gonna knock your socks off, but its good beer.

Drank straight from the can. No discernible 'enjoy by' or 'canned on' date. Also, while currently listed as an American Pale Ale on Beer Advocate, this is most certainly a farmhouse ale.
Appearance - As noted, I drank this directly from the can, so I gave appearance the average. It seemed unfair to rate it high or low.
Smell - Some notes of lemon, citrus zest, a bit of subtle, hay-like funk as well. Hard to get a good read on smell through the mouth of the can.
Taste - Really light and refreshing, but with a yeasty backbone with notes of sourdough. The citrus zest comes through, with perhaps some notes of coriander and other light spices. I'm honestly surprised it's 6.4% ABV.
Mouthfeel - Creamy and delicate, with pleasant carbonation. A little bit of roundness from the wheat.
Overall a highly drinkable and affordable beer. This is the second saison I've had out of a can (Sneak Attack by 21st Amendment being the first), and it's quite tasty. This one may have to become my go-to summer beer based on how inexpensive it is.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, even with a good tilt a huge large bubbled head grew to almost 4 fingers. The appearance was a golden haze but almost cloudy, soon the head completely went away and left spotty lace at best. The aroma was acidic with a faint citric whiff, nothing much after that. Taste held a metallic herbal tang, some grapefruit bitter came through at the end. Somewhat dry, thin mouthfeel which left an empty spot where switching to a different beer would be ok...not a fan of this offering. Overall living in Lincoln I'm pleased with the 2 other brews from Blue Blood and will try more as I find them, the can has a great picture of a boar...but not much else.
