A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, fruits, yeast. Taste is the same, some fruits, malts, a bit of spice, tasty and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

A- Somewhat murky golden yellow pour to several pint glasses to share. A thick, puffy white head forms over a finger with good retention. Thick ring leaves plentiful sheets and webs of lace.

S- Saison yeast spice and zest with a large amount of what reminds me of a sour mashed Berliner. Hefty cracked wheat and a definite lactic bacteria influence.

T- Follows the nose quite well with a mix of Saison yeast and something that really feels like a Berliner with only a mild tartness. Huge wheat, oily orange peel, coriander, pepper, lactic funk and bread.

MF- Pretty much on the light side of things with a slightly frothy foamy consistency. Carbonation at a medium level with light tartness.

Had a Saison feel but at the same time there is a huge portion of the flavor that reminds me of the sour mash Berliner I home brewed. I like the combo but wonder what the original aim was. Round Guys solid so far for me.

I am now fully immersed again in The CANQuest (TM) after several months of purging my backlog of bottles! It is good to be back.

From the CAN: "Farmhouse Saison Ale"; "Looking like a queen in a sailor's dream. With that golden floral hopped complexion, soft and sweet, a medium bodied beauty exalting her perfumy sin. Sundown Saison, a quick dry finish reminds you to best take care; get your own and stop hanging around my back stairs[.]"

The Crack! revealed a brimful craft CAN and I even got a little spritz on my fingers when it happened. I got an inverted Glug started and watched as it filled my glass with beer and foam. Lots of foam, settling into two-plus fingers of rocky, bubbly, bone-white head with low retention, falling in on itself like an abused souffle. Color was a hazy, almost cloudy, Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose had the characteristically lightly funky, fruity sweetness that goes with the style. I CAN dig it. Mouthfeel was kind of full and effervescent. The taste was a bit more tart than I was expecting, kind of lemony, slightly funky. I really liked the dry, peppery finish. No one is ever going to CANfuse me with a Saison fan, but this was pretty good.

Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is gold, head is off white, medium bubbles in the froth that dissipates quickly.

Smell is a pretty even blend of bready malt and dry yeast off flavors; malt flavor is biscuit and pilsner; yeast off flavors are light phenol and subtle spice.

Taste is more bready malt than most saisons, reminds of a hefe/saison blend; wheat and bicuit are dominate at first then dry out with the yeast bite.

Mouthfeel is sweet at first from the bready malt flavors then dries and bites the tongue a bit.

Overall, a interesting take on the saison with some hefe or wheat bear like malt flavors.

Golden yellow in color with a deep haze. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Grainy, bready malt aromas with a nice balance of both sweet banana, tart citrus and bready yeast notes. Light peppery notes are way off in the distance. Medium bodied with thick oily feel up front that is slowly consumed by crisp, tight, spicy carbonation through the middle to the finish. A flash of banana flavor followed by tart citrus flavors up that turn spicy and peppery through the middle to the end. Bready and yeasty flavors underneath through the middle. Finishes crisply and semi-dry with lingering pepper notes and hop bitterness.  Not the typically intense tartness and spiciness that I've experienced with this style....which I really like. The aromas and flavors had a pleasant balance and subleties that made this refreshing and easy to drink.
