A: Light tea color. Forms about a finger or so of very, very light pink colored head that reduces fairly quickly to just a hint of surface coating. Light lacing.
S: Nice cherry aroma mixed with a bit of yeast and yeasty spice.
T: The flavor is mostly cherry, but it's a dry, unsweet, fermented cherry flavor. Not exactly tart cherry - just not very sweet cherry. Then the saison flavors come into play. Yeasty spice, pepper, lemon rind.
M: Lighter bodied. Easy carbonation. Very mild bitterness. Dry mouthfeel.
O: I saw this one listed as one of Draft Magazines top beers of the year, so I was excited to give it a try. Unfortunately, this beer misses the mark. As much as I love Saisons, the addition of cherry really didn't do much for me, as the cherry really didn't come across as very "cherry-like" while the Saison qualities are overshadowed.

Acquired via trade
Slightly hazed golden with a very small white head. Not a lot of visible carbonation, especially for the style. Small dots left down the glass.
Mild aroma of saison yeast with just a hint of straw, dried grass, and very mild cherry, if I search for it.
As with the aroma, the flavors are all nice, but quite mild. Saison yeast, dried grasses and hay, and just a hint of fruit. Nothing off, but a fairly boring take on a fruited saison with Brett.
Thin-medium bodied with low carbonation.
Very drinkable beer on a scorching hot day, but relatively boring, all things considered. Perhaps I should have sat on this one for a while and let the Brett do some more work. Regardless, it's tasty in this heat.
