A metric can. Gotta love it.

Super yeast on this one. Earthy sweetness. Dark citrus tones. Quite robust, for the style. Consistent though. Feel is pretty good. Carbonation could be toned down a little bit. And the beer overall could be a little bit lighter and not so heavy. Still pretty decent though.

A gift from Brett, the cellarman at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, who knows how important the furtherance of The CANQuest (TM), especially with the Craft CAN revolution.

From the Slimline CAN: "Product of Belgium"; "Belgian Farmhouse Ale".

The Crack revealed another brimful CAN and I CANnot say enough good things about the trend. The Glug created a brief finger of tawny head with low retention. Color was a hazy yellowish-orange. Nose smelled deeply of peppery coriander, along with lemon zest, musty yeast, and an herbal/flowery scent, like lilac or lily. Zounds! I am so in love with the idea that they put something like this into a CAN! Mouthfeel was thin, not watery per se, but soft and caressing. Taste was riotous with so many flavors all trying to take hold on my tongue. The herbal floweriness worked in tandem with the lemon zestiness to give it a lemon tart taste that was reinforced by the black pepper spiciness and the musty yeast. I felt like I was drinking a liquid lemon poppy muffin. Finish, as you might imagine, was bone-dry. Boy, if this won't quench your thirst on a warm, humid 4th of July, I CANnot imagine what it would take.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. can into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of white head which recede into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A very yeasty aroma with nice hints of spice, fruit, and biscuit malt. Belgian yeast with a scent of funk along with some clove and pepper spices. Fruit hints of banana, lemon zest, pineapple, and orange. Hints of herbal and grassy hops. Solid malt presence with bready hints of biscuit, grains, and wheat. Sweet hints of candied sugar and honey. Has that typical musty farmhouse scent. Pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like the nose, a yeasty and zesty mix of funk, spice, fruits, and bready malt. Belgian yeast with a taste of barnyard funk and notes of clove and pepper spicing. Fruity notes of banana, lemon, orange, and pineapple. Grassy and herbal hop notes. Sweet Belgian candied sugar along with some notes of honey. Bready malt taste with notes of biscuit, wheat, and cereal grains. A good combination of funky, sweet, fruity, and musty farmhouse notes. Very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Very crisp and clean. Smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good Belgian Farmhouse/ Saison. Solid yeasty and fruity flavor with a nice malt balance and crisp smooth feel.

Light-handed Saison. Straw golden in color with very watery head, not much in the way of lacing. Very prominent honey and sweet clover in the nose, honey sweetness dominates the taste. A little on the watery side, but it tastes fresh and interesting enough. Would make a nice spring after-dinner beer.
