3/5  rDev -12.5%

Poured from s 12oz. bottle into a Portsmouth Brewery tulip glass.

The color is a hazy yellowish orange with two fingers of foamy white and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a bit musky banana with a tease of citrus aroma. There s bread crust aroma here in the nose that acts as a spine keeping things rooted in a field-like character.

The taste is a bit banana but dipped in a earthy bitterness that seems to scrape the taste buds and leaves a bready flavored barrier of malt that is hard to miss. There is a sweetness that is here but is only holds for the first layer then gives way to abrasive bitterness.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a lightness that lays on top. Then it let's a smack of malt smoothness slide in a spiked end that leaves the palate a bit dumbfounded.

3.87/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, straw gold in color, hazy

Smell: wheat, funk, and light apricot

Taste: This one follows the nose but with the apricot being more pronounced

Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, light in body, moderate carbonation

Overall: Probably the best of the special fruit beers Beer Works is offering this month. The base saison is enjoyable and the apricot compliments it nicely. I had a couple of glasses. Not the most complex saison but a nice relaxing summer beer.
