4.26/5 rDev +9.2%
Sampling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper color with a large fluffy and frothy bleached white head of 3.5 cm.
The head fades to a thin edge layer fairly rapidly after the pour.
Aroma is bready yeast with some white grapes and pears mixed in with just a little spicy hop character.
FIrst sip reveals a lighter than anticipated body with very fine and tingly carbonation.
Texture is smooth and silky very easy to drink, enjoyable.
The beer gets a little cloudy towards the end of the bottle poured into my glass.
Flavor is grainy malt and some bready yeast, I also get some sweet fruit. Pears and some white grape again, as in the nose. The beer is amazingly drinkable and enjoyable.
I dont get any hint of the booze and the finish is dry and a little sweet.
Quite a nice beer that is perfect for a warmer day, I would pick up bottles of this again.

On-tap 5/20/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a light yellowish gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains esters, Belgian yeast, wheat, light caramelized malts and some citrus.
T: The taste starts with a touch of sourness and spice that is quickly followed by breadiness from wild Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. Then there’s some mild background sweetness from flavors of citrus and banana. The hops presence is very mild but creates a very good balance. The after-taste is bready and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: Tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid lighter Saison to drink for a long time.

Big thanks to beersndrums for this one! Another new brewery that I’ve tried because of this guy!
22 oz bottle poured into a globe at cellar temperature.
L – Pale gold color with a huge 5-finger creamy, frothy, white head that lasts forever. There’s some nice lacing going on here, too. Slightly hazy with a lot of carbonation bubbles.
S – Grainy, bready malt, citrus and banana esters, some grassy hops, and peppery and somewhat funky Belgian-style yeast. Really nice.
T – Starts off mildly sweet with bready malt and citrus and banana esters. Grassy and earthy hops come in next, followed by peppery and musty Belgian yeast at the finish. Tasty.
F – Light-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a creamy but crisp mouthfeel, and an earthy, musty, and dry finish.
O – This is a really nice saison. It fits the style to a tee and is very tasty. It’s very drinkable, and the 7.8% ABV is nowhere to be found. Thanks for the beer, Jared!

4.11/5 rDev +5.4%
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber color with a rocky head that leaves a few strands behind as it descends
Smell: Bready malt with a slightly toasty character; complex grains (porridge-like); a hint of fruit (apple, lemon and banana); white pepper and just a touch of farmhouse funk
Taste: Tart fruit flavors arrive first, with lemon, banana and apple cider tones; by mid-palate, the complex malt bill adds a range of cereal flavors; grassy hops arrive with the swallow; and the bitter and slightly tart flavors bring up the rear, though there is an unmistakable floral aspect to the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A very interesting beer with a lot of complexity in the flavor profile; nice to see the brewery go out on a limb, here

4.09/5 rDev +4.9%
Appearance: Poured a light, hazy orange into a Newport Storm tulip with a very small head that fades quickly and leaves surprisingly little lacing on my glass. This looks very much like a hefeweizen at first glance.
Smell: I get a bit of citrus, and some grassy undertones characteristic of the style. Not a ton going on here but still pleasant to the nose.
Taste: Definitely get the citrus tastes of orange and tangerine, with a belgian character from the yeast. There is a bit of sweetness here but not a ton, this is a very tasty farmhouse ale.
Mouthfeel: Wonderfully crisp and smooth, light carbonation, and this goes down extremely easily. The alcohol is masked extremely well and this is light drinking with a bit of sweet creaminess.
Overall: This is an awesome saison from Foolproof Brewing Company that I could easily drink a ton of. It is a perfect interpretation of the style and one of the best from Foolproof thus far. Definitely try this if you can.
