A very pale yellow color with virtually no bubble activity going on, looking almost like a urine sample. The white head quickly dissipates to just a flimsy few scraps floating around on top and minimal lacing. The nose picks up a pilsner-esque wheat/cereal grain with a skunky oak edge. The flavor delivers a relatively light cereal grain, skunky bread, almond and light lemon-rice. It's a solid theme that goes down easily. The body is medium-light and the feel is effervescent and very refreshing. Though the looks are pedestrian at best, the flavor and feel makes this an easily recommended lawn mower choice with personality.

Literally right across the street from where I work in CT... worth a taste?
Appearance - I love the way saisons look... slightly cloudy, golden honey. This one is spot on. One finger of head on a pour.
Smell - I get the yeast smell right off the bat with a slightly fruity almost raspberry/strawberry note. Well balanced.
Taste - Slightly more hop presence than I'm used to, but well balanced. Not as much yeast as other saisons, but has a good malty quality with some of those bright berries I mentioned during the smell. Finishes bitter, but not overwhelming.
Mouthfeel - Medium carb. Coats the mouth well and fully hits all taste buds. Very nice!
Overall - Not my first choice for a saison, but I'd have this one again. Drink local!

A - Poured a 12oz bottle into a small snifter. Hazy, straw body. Thin white head develops and fades quickly. Little lacing.
S - Amazing. Strong fresh ground pepper.
T - Follows the nose with pepper, but it is complimented by sweetness, ripe banana, ever so light malt. They've got a winner of a yeast strain here.
M - Medium body, but highly carbed so it moves past the palate. Slightly sweet aftertaste. Dries out between tastes.
O - it might just be my progression into the Saison category, but I am really into this beer. It has a ton of flavor and complexity for a beer weighing in at 4.8%. Definitely try this one.
