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!
Serving type: on-tap

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.
