4.16/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured with an unfiltered haze and a thick fluffy peak of foam.
Perfect beer for spring weather.
S: bready malts, grassy, grape and apple skin
T: lots of fruity yeast character up front. The soft sweet malt character comes through and is very light and lively. A little herbal presence from the hops but not much.
M: crisp mouthfeel from the light body and ample carbonation.
O: the perfect spring weather beer. Light enough warm days but flavorful enough for the cooler evenings.

Tastes more like a Belgian ale than a Saison.

2.77/5  rDev -25.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: A clear, almost fluorescent, golden yellow.

S: Yeast funk, pepper, white grapes, and a lot of sweetness.

T: The flavor is what you might expect from a pilsener brewed with a Belgian yeast. This is more like a Belgian Golden Ale or a Belgian Strong Pale Ale than a Saison.

M: A bit syrupy.

O: I've liked everything else I've had from Modern Times so far. This is by no means a bad beer but neither my style nor what I was expecting.

Poured from a tall-boy can into my Brasseurs De Garde tulip.

Hazy straw body with a faint whisper of beige up top that recedes to a vague ring. Delicate lacing, poor retention.

Slightly floral and peppery aromatics with a hint of grain/hay (sort of like a feed store). I can't decide if it is "delicate" or just weak.

The yeast dominates the flavor profile, with a pleasing peppery/funky bite. Hints of citrus and dandelion greens lead into the dry finish. Pils character cuts through the wheat and corn (the latter really isn't helping anything here; and the additional two-row malt seems just like more filler), though any hop flavor is muted despite a mild but palpable bitterness throughout.

Thin bodied, with insufficient carbonation for the style.

I was expecting more given the high skills proven by other offerings from this brewery, but this is still a decent domestic saison and an excellent value for the style.
