From: Whole Foods in Hillcrest (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $9.99 for a 4-pack
Purchased: April 16, 2014
Consumed: April 17, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a golden semi-clear color with two fingers of pillowy white head. A decent amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Average amount of sporadic lacing along the sides of the glass. Average-to-above average retention.

Smelled cloves, banana, peppery notes, tropical hops, honey, kiwi, green grapes, light Circus Peanuts, grass hops, hay, wheat, caramel and some floral hops.

Tasted pretty close to the smell, which was a good thing. Also go cloves, banana, those peppery notes, booziness, tropical hops, Circus Peanuts, kiwi, green grapes, caramel, honey, grass hops, floral hops, wheat and some mouthwash alcohol.

Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt finish. Tastes stronger than the 5.5 percent ABV.

This was a good beer, but not quite as good as I thought it would be. This won’t deter me from trying more Modern Times though. Decent.

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.
