16oz can poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Pours a pale straw gold color...almost Bud Light pale. Excellent clarity with a two finger rocky white head with decent staying power and slowly falling to the surface with some sticky webs of lacing left behind.

S - Spicy, herbal, clovey, wintergreen. Soft malt base - grainy, lightly sweet, biscuity with some grassy hops.

T - Tart, slightly acidic up front that fades to some soft citrus, notably oranges with hints of lemon. This is followed by a dry, sharply bitter hoppiness that lingers to the finish and gets joined by some juicy apple flavor. Dry, biscuity malt complements.

M - Tart, dry, bitterly hoppy, medium bodied with a strong, fizzy carbonation.

O - Saison...maybe - with such a broad style definition, I guess it fits and I can't find a different style to call this either. That being said, it is a bit on the fringes of style - herbal, somewhat Belgiany, firm hoppiness, slightly tart...all sound like good saison descriptors. Something is missing or just off though...can't put a finger on what is missing, but it definitely is lacking something. Enjoyable still, but not one that I would run to again. Glad to try this out.

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.
