2.76/5 rDev -25.8%
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.

16oz can from j47paco. Canned 9/10/13. Served in a goblet.
Pours hazy straw yellow with three fingers of snow white head. There's a lasting haze accross the surface that leaves plenty of lace.
Smells of hay, pepper, yeast and lemons. Pretty straightforward.
No surprises in the taste. Grassy, herbal, funky yeast, wet hay, lemon zest, bready and some pepper. As in the nose, straightforward saison.
Crisp, thin body with sharp carbonation. Dry, lightly bitter finish with lemon peel, wet hay, yeast and bread.
A good enough saison yet it doesn't inspire me much. Ok and light enough to possibly be refreshing but not something I'd seek out.

Pours a hazy medium straw color with a huge bubbly white head that quickly spiderwebs itself away. The aroma is lemony, funky, a bit tart, light bready malty sweetness hides deep underneath. The flavor is funky and yeasty phenolic. Almost like stressed yeast at work here. Very light lemon and pear with bits of clove and pepper. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick watery mouthfeel. Funky tart and yeasty saison, far from my favorite in the style.

From a 16oz can, purchased from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Brought back to Sydney and shared with Sam & Rich.
Pours a creamy, solid, hazy straw colour, with a coarse-bubbled, but extremely persistent head of white that leaves some faint streaks of fine lace. Body is light, but fluid and holds some fine carbonation. Looks pretty good.
Nose is lovely. Bright lemon sherbet sweetness, Belgian yeast funkiness, and a pleasant peppery note. Acidity is clean and bright. It's very aromatic and very well-integrated. I like it a lot.
Taste is most certainly disappointing after the aroma. Definite yeasty, bready characters come through, without any sense of bright acidity. Instead, it's slightly flat and floury, with a long, drawn-out watery weakness towards the finish. Really low on flavour and complexity. I'm extremely unimpressed—the aroma was so good, the palate was so not.
Feel is smooth and long. It would really work if there were more flavours to expose, but it feels a bit of a waste here.
Overall, wow—this is surely a disappointment. The aroma is so good, and it has so much potential. But at the end of the day, it really ends up pretty mundane and not that interesting. It's such a shame.
