Pours a murky yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spice, grass, and slight citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, spice, and slight citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, light, and refreshing.

a cool saison, my first modern times brew, drlovemd87 hooked it up like he always does. my favorite part about this beer is unfortunately the can. retro look with a quote from one of my favorite academics lewis mumford, who's monumental two volume work "the myth of the machine" has shaped my own academic trajectory immensely. the beer itself is good, generic on the yeast front, but will hopped with czech saaz, a combination i have dabbled with in my own brewing. the fruity clean nature of the saaz plays nicely with the saison yeast. its familiar but tasty and ultra refreshing. low alcohol and sassy carbonation make this a session saison for me. fruity aromas give way to a more bitter taste, showing the versatility of this hop. i wish the yeast was a little more unique, it makes the beer fall into the category of normal, which saisons should never really be, at least in my mind. what makes this one different is its hopping and its drinkability. if this were available in colorado i would buy it regularly during the hot months of the year. not way different from stillwaters classique, just a bit more hoppy. session saisons are coming in to vogue must be...

On tap at Tiger Tiger. Attractive clear golden brew in the Allagash tulip with a nice enough head. Pears and spice in the nose.
Pleasant funky, fruity, tangy taste. Some browned biscuity malt and a pear skin bitterness. Just enough substance while being frothy and refreshing. Malty flavors enhanced by the bitter, dry, yeasty finish. Thoroughly drinkable Saison in the lighter style.
Brewer rates this at 30 IBU, made with Czech Saaz hops. Some wheat malt and corn in the mix. This is one of the four year-round beers from Modern Times.

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.

Poured from the can into a tulip glass.
Gorgeous looking beer here. Opaque, and somewhere between clarity, and a glowing unique color. Green brassed yellow, a good solid column of middle carbonation, and a soapy to fluffy like bleach white head that grows at a nice three fingers tall. Clumps with a slow fall. This body color is really unique, can't say I've seen a saison with this color or character clarity ever in my life, really love it.
Nice saison nose, with a soft sense of malt chewy notes, and mild and toned down sense of dryness and brett quality. More sucrose and candi forward. Light breaded white toast a bit, but hints at more simple Belgian solid pale ale goodness.
The palate brings much interesting and different flavors. Nice wonderful controlled pepper and lighter bodied fruit quality. Apricots and pepper with real building black pepper finish. Quenching fruit punched body, with a nice light juiced feel, minimal carbonation that is not distracting.
Overall a very fun easy drinking saison that hints towards more lighter simpler pale ale Belgian character, with just a touch of good dried spice. Very memorable, and a good saison starter for those in the new as well.

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.
