4.03/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: 4.5 Very clear, yellow-gold with a two finger off-white head that dissipates rather quickly.

S: 4 Very floral with strong Belgian yeast and lots of esters. Smells a lot like a Belgian strong pale ale with the typical cloves, orange, and banana. Not quite typical of the style, but still very nice.

T: 4 Similar to the nose. Pretty strong Belgian yeast with slightly more sweetness than I would expect. The flavors are less estery and a bit more inline with a classic saison, however there’s not a lot of nuance. The most interesting aspect is the slightly hoppy and bitter finish.

M: 4 Good mouthfeel, but could use a bit more carbonation. Perhaps it would help some of the flavors become more apparent.

O: 4 This is very solid beer, but nothing incredible and not a great example of a saison. It seems to be a bit more of a hybrid. Still very enjoyable and crushable.

3.6/5  rDev -3.5%

Appearance: Way too much foam, at first, until I settled into a very gentle pour; a huge head covers the clear golden liquid and leaves strands of lace

Smell: Bready and herbal, with fresh cut grass, white pepper and cilantro tones

Taste: Bready, up front, with the grassy edge developing; cilantro and white pepper emerge in the mid-palate and lead to a rather herbal finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: More of an interesting lawnmower beer than a Saison, I am afraid

Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity

This beer pours with a single finger of head that quickly subsides to a small amount of lacing. The beer itself is a pale golden color with very apparent carbonation bubbles. The nose is yeasty, almost reminds me of nice hefewiezen but also has a nice bit of noble hop bitterness. The flavor is crisp up front with some nice hoppiness but this quickly mellows out to a straw like, somewhat grassy, peppery finish. The bitterness lingers on the palate a bit but in a pleasant way, definitely a yeast driven beer, very nice. Not my favorite modern times beer, but a very good one.

***This beer reminds me VERY much a slightly more tangy version of Allagash house beer.
