This beer needed a review!

Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger head of white, sudsy foam. It left soapy trails of lace on the glass. Smelled of tropical fruit and grains. Tasted great. Slightly spicy with tropical fruitiness with a touch of pepper. It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish. This is a really tasty saison from a really good brewery.

Wiseacre "Tarasque" Belgian-style Saison
on tap @ Clawson's Pub & Deli, Nashville, TN

Notes: Looks like a witbier/hefeweizen: hazy/cloudy orange body beneath a full head of cloudy bright white; perhaps a bit too cloudy as a saison but that can be forgiven. Aromas of chalky yeast with some phenols and some fruit (mainly apple)... generally yeasty/fruity/spicy. Flavor is as the nose suggests with a fairly straight-forward grainy and slightly toasty malt base. Some earthiness adds depth of character. Pleasant balance. Slightly thin of the style, but OK. A median bitterness balances it, allowing the spiciness to take half of the responsibility for delivering a dry finish. Overall not bad at all with no flaws whatsoever, but it somehow left me looking for a little bit more. Still, worth trying to be sure.

very solid brew here.

looks like a golden ipa, but with a greyish sudzy head.. slightly high carbonation actually fits nicely on this saison.

perfect amount of saison spice-funk and sourness. kinda like a rye ipa met a sour and had a baby but on the light side. loads of sour pink grapefruit and a chalky sour lime-candiness. Sublimely drinkable. Best served very cold - which isn't always the case with this style... most of the time that mutes some flavors, here I think they pop when this beers really cold.

dry. sour berry and grapefruit bomb.. not good as it warms but great cold.

I live here in SE TN, and while there's some pretty slim-picken's, this is easily one of my go-to accessible/local brews. My fave: local brews are here:
Calf Killer's Scorned Hooker A+
Terrapin's MooHoo Choco Stout A
Dozier 109 A
Velas Helas A
Magnum PA A-/B+
Wiseacre's Tarasque A-/B+

This'll be my go-to when not springing for Sophie.
