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.

Poured from 12oz can into my Schlafly tulip.

Appearance: medium yellow-golden hue with plenty of haze. Head is a thick finger of frothy ivory foam which dissipated slowly leaving a good lace on the glass. Great!

Smell: moderately funky with a hint of sourness and a little bit of toasty malt. There's a good grassiness here, too; it's more like a bière de garde to me. Not bad at all.

Taste: wet and funky, with a bit of sourness and plenty of earthy notes. I think it comes together a little more smoothly than the aroma. A very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a quite-creamy texture. It's all I need.

Overall: a little bit piquant, but overall a very tasty and drinkable saison.

A: Hazy orange, slightly fizzy head.

S: Saison funk, banana, clove, belgian yeast, toasty malts

T: Effervescent banana notes with typical saison funk, clove like notes (somewhat like a hefeweizen), slight Belgian yeast notes, lemon like drying by the hops on the back end.

M: A little thin for a saison. If they were going for a sessionable saison, they nailed it. If not, this seems a little light for the style.

O: Saisons are usually a hit-or-miss with me. This is somewhere in between. I love nearly every beer from Wiseacre I have had the privilege to enjoy. This one is ok. A little better than average, but not the usual home run I have come to expect from Wiseacre. This is worth a try, but if you have not tried other Wiseacre offerings before, go there first.
