Cask at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy golden color with a slightly off-white head that leaves solid lacing.

Smells of light malts and twangy wheat with good amounts of pears and lighter amounts of breadiness. Also present are mild amounts of indistinct spices.

Tastes better-integrated than it smells. Smooth light malts up front are joined quickly by slight wheat twang and light citrus flavors. Midway through slightly sweet pear and heavy bready flavors come into play before being overtaken by leafy hops that carry through to a mildly bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth carbonation.

Overall this is a solid beer, and one that is easy to sip during the warmer months. Worth a shot. As a quick aside I tasted the tap version and found it brighter than the cask version.

Pours a cloudy amber-yellow with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale cream-yellow head that persists. Aroma is rich, malty and lemony with a whisper of sweetness. Flavor is malty and somewhat tart with a lemon overtone and a whisper of honey sweetness. Texture is smooth and sassy. Great for a hot afternoon.

Appearance: Well hazed, bright, straw-colored body with two fingers worth of long-lasting, white foam.

Smell: Tangy-scented, creamy of wheat aroma supported by notes of dried lemon peel, bitter orange zest, meadow flowers, and blend of sugar and spice.

Taste: Ah, tangy, tasty malted wheat stirred up with some lightly grainy barley. Candyish, sugared sweetness. Doses of dull, earthy spices and pungent orange peel. Also some citrusy lemon present as well, as is a meager dash of Persian melon juice. Some soft floral hints. Light earthy hop character and bitterness at the midpoint. Then, it's back to a rotation of wheat, sugar/spice, and citrus till the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-low carbonation.

Drinkability: Surprisingly delightful! I don't know who the hell Sarah is, but I'm damned certain she's pleased with the fine saison brewed on her behalf.
