look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a: pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with half finger white foamy head that doesn't stick around too long. Not quite the hazy straw yellow I expect with a saison but I don't mind that.

s: dried apricots, malt, saison yeast, not much hop aroma to speak of

t: malt sweetness up front, then apricot and peach dominate with a bitter, dry finish and some breadiness as well

m: light to medium mouthfeel with good carbonation

o: a solid saison, unlike any I've had. I really enjoy the strong apricot notes.

13.25 oz tulip glass. Served on tap at Cambridge Common.
a) poured with a finger thick head. Hazy body. Orange red in color. Thin and sticky lacing.
S) fresh strawberries. Subtle caramel aroma.
T) Carries some of the tartness of a saison or maybe that is the rhubarb shining through. The strawberries add a pleasant spin to the taste. Sharp flavors up front then a mellow finish with some earthy tones and a slight bitter bite.
M) Smooth. Medium body. Dry in the finish.
D) A delicious saison. I might just order another one.

Had on tap at the New World Tavern Plymouth, MA

Appearance: minimal head, orange-brown in color, cloudy, low carbonation

Smell: strawberries and hay

Taste: big strawberries at the start--light rhubarb and hay, then a big wheaty middle, light pepper and Belgian spices at the end.

Mouthfeel: light carbonation, medium-light bodied, slightly sweet and funky

Overall: A pleasant and different take on the saison style. Almost like a strawberry wheat crossed a saison. I really like this. Could not drink it all day, but very refreshing.

On-tap 4/25/2012 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, strawberries, Belgian yeast, bananas, some spice and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of strawberries, bananas and spices. Then some bready flavors of wheat, Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sweet.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while.

On tap last night at the brewery. Served in a standard pint glass. Very hazy orange body. Thin head. Smell was sugary and citrus-like. Taste was very interesting. The info there says that this beer was brewed with 90 lbs of rhubarb and 240 lbs of strawberries. It had a bit of the taste of a saison, but it really was more like a fruit beer. Mouthfeel was nice, as it was smooth and I found it very easy to drink, like a witbier. The higher abv was not noticeable. An unique beer that I read was a take on a homebrew club recipe. Worth a try, because who knows if they'll make it again. Everyone in my group liked it.

Clear bright gold with a foamy head that disappears.

Yeasty and musty up front, with some fruit sweetness in the nose.

Very pleasantly surprised by the yeasty note tied to the fruit sweetness. A little to rich, but I still liked it. Needed a little more coarse bitterness. The fruit shines more than the grain and bitterness. OK balance.

Medium to medium light body.

I lik this brewer a lot, and they usually come up with solid beer. This has some flaws, but it is still very likable. Worth a shot.
