a blend of four different saisons, this is easily the best thing ive ever tasted from harpoon. hazy and light golden as it should be. huge white head with great retention. I pick sorachi ace hops up right away upon the first sniff, lemony and fresh and mildly acidic. also smells like the same saison yeast I use, wine-like just a bit, with tropical fruit esters and bright juicy hop aromatics. the flavor is equally fresh and robust, with sorachi ace blending in a little better than it does in the nose. some subtle champagne yeast creeps in, as does vanilla sweetness, pronounced oak, and a soapy wheat malt. the fusion of flavors is really to die for, this is expertly done. carbonation is right there, upbeat and really cooking, dry finish, super super dry. light enough to drink a bomber, but satisfying enough not to want much more than that, this is a reasonably priced and fairly available world class brew, very little to improve upon. id love to see this enter their regular lineup.

The beer pours an oranging, golden color. The beer pours with a nice medium sized head of soapy bubbles that fizzles down to a scrim. In body, the beer is clean and clear of particles, though slightly hazy. On the nose the beer smells freshly peppery with a terrific grainy malt and a touch of coriander and peppercorns. Crisp yet funky yeast characters come through nicely, giving the beer a rich, almost caramelly texture to the nose. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweetly funky, with a nice dry finish and a light, funky acidity. Hoppy bitters also work well to balance the beer. In flavor, the beer tastes of crisp grass and hay, with a touch of caramel that moves into light, grassy funk. The finish brings thick notes of pineapple and light citric lemon that gives a small pop of tartness to the mouth. The finish lasts in the mouth for quite a while, layering complexity upon the pineapple, and eventually drawing back to the grassy hops, cardamom, and pepper spices which linger in the mouth. In the mouth, the beer feels crisp and sharp on the tongue with a slightly fierce carbonation, a prickly yet syrupy mouthfeel, and medium plus weighted body. The mouth is left with a light acidity, and some nice saliva around it. Overall, this is a superbly complex saison with great qualities being brought out by blending. This beer would pair wonderfully with any number of foods, and though its carbonation is a little fierce, it works nicely with the beer. This is one hell of a blended saison that really pleases the taste buds.

Pours a slightly murky orange-straw color with a small yet frothy head. I absolutely adore the smell on this beer- so much spice! Cracked black Pepper mostly, also orange zest and cardamom. Taste is very nice- really dry which I love, and actually really well balanced. This beer is a clear winner for me -

Pours a hazy, dark straw color with orange throughout, like looking down a fog-shrouded street but with bubbles. The white head develops so much and so quickly, you would swear it was alive and trying to get out of the glass NOW! No lace.
Smell is a well balanced mix of grass, must, hops, malt and some spices.
Taste is great with malt, hops, grass, spices, a hint of green apple and pear. Great balance.
Medium + body with tingly effervescence. Warming, but with a dry finish. Spices linger nicely in the after with the hops for a really amazing flavor that drives you to the next sip. Good stuff, Maynard.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on October 18, 2013.

It pours pale to golden yellow with a load of fizzy white head up top that settles down and laces as it goes. Active carbonation.

The aroma entices with Belgian toasted biscuit, floral or peppery notes, yeast, citrus, and grass.

The body is about medium.

The pepper notes that I get on the nose introduce themselves more formally in the taste with a little orange zing and toast mixed in. The finish is crisp, clean, dry. I would have this again.
