Off flavors in yeast. Not every locally sourced yeast strain is worth using, alas.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Look: Transparent orange with a thick white head. Moderate activity.
Nose: Fruity yeast with hints of pepper, hay, Belgian sugar, honey, green bananas, and farmhouse funk.

Taste: A wash of green bananas, pepper, and lemon rind cover the palate. Then come a tart cranberry note with no sweetness. A malt slowly arrives with just a hint of Belgian sugar which gives way to a farmhouse funk that is lightly tart and floral.

Feel: Clean and easy drinking. Light-Medium body. No booze. Only lasting effect is a light tart on the tongue.

Overall: A funky saison with just a hint of cranberry. It seems the yeast did all the heavy lifting here with tons of Belgian saison complexity

The pour is a slightly hazy medium golden color with the faintest of a pink tinge to it and a huge fluffy white head that slowly recedes to a cap on top. The aroma is sweet lightly bready malt beneath a whole lot of yeast funk, a tart fruitiness, and a hint of phenol. The flavor is quite a bit nicer than the aroma. A sweet sugary maltiness up front melds into a tart fruitiness, cranberries obviously come to mind. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart bubbly mouthfeel. This is probably my least favorite beer from the Mystic Saison brewery. It's a bit too heavy with yeast and phenols for my tastes.

Enjoyed at Tree House Brewery. Reviewed from notes:

A - Poured in to my Tree House glass a clear light golden hue with a thin, fizzy quarter inch head that fades to leave minimal wisping.

S - Lots of esters here. Fair amount of booze...where are the cranberries? The beer claims to have cranberries in it but try as I might I cannot find them.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, good esters, light banana, hints of lemon and light barnyard funk and Belgian yeast. Again though, where is the cranberry?

M - Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Nice carbonation here.

O - Overall, while not a bad saison, nothing irks me more than a beer that states to contain or resemble one flavour or ingredient only to not deliver. No cranberry = no money from my wallet.
