On tap at Meridian Pint. This is a collaboration with Coppertail Brewing Co.

Pours a hazy, cloudy pale yellow.

The aroma is a little sweet, citrus notes, a little peach and pear.

The taste is mostly citrus hops, a little bit of melon, and some spice. Moderately sweeter than I anticipated.

Light, sessionable and refreshing. Not a lot of carbonation.

On-tap 8/1/2015 at Armsby Abbey, in Worcester, MA served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light cloudy yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains strong Brettanomyces, citrus, Belgian yeast and light malts.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat, Belgian yeast and a light malt character. Then some tartness comes in from the Brett and citrus. The hops presence is very mild and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly tart but also a bit harsh.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are better choices within the style.

Classified as a grisette. Refreshingly grassy. The body is wonderfully smooth and creamy.

Light head but good lace. Very cloudy, creating whitish yellow color.

Vanilla and lemon peel are the initial aromas I catch.

Lightly sour but with a good hop bite. Not as earthy as some Saisons. Highly carbonated, spritzy. The swallow and aftertaste is like sucking a hop pellet.

On tap at Oxbow in Portland. Hazy pale yellow. Creamy white head. Sweet tropical hop aroma. Like a mango candy. Light wheat and faint yeastiness. Tastes hoppy up front. Less sweet that I expected. Tropical up front, then more citrusy. Light pale malt and wheat. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Really nice, simple, and drinkable.

I tried this on tap at Hunger N Thirst served in a snifter chilled

The color is golden with thick haze and white head. The smell is very tropical with a hint of honeydew melon. The feel is fruity with some sour elements and low sweetness with moderately high carbonation.

The taste is good with light bitterness and fruity hop flavor with complimentary yeast and dry finish. Overall this is a great saison, very easy to enjoy and refreshing
