@ Tyler's (Raleigh)

Served a murky cider color in a Mystery tulip, topped with a small head that gradually dissolves to nothing. Aromas of apple and peppery Belgian yeast. Flavor leans a bit more to the pear side of things, but the pomaceous fruit quality remains. I didn't really notice the rye explicitly, but it may have contributed to some of the subtle spiciness. Phenolic and tart with a a soft dryness in the finish. Despite being labeled as a "refreshing summer beer", I found myself thinking about soggy, mid-Autumn, New England days...funny.

On tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh

A - hazy orange with a yellow hue; thin cap of dense, white head, good retention

S - orange, citrus, belgian yeast funk

T - citrusy, fruity, a hint of lemon, belgian yeast

M - medium bodied, a bit warm, crisp

This beer has good flavor, but the flavor leans towards a witbier rather than a saison. I didn't get any spiciness that I would expect from a saison. The alcohol is well hidden and it's really easy to drink. A very dangerous summer beer.

On-tap at Lucky 32, Greensboro, NC

A: The beer is relatively clear yellowish amber in color and does not have any visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down and left a thin collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with hints of sweet malts and grain.
T: As in the smell, the taste starts off with flavors of Belgian yeast and quickly transitions to flavors of malts, some of which impart sweetness.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This saison isn't as yeasty, spicy, or dry compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: on-tap

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. into a tulip.

pours a pale yellow with no head. smell is very faint with some spicyness. taste is quite nice though. traditional summer saison spices with a dry finish. very typical for the style but very enjoyable. medium bodied with no carbonation.

overall very enjoyable and drinkable. recommended.
