Had on tap at Monk's. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy golden/yellow color with a small white head that had very little retention and minimal lacing.

S: Lots of wheat, some honey, faint citrus, and some spices, cardamom comes to mind.

T: Similar to the aroma, more spices come out as it warms with some pepper. There is a good bit of wheat and honey and citrus to a lesser extent.

M: Light to medium bodied, crisp and easy drinking.

O: Pretty good saison, liked the low abv, extremely drinkable.

Billed as a spiced, table stregth saison. Pale, golden straw in color, thin cap of soapy white head. Scent brings moderate amounts of ground pepper, herbal notes, citus zest and faint floral notes, grassy, lightly sweet, fresh and damp straw. Taste tones down the nose a bit, spices are the star but not overpowering, solid grassy, floral and zesty hop presence, light damp straw and some fresh grain round out taste. Light bodied, dry. highly drinkable and lightly flavored saison.

Growler courtesy of yourefragile. Served in Tired Hands stemware. Hazy light straw color. Good white head. Nose hits with honeysuckle from the start. Touch of pepper. Great wheat and hay. Dry. Bitter. Incredibly drinkable and something I could easily have taken down the whole growler by myself.

On tap at the brewpub. A very pale, lightly hazy brew with a small, slowly settling head and nice lacing.

Aroma of citrus; lemon and orange; honey; pepper; subtler spices; wheat. Flavor combines light bitterness and honey sweetness; citrus and hints of pepper and other spices; some light wheaty notes. The cardamom addition is quite subtle. Finishes dry.

Light bodied with medium carbonation and the smooth, easy drinking feel that characterizes pretty much all of Jean’s beers. Extremely drinkable session-strength saison.

On Tap at Tired Hands

Table Suckle sports a nice bright gold color with a nice firm inch of white stuff on top leaving some streaks. A lot of bubbles rising up. The nose on this is faint but layered with bready yeast, citrus rind, lime, and some faint hops. Warming brings out some spices as sage. Up front the taste is layered and not tilting towards a particular flavor. A slight spice of sage and pepper with some fresh wheat to wash it down on the end. Light and refreshing. Feel is nice and light with crisp and not over pressing carb. The aftertaste is faint with spice. A true quencher. A big glass is a easy task.

On draft at Tired Hands

Pours a pale straw golden color with a fluffy white head and ample lace. Earthy aroma of straw, grass, lemon, and pepper; leafy and floral with mild sweetness. Flavor is not as bold as the nose or Tabel Verbena, but more balanced and drinkable. Citric presence from nose is muted, floral and grass dominate and finish with a slight honey like sweetness. Light medium body, with a crisp dry finish, well carbonated.

Thanks Michael, beer is yellow and hazy with a thin white head of small bubbles, some lacing, low retention, moderate to low carbonation.

Aroma is spicy, sweet, hay, earth, citrus. Smells nice.

Beer is light and a little watery, everyone I was drinking this growler with loved loved loved this beer, I thought it was OK. My opinion was confirmed at the bar with an 8 ounce pour. Interesting super light beer but the flavor falls a little flatter than the aroma. Still very enjoyable but I don't think I'll have it again.
