Draft last night at Sunset Grille, Allston, MA.

A- Slightly hazy golden body. One finger foamy white head. Decent retention. Rare spotty pint glass lacing.

S- Mild but pleasant. Border between spicy and fruity classic Saison yeast. Clean ferment. Pale cereal grain.

T- Slightly sweetness but more towards dry overall. Lemon zest, pear, Belgian spicy yeast, cereal, grainy bread and pink pepper.

MF- Very light body with just enough frothy and foamy texture to keep it from thin. High end carbonation and a lightly herbal bitter ending.

Light, flavorful and refreshing fruity and spicy Saison. Well fermented without any awkward leftover sweetness or off flavors.

3.82/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Serving: On tap at the brewpub, in a sampler snifter
Served: 14 May 2016

Appearance: Pours a copper color crowned with a soapy white head. Notes of gold around the edge, but the beer is definitely on the red side of the color scale.

Smell: Soft, normal saison notes- some faint coriander spice, banana esters, and wet hay.

Taste: Very similar to the nose, with influences from both the spice and the subtle banana esters. Picking up some white pepper notes, but very subtle.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium to medium high carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall: A good saison and one I would gladly have again.

Dome like start to the head. Settles to rim bubbles but leaves plenty of spots on the glass. Neutral gold color and nearly clear.

I smell licorice, coriander and white pepper. Very interesting and attractive.

Starts with a soft, pale malt base but the swallow is quite strong with black pepper and anise. The body is smooth despite the elevated carbonation. Short aftertaste. This is an easy-to-drink Saison that has quite a bit of complexity.
