A 16oz can poured a straw yellow color with a thick head, and nice lacing sticking throughout. This was a treat, its got an almost funky, grassy nose, and the mouth is yeast, flowers, malt, and farmhouse craziness. Some bitterness on the back? Not a huge fan of Saisons but being a Son of New England I like this one.

S: Pears. Orange peel. Chrysanthemum. Lemon. Slight clove. Wheat. Fuji apples. Grass. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
T: Lemon. Wheat. Pears. Clove. Grass. Slight milk sugar. Bitter gourd skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

M: Creamy. Crisp. Dry. Medium-bodied. Soft, tongue-tickling carbonation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
O: Drinks like a Session Belgian Strong Pale Ale with a Vermontoise twist. Main takeaway is the superb balance struck between the yeast and malt derived flavors as the hops only play a tertiary role as the "drying" agent of the brew. In true Alchemist fashion, however, the hops stand out regardless of how minor of a role it's relegated to; it's as if Delirium Tremens or La Chouffe was dry hopped with American hops after having taken a substantial downgrade on the ABV and body (thickness) department. Nevertheless, a nice enjoyable dry 7% saison to help me remind myself that the worst of the week is already behind me.

Smells pleasant and tastes bright. A little thin, maybe the 'Belgian' style?

16oz can. Pours a translucent yellow gold with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is yeasty and funky with some cloves, coriander, lemon and lime. First sip is mostly the bready yeast as well as coriander and cloves. Some grassy hops later on as well as lime zest and honey. More of the Belgian yeast at the finish with some pepper and funk. Medium body with a well hidden ABV. Not the typical beer you'd expect from The Alchemist, and for that reason alone it's worth a least a try.

Best saison I’ve ever had. Excellent all around, and I wish I could have bought more. Crisp and clean.

L -- Pours a clear straw colored body with a dense, three-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Definitely less retention than traditional saisons, but still pretty decent. Good lacing as well
S -- Pilsner malts, sundried tomato, floral notes, doughy yeast, lemon, a touch of citrus, honey, and rosemary
T -- Quite sweet honey-like malt profile. Also getting yeast, garden-herb hoppiness, and a touch of lemon
F -- The sweetness makes the character a little cloying. Fluffy, medium carb, medium mouthfeel
O -- The sweetness could definitely be turned down a notch, but otherwise a pretty interesting take on a saison. It's The Alchemist, so of course there's some hop character, yet it doesn't overwhelm

Pours a murky yellow with fine foam and some floaties.

Smell is very Belgian, with lots of yeasty apple, some cloves and a bit of grass.

Taste is yeasty with a bit of funk and grass. A substantial bitterness finishes with some booze.

Mouthfeel is medium and sparkly.

Overall, a very American take on a saison, with it's high bitterness. Very tasty.
