16oz can into a side project stemmed bulb glass. pours a hazy orange with a large amount of soapy bright white head. it’s 50/50 beer to foam upon initial pour. smells of grass and lemon. slightly musty. taste is similar. lemony tartness and grassy funk. feel is decent. has a dry finish. not as carbonated as i expected it to be. overall, this is a perfect fit for the pint can. light and drinkable. tasty. perhaps a few months premature as this would make a great summer crusher.

750ml bottle. 2/2017 bottle date. Appearance: Light golden, crystal clear, with a frothy white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: Some citrusy grapefruit hopping with a distinct grassy, hay, straw aroma Taste: Light crackery maltiness, a touch of peppery spice, a sweet orange citrus, and a bit of grassiness and a light pear yeast eater. Bitterness is moderate. Mouthfeel: Light bodies with a moderate carbonation. Finish: Dry, with some bready maltiness. Not much there, but do pick up some pear waters retronasally Overall: Pretty standard saison. Dry hopping adds some citrus to the aroma, with a straightforward maltiness and saison yeast character that adds some pepper and pear esters

Pours a clear straw with two fingers of snow white head. Head retention is fair with a few strands of lacing left behind. Aroma is soda pop fizz, lemon-lime, orange zest, and wheat. It has a bright, popping aroma. Flavor profile is more mellow, hitting notes of lemon and orange zest, wheat, yeast spice, and bread malts. It carries a bright, simple, but flavorful taste. Mouth feel is medium-thin with an effervescent carbonation feel. Overall, a hoppy table beer that provides a good dose of flavor, but in a low alcohol setting.

A - Golden yellow body, clear, with white head, persistent, with small bubbled lacing.

S - Lemon and sour grain, apple flesh, straight forward fruit, grass hints, herbal highlights.

T - Tart, with lemon and green apple flesh, a bit of limestone. Slightly bitter close, and a bit of sourness.

M - Slightly sticky, strong carbonation, and just a ghost on the tongue after the close.

O - Not particularly complex, but well designed and exceptionally deep for the ABV. Lovely.

Nice but rather boring. Extremely similar in flavor to Boulevard Tank 7. I get none of the dry hop i was expecting. Overall this is a fine beer but wouldnt go out of my way for it

Thanks for the share, Kevin!

This one pours a light and clear golden yellow, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like pilsner malt, grassy hops, light yeast phenols. I definitely get some noble hopping on the nose- maybe Saaz?

This is a pretty light and classically styled saison here. There's a very light funk- it's a subtle strain of Brett for sure, with yeast phenols, cloves, and grassy hops. It's a fairly hoppy saison, which is nice.

This is light bodied, crisp and very clean, with a good level of carbonation.

This is a nice new direction for Side Project- I'm digging it.

prettiest label i have seen on one of these shared beers, its a session saison, quite obviously hoppy, but also rather delicate. i liked this one a lot, and can see a lot of potential for cleaner saisons from these guys moving forward, this is well ahead of the curve. its crystal clear and heady from the bottle, absolutely sparkling until the bottom inch or so, where a soft hay film enters the glass. i actually prefer the beer with the sediment in it, and it seems almost like a hoppy pils type until it came on the scene. there is a very pale and european type malt base to this, pils if you ask me, but its tough saying for sure with the nice grassy fresh hop element, really tasty for sure, but not particularly interesting on the yeast front until later on. the sediment brings that, short off funky but way less clean and tidy, notes of white wine and straw from it are nice with the hops and the cerealy pale malt, while it dries the beer out brilliantly, and rushing carbonation makes it finish almost invisibly, really easy drinking stuff, fully flavorful, and still so delicate. the hop profile is tremendous too, with a limey almost saaz tasting kick at the end, and some dry spice. simple but delicious, quite rustic without being funky, excellent overall.

Pours light golden in color with a nice white head that lingers forever. Nice carbonation streaming up the glass.

Aroma of green hop, light citrus and a touch of pepper. More fruitiness as it warms up.

Flavor follows with a fantastic bitterness that makes the beer drink crisp almost like a Pilsner. Very dry finish and just a faint bit of hop bitterness lingers.

This is a fantastic beer and one I'd love to have around often.

Bottled on date of 02/2017.

poured into a Side Project Wine Stem.

Appearance: Golden yellow body with large billowing bone white head. Good head retention. Thick lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Banana's, bubblegum, and fruity esters. Hint of tartness.

Taste: Lots of banana's and fruity yeast. Bubble gum and lightly hopped. Hop profile is floral, earthy, and grassy; basically a traditional rustic hop profile. Hint of tartness and hint of Side Project signature funk.

Mouthfeel: light body with moderate carbonation. Very easy and drinkable. Extremely light dryness in the finish. Very drinkable.

Overall: This beer is basically a combination of a Belgian pale ale, a Hefeweizen, and a petite saison all rolled up into one beer. Long live classic Belgian beer styles and its even more awesome when an American brewer can tie multiple beer styles together and the beer still comes across as authentic per the beer style.

750ml bottle, served in a SP stemmed glass. Pours a clear golden body with a half finger white head, short retention with a fair bit of lacing. Smell is hoppy floral and grassy notes, slight biscuit, minimal vinegar tartness, light farmhouse funk. Flavour is mild biscuit, floral and grass, mild farmhouse cobweb. Mild sulfur. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, smooth with appropriate carbonation, mild-moderate bitterness. This is a beer that would go well with spicy food.

750 ml bottle poured into Ourison glass

A- A slightly cloudy golden straw with a three finger white head.

S- Wheat, pears, some bananas, some citrus, mild funk and hints of peppercorns.

T- Slightly tart, citrus, wheat, hints of sweet bread, finish is earthy and slightly funky.

M- Smooth, crisp, light body.

O- A tasty, easy drinking Saison/Belgian Pale. Reminds me a little more of standard table beer than a Saison, worth picking up.
