16 oz can was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy orange color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Strawberry, vanilla, green apple, biscuity, and pale malts.

Taste: Light strawberry sweetness, toasted, pale, biscuity, vanilla, green apple, and possibly rhubarb bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, fruity, a little dry, slightly chewy, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: A nice saison with complimentary strawberry and rhubarb flavor. Perfect for the summer.

From the 16 oz. can. Sampled on September 25, 2015.

Light amber colored pour with a modest, short-lasting head and a slight cloudy appearance.

I get those Belgian toasted malt characters minus the spice along with a more vibrant fruity note and especially strawberries.

Medium body.

Big fruitiness to talk about in the taste too. Some of the characteristics are there but it was missing something.

On tap at the brewery.

Think this was a new recipe. It was only 4.5% ABV and brewed with a ton of Strawberries and Rhubarb.

Pours spritely, but cloudy for the style. Smells tart and fruity with mild spice complexities. Tastes very sweet, mildly tart, yet still a discernible saison. Starts out like sweet strawberry rhubarb pie, getting more yeasty near the middle, ending on dry nodes of white pepper and coriander. Wonderfully complex, but never as tart or funky as what some might expect out of a contemporary sour saison.

My beer can was labeled 4.5%, not 6.5%. I think, based on the other ratings and my own, that this was a positive recipe change as the recent ratings are much higher than the older ones.

I originally rated this beer a 3.75 in Sept of 2013. It just came out again and I bought a 4 pack on May 13th 2015. This version of the beer has an ABV of 4.5 (the original is listed at 6.5). So I assume the recipe has been modified.

I love this beer. Subtle hint of strawberry and rhubarb with a very dry finish that makes me want to take another sip immediately. It's refreshing with a little sweetness and just a touch of funk on the finish. I can see myself drinking a lot of these over the summer, if I can continue to find it. Kudos to Cape Ann for making this a really good beer, or to me for my improved palate :-).

Beautifully made beer. Tart taste of noticeable rhubarb and strawberry finish. Dry finish that requires another taste. A well made saison that embraces it's farmhouse origin as the fruits are well blended in.
