Small head but it does leave an initial ring of lace then some spots afterwards. Cloudy amber color.

Sour with a combination of rinds from lemons and oranges.

Very tart like unsweetened lemonade. Almost like a lambic. The carbonation is low but I wouldn't describe the body as rich. This is a one-trick pony of a beer--there's little else to describe.

The colour is gold (10 EBC), the liquid got some passing chill haze. The finger thick head is off-white, it sinks slowly leaving no lacing.

The smell is sweet with lots of strawberry jam and other red berries. Hints of cinnamon and some clean bitter flavours.

The taste is bitter-sweet with some tart notes in the background. Lots of strawberry jam and red fruit syrup. Some phenolic yeast notes. Medium body. The aftertaste is a bit tart with clean strawberry flavours. Hints of salt and lots of fruits in the finish.

The carbonation is strong, the big bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

Too much fruits for my taste.

Served on-tap at Barcade in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a hazy pale yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy white head that reduces to a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of pale malts with some light to moderate aromas of peppery yeast and light hints of lemon.

T: The taste of this beer is primarily of malts but not just pale malts, perhaps pale malts with some hint of adjuncts. The peppery yeast that is present in the aroma is lacking in the taste. Minimal amounts of bitterness are present but fade quickly.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I was a little surprised by the lack of dryness in this saison as it seemed a little atypical of the style. I was also disappointed that the spicy yeasts did not come through in the flavors and it lacked the refreshing qualities I expect from a saison.
