355ml can @ home. Ordered from Ales By Mail. Low foam, no carbin acids, ruined? Not saison at all, no fresh, no beer feelgood.

Light in body with average carbonation. Moderate sweetness at the exit, with a bit of sugary wheat, straw. Simple enough but tasty and drinkable.

EithCubes (5242) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Canned (in 2013!). Nose is lemon and lemongrass, very clean and crisp citrus with floral undertones, and that Nelson, though faded, is still sublime. Pale yellow with strong carbonation and a noisy, fizzy, soapy bright white head. Tart and lightly acidic taste, low bitterness with faint rubber astringency in the finish, sweet but not to excess, coats with a chalky feel. Semi-soft medium body with touch of sour wheat, lightly herbal and very refreshing.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Well, Maui really knows how to make a summer refresher with local ingedients. And Lost Abbey, for all their issues, does farmhouse/saision pretty well, so this is a good fit. Light and refreshing yet complex aroma. Wheaty, a little light fruit, lemongrass, very subtle belgian spice. The flavor is really nice. Spot on. Finishes dry. Another I’ll get again."
