3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at pro pig, waterbury. hazy bright gold pour with a very nice creamy white head offering good retention and strong lacing. honeyed and spicy pale maltiness, peppery wheat, sweet crackers, very fruity - berries upfront, peppercorns, spices and other bitter herbs, citrus and ginger - zest, hint of honey sweetness and candi, phenolic traces and other belgiany angles. average carbonation, light body -oily and fairly creamy - perhaps less creamier and more carb would enhance drinkability, although it finishes relatiovely dry and grassy-spicy-citrusy. interesting offering.

dark orange slight hazy with a 1 finger sticky head. Smells like orange peel, lemon and some rye. Decent mouthfeel. sweet throughout, sort of a summer shandy orange peel and a touch of honey. it’s pretty good but wouldn’t buy again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured hazy, amber/copper golden with an easy forming head. Awesome grassy, earthy, resinous hopped nose along with yeast spices. Tasted great. A nice yeasty saison with an added hop character to kick things up a notch. I love Sorachi Ace hops and they work so well with this style. Soft mouthfeel was a nice start for the grassy earthy tones of the hops. Could drink this stuff all day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at Three Penny. $8 for the full serving. To tulip, Pours a hazy yellowish-orange with which a white-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of melon rind, candied citrus, noble hops, cotton, wheat grain, chrysanthemum, and copper. Tastes the same with the addition of krill oil, Bible paper, pink peppercorn, lemon seeds, and farmhouse yeast by swallow. Probably my favorite Mystic beer, but by all means not a masterpiece. Would have again, but wouldn’t be overexcited to do so.
