OldMrCrow (2384) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2016
750 ml bottle from Bottleworks.

Unsurprisingly, yellow pour with a white head. Soft spices and a bit of mandarin citrus on the aroma. The flavor is not tart, but relatively dry with substantial tripel inflections. Quite tasty and easy to drink. Fine but abundant carbonation. Rustic isn’t the word that comes mind here at all; it’s not a dusty wild field-saison; the drama comes more from the hops than usually though it’s not a hoppy beer. But the whole thing works. Tasty and rewarding to the palate for the full 750. And holy crap -- is there really good beer coming out of Boston now?

superspak (4575) - Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in Summer 2014. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon peel, orange zest, grapefruit, pear, pineapple, apricot, white grape, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon peel, orange zest, grapefruit, pear, pineapple, apricot, white grape, peppercorn, wheat, crack, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange peel, grapefruit, pear, pineapple, apricot, grape, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from carbonation and yeast spiciness. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
