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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... 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.
