At a tasting, many thanks Ariel, small stable bubbly head, very hazy lemon yellow colour with some orange taints, aroma of lemon, overipe citrus, vinegar, light funky notes and some floweriness. flavour of overipe citrus, mineral notes and candy with a pleasant herbal bitterness, the sorachi ace is quite noticable and blends in nicely. Very good saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is a light golden orange with a white, foamy head. Lots of lacing, good retention. The liquid is fairly cloudy. Solid saison looks. Sweet, bright grain flavor. Classic saison farmhousey character. Light, freshly fruity hops. Sweet lemons, grapes, grass, lemongrass, candied tangerine. A little bit of peppery spice. Yeasty earthiness. More of that bright, sweet grain in the taste. Light citric bitterness. Very refreshing and easy to get through. Fairly dry. Soft mouthfeel. Fairly normal carbonation but light and creamy. Tasty stuff.

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.

3.5 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.
