COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mary of the Gael Saison-Style Farmhouse Ale. Spring Saison. St. Brigid’s Day (AKA Mary of the Gael) is celebrated in Ireland at the time of the Imbolic, a once pagan celebration of "Summer in the belly of winter." This release in our series of seasonal saisons is a refreshingly hoppy take on saison for springtime. Mary of the Gael has a simple base of pilsener malt, a touch of honey malt and is dry-hopped with a copious amount of floral hops.

vyvvy (3949) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours brownish orange with a small wispy beige head. The aroma has nectar fruit, peppery spice, earthy husky saison yeastiness, herbs, leaves and light must. It has a medium / light crisp body with a boatload of sharp micro carbonation. The flavor starts with earthy funk, dried fruit, lots of pepper and barnyard. The finish dries out and had dried herbal and leafy characteristics. Good saison.

Nice beer. Aroma is very floral and spicy. Reminds me of holiday spices. Taste is pretty sweet with a bit of a rustic floral finish. Good stuff.

mcox90 (1535) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2014
On tap at Pro Pig, half pour. Pours cloudy gold with a rocky white head. Aroma is floral hops, spice and honey. Flavor has a sweetness about it, from the honey malt, no doubt, which blends nicely with the slight farmhouse funk the beer has. A bit grainy. Light bodied and crisp.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 On draft at propig, tons of spices and dryness. It’s decent I like it. A little thick. The Mystic saisons all are ust about hte same, malty thick body, light fruit esters, semi dry finish. Some wheat tones, plain.
