750 ml bottle from Julios. A light straw colored brew. Nice white head. Good carbonation. Citrus-yeast-spice aromas. Flavor is very smooth. Light and fruity with a great yeast character. Notes of lemon, pear and a little pepper. Very refreshing on this hot muggy summer day. This is like a good Belgian Wit, but a lot more interesting. Mystic really hit the mark with this one! Finishes clean with lingering light honey-spice flavors.

In appearances is quite light in yellow color, compounded by a fizzy champagne-like pour. Some citrus on the nose, and maybe apple. Surprisingly full-bodied saison taste and mouthfeel, though, betraying its light appearance. Lemony and peppery saison notes in abundance, with maybe just a hint of apple. Lightness in appearance and fullness in taste combine in peppery lingering notes that are quite short lived. A relatively crisp and delightful saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy golden lemon color with a huge fluffy white head that persists forever and leaves lots of lace on the way down. Smells of lemon and pepper with a spicy edge. Belgian yeasty phenols and a hint of earthy spicy hops. Sweet and malty flavor with hints of bread caramel and lemon. The flavor has hints of yeasty and spicy but not as much as the nose lead me to believe. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sweet crisp mouthfeel. That’s a nice saison right there. Its sweet with a bit of tart and a bit of spice but it all works together really well. This has been my favorite so far from the Mystic Saison Brewery.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Multiple samples at GABF 2013, like probably 15-20 ounces. All Pils malt and all Saaz hops on the spec sheet is what intrigued me. I didn’t realize I was in for a beautifully classic rendition of DuPont... floral, lemony, minty even, somewhat tart, mild to moderately phenolic. Pilsner malt gives it a fresh baked bread quality while the juicy, herbal, spicy hops provide a salivating, quenching acidity. Strikingly hop-driven saison with a minty, green, sharp Saaz character but all of softness and rusticity of DuPont.

Batch 6 Pours cloudy light yellow with a solid sheet of bone white bubs. Smells of grain, clay yeast, some floral notes and a good hay/squash/butter combo. Flavor is all about this awesome yeast: bread, lemon rind, grass, cornmeal, really nice flavor that is simple, but carries some nuances I just can’t articulate. Medium bodied with moderately hi carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer. I really dig it.

Pours a pale yellow with a good head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is earthy with a good wet limestone character. It’s got a nice bit of hoppiness to it as well.

The beer is nicely bitter, very dry & earthy but not without a touch of fruitiness. The hop level is nice and provides a herbal character that’s well balanced with what’s going on malt & fermentation wise.

Dig it lots.

Pours a pale hazy urine yellow with a rocky white lacing. Barnyard, bread, earth and horse blanket notes. What a prime example of staying true to style. Aside from from the abv this is a what a saison is to me.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold with a wispy, white froth head. Very clean, fresh aroma, some grass, dry dough, a bit of lemon. Light to medium sweet flavor with a very slightly sugary doughy malt character, some bright straw, ripe lemon, faint sweat. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Great body and mouthfeel. Clean finish with very mellow warmth, pale and doughy malts, touches of yeast and grass, low bitterness. Great balance overall. Super drinkable. For a saison this is just what I want.

Bottle. This pours a yellow-gold color with a fluffy white head on top. The aroma is very nice: straw, grass, lemon, funky hay. The flavor doesn’t disappoint either. It’s refreshing, delicate, and tasty. There’s sweet floral notes, straw, light herb, melon, pils malt, with a dry hoppy finish that’s all wrapped up in a light package with high drinkability and zippy, active, carbonation. Yum. I like how the brewer doesn’t try to do too much with this and stays mostly true to the style. Great beer for the hot summer months.
