Smells like potpourri. Floral nose with a touch of fruit. Slightly medicinal. Very floral and dry. No fruit flavor. Very heavy potpourri

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a "worthy glass" brandy snifter type from on tap at worthy burger. Poured with an eighth inch head that quickly disappeared. Typical saison aroma with cranberry and ammonia present as well. Golden yellow cloudy. Cranberry is subdued and refreshing. Sweet but not overly so. Hops are inerceptable. Mouthfeel like flatter sprite. Overall a refreshing summer beer but not quite easy enough to be a sesssion beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Sunset Grill and tap. Light pale gold color, thin cap of white head. Nose is grains, dough and citrus. Flavors reminiscent of crackers, musty yeast with lots of citrus in the finish. No problems with this brew but it feels like itís missing something. Kind of bland.

750ml bottle at DC tasting. Hazy golden-tan. Creamy thin off-white head. Not a pronounced cranberry, more of a mild citrus balance..creates depth. Some white wine notes. Pretty nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is a slightly hazy medium golden color with the faintest of a pink tinge to it and a huge fluffy white head that slowly recedes to a cap on top. The aroma is sweet lightly bready malt beneath a whole lot of yeast funk, a tart fruitiness, and a hint of phenol. The flavor is quite a bit nicer than the aroma. A sweet sugary maltiness up front melds into a tart fruitiness, cranberries obviously come to mind. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart bubbly mouthfeel. This is probably my least favorite beer from the Mystic Saison brewery. Itís a bit too heavy with yeast and phenols for my tastes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to mottle surface. Dusty yeast and cookie aromas. Soft with sweet cookie and earthy yeast upfront turning to mild cranberry tartness in the medium length finish.

Bottle from Julios. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. Pours out a hazy slightly reddish light orange color. Slightly tart aromas and flavors. Some citrus, some yeast. Not overly exciting, but not terrible either.

750mL provided by Jslot38. Thanks! Poured a cloudy hazy, yellow-orange color with a small white head. Some notes of cranberry, mild sweet-sour notes. Flavor had a touch of barnyard, with plenty of berry characters in here. Some tartness.
