My Bottom Line:
Pears and herbs share the spotlight in this fruity and very effervescent quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the hazy blond.
-An acidic touch helps the finish.
-Cereals show up clearly in the end as well.
-Why does such a refreshing flavor profile need 7.5% abv? I’d love to have 4-5% version...
-Green tea allusions seem to be a creation of the hop profile.

Un autre superbe liquide comme d’habitude avec Night Shift. Hyper aromatique, verdure mouillée de chlorophylle, finale de thé sec. Jamais durant la dégustation j’ai perçu le melon miel.

I really like this beer. Nice melon, apple, banana, and floral nose. Taste is heavy juicy honeydew with some light citrus. Quite hoppy and lightly bitter on the finish.

Bottle at Bruce’s new pad, big thanks to Leighton, 15/10/13.
Hazed golden amber with thin off white pond affair atop the glass.
Nose is a little soapy, bitter orange, apricot, touch of honey, sugars.
Taste comprises light honeycomb, grass, bitter fruits, yeasty tones, tangy apricot.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy finale.
Decent saison, a little drop in quality on the previous couple, the soap on the nose didn’t interfere with the flavour for me.

Tasting at Bruce’s new pad. Thanks to Leighton for this rarity. Hazy amber beer with a tidy pale cream coloured head. Light airy palate. Thin and dry creamy malt. Light brett bitterness. Whisper of something fruity. Finishes semi dry with a mild brett bitterness. Okay if a bit lightweight.

Bottle during football at my dad’s. Pours a hazed amber with a large white head. Bright musky citrus, dusty hops, lemon. Medium bodied, soft musk with a touch of melon sweetness. Soft musk with some chewy yeast and some faint honeydew bits coming through after. Pretty nice.

Bottle, big thanks to Leighton for my first Night Shift! It pours hazy amber with a thick, fluffy yellow-white head. The nose is woody, orange, Irn Bru, peach, mustinesst, spice, earth, vanilla and melon. The taste is earth, wood, green apple, melon, brett, spice, citrus, dough and dirt with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting and rather tasty. Works well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle cheers to Leighton. Cloudy orange-amber pour with a sticky beige head. Nose is quite grassy and full of stone fruits. A lot more hop forward than I was expecting. Slightly resinous with toffee biscuit and creme caramel. Mouth feel is sticky sweet and quite resinous. Heavy caramel and piney hops with an odd nuttiness - like peanutes. Alcohol is just there in a pleasing warmth. Solid stuff

Bottle shared at Bruce’s. This one I got at Julio’s in MA. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy, off-white head. Nose has some bready malts, ripe fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with bread, hints of tangy fruits, melon, faint rindy citrus bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, some ripe melon, hints of maple syrup, bread. Tasty and fairly interesting.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle Purchased @ Julio’s for $11.99 before Wild 6. Cloudy amber / orange like color with lasting soapy head. The saison yeast is a big player in this beer. Aroma is just yeast. Flavor is leafy floral hops, grass, honey and spicy finish from the yeast. The melon is only a light accent after the brew is warm. Very light melon hints in the last half of the snifter. Nice biscuity pilsner like malts to help balance the yeast. Very dry texture. Very nice.
