Light citrus wheat aromas. Hazy orange tan body with nice lasting head. Smooth hop grows in too citrus flavors then finishes with a light dry grainy hop. Very smooth delicious, refreshing. JStax (7132) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Draft sample at the source. The beer is a cleqr yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has cofonut and lime. Tastes like key lime pie. Dry in the finish. Moderately sweet. Light body and medium to high carbonation. This is a standout beer. j12601 (13034) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle that I took to Max’s tasting. Pours a hazed amber with a medium to large white head. Big musk with a bit of spicy citrus and lemon. Medium-bodied, spicy musk, nice malt note, chewy musk, and wheat. Another beautiful saison from Mystic. superspak (5894) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in Summer 2014. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon peel, orange zest, grapefruit, pear, pineapple, apricot, white grape, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon peel, orange zest, grapefruit, pear, pineapple, apricot, white grape, peppercorn, wheat, crack, hay, straw, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange peel, grapefruit, pear, pineapple, apricot, grape, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from carbonation and yeast spiciness. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

grassy hops and slightly grainy malt aroma. pale yellow color, minimal head. light, refreshing saison. a touch of a citrus hop note. very easy drinking. doesn’t seem as strong as 6%. quite nice. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured hazy, amber/copper golden with an easy forming head. Awesome grassy, earthy, resinous hopped nose along with yeast spices. Tasted great. A nice yeasty saison with an added hop character to kick things up a notch. I love Sorachi Ace hops and they work so well with this style. Soft mouthfeel was a nice start for the grassy earthy tones of the hops. Could drink this stuff all day. jredmond (8518) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Jay at Max’s. Pours a light body with thin white lacing. Aroma is lightly funky lemon, spice, light grain and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium and nicely balanced with notes of lemon funk, citrus fruits, light grain, flowers and spicy yeast. Nice saison. tomer (3711) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2014
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.
