Typical Daydream by On Tour Brewing Co. was reviewed from a goblet after a pour from a 32 ounce can and subsequently evaluated per style guidelines defined by the Beer Judge Certification Program as a Saison category # 25B.

A golden tinted hazy ale that supported a sizable white head that rose up then fell of quickly.

The bouquet reflected a complexity of aromas that featured a spicy yeast character accompanied by fruity notes and just a trace of hop aromatics.

As is often the case the above described aroma was a veracious prognosticator of the flavor profile. Yeast phenols, spices, fruity esters and the firm presence of Pilsner malt married nicely to emulate the style.

The body was medium to thin which is not unusual in that Saisons are often highly attenuated and express a dry finish. Alcohol was in the medium range and carbonation was well stated.

A well-conceived beer that nicely exemplifies the Saison style.
