On draft. It pours a light yellow with a white head. The aroma is very floral with menthol, lemon pepper, clove, a little banana and gum. The flavor is the same. Lots of menthol. Nice one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear straw with big quickly disappearing head. A Strongly spiced nose. Light sticky body. Tons of spice. Way too much spice (cardamom?)
Off-balance in a bad way.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Courtesy of Brendan, shared with Andrew and streets. Pours a cloudy yellow body with creamy white head that settles nicely into thick lacing. Aroma is lots of banana, spice, grass, and faint urine. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of banana and clove dominating; additional flavors of spice, grass, light hop, and a vague floralness.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
can. hazy gold with a large fluffy white head. bright herbal citrus nose. the flavor is highly spiced and minty, like wintergreen, with vanilla sweetness. light body. don’t like the minty. i love most of 21A beers but i’m still haunted by their "spring saison" or "saison" or whatever the hell it was from last summer, when i forced an entire 64oz growler of lavender infused soap down my gullet because i just can’t bring myself to pour out a beer(i now know that it is the dreaded cardamom spice). this is just too uncomfortably close to that concoction. in fact, i think it is the same stuff. got me twice now.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale yellow with short-lived head fading to an outer ring and minimal lacing. Aroma is funky pale malt with some spices and sour fruits. Taste is spicy and bready up front, then into a funky yeast and malt character with some cardamom. Overall this is pretty bold and for being so earthy and yeasty it vanished pretty quickly.
