Cloudy, tan. Bubblegum forward, with slightly biscuity malt, touch of acidity late. Maybe too much residual sweetness for me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle/can from Belmont Station. Pours orange/amber with a slight white head. Aroma is dusty/earthy/spicy. Med body. Flavor is dusty/earthy/spicy and arguably some floral/fruit hop. The earthy approaches barnyard. Doesn’t get there. The flavors are quite strong. It finishes near barnyard and spicy. I vote for Belgian yeast (tho I’m not sure about fruit esters, there is a banana note. I think.) Finishes saison/farmhouse. Firmly so. Tasty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin), with notes of bubble gum, grains of paradise, perfume, plastic, corn syrup.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Simply terrible...sugar syrup, goopy, perfumey and artificial smelling, just an absolute mess. Repulsive even. Can’t believe they call this a saison. Oh wait, yes I can.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting stuff here. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a medium white head. A nice yeasty, fruity and floral nose. The flavor is mildly tart or green, mostly a bready sweet yeast base, some toffee, a bit of floral hops, rose petals. Quite mellow and nice. Good beer. What a description: reads like a travel guide!
