Sampled at the Funky 8 - Barcade, Brooklyn, NYC. Quite simply, this beer is just way too sweet. Lots of yeasty bread, some grains, spices, mild pale fruits. Quite full in body. Meh.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(750ml bottle, #106/180, courtesy of ericandersnavy) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of grass, pineapple, herbs, artificial sweetener, burnt honey, mango. Flavor of herbs, honey, grass, alcohol, stone fruit, mango, very sugary, and earth with a cloying finish. Certainly not what I would consider a saison and unfortunately a sugary alcohol disappointment that met my drain.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Murky brown with a beautiful whipped white head; garlands of lace. Nose is lemon zest, vanilla pudding and duck sauce; faintly sour and musty. Body is thick and doughy, tiny carb pricks then oily and clinging. Taste is honey, spoiled pineapple, cardamon and tomatillo with a dry yeasty finish. Strange flavors but interesting enough to be enjoyable.
