draft at the Churchill. Pours brown with a white head. A bit of funk on the nose. A bit of hoppiness on the tongue but missing much of the funkiness and barnyard you expect with the style. finishes clean. Eh!

bottle: pours clearish copper amber, with a thick creamy off-white head, leaving good lacing on glass................malty, a little yeasty, slightly spicy, maybe a little banana in the aroma .......medium body with an even smooth bitterness and a lingering spiciness, light to medium carbonation..........a great example of the difficult to define saison category

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with a short, short-lived off-white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: Belgian yeast, citrus, light banana, mild green apple. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild black pepper, very mild tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lightly funky dry finish. (3/5)
Admittedly I went into this with high hopes, but it didn’t quite deliver. At least, not to the same extent that their IPA’s do. Pleasantly mild black pepper spiciness dovetails nicely with mildly tart and funky fruit. Good, but not great. (14/20)
