3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one feels very Belgian to me. Pours slightly hazy golden. Initially a huge frothy head but that comes down to a still decent layer of foam. Aroma is full of spicy yeast, together with candy sugar sweetness. Candy sugar is coming out also in the taste. Body is quite heavy and thick, taste caramelly, sugary and yeasty. If you come over of this initial heavy feel it has, some fruits come out as well, peach and mango maybe but a bit too much powerful yeast spices and sugary heaviness are not letting me to enjoy that fully. Still not bad but I was hoping for a more funky beer (Funkwerks - funky??? Too much to ask?).

Pours amber with a nice big head that lasts. I assume the color is bc of strength. Strong peppery aroma. Delicious. A bit thick bodied for a saison. Has a bit of sweetness, thanks to its size.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Bright golden color, hazy. The aroma is a bit too much vegetable, but also lightly fruity. Good body, sweet, spicy, a bit woody. Good, but a bit too American, which is a flaw.

Draft - Tinted gold, nice sudsy, bright white head. Spotty lace. Aroma of yeast, coriander, cardboard, some bubblegum. Pretty sweet, too much bubblegum, some spice, notes of nondescript fruits. Meh.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clearish gold with 2 fingers of foam that dissipate fairly quickly. Big bubblegum, candy sugar, pina colada nose with some light apple as it warms. No funk to be found. More of a weizen bock / generic saison hybrid. Feels heavy, overly boozy and waaaayyyyy to sweet for a saison. Typical saison swill from the states and I’m American.
