2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
More of a mild saison than anything as the aroma, taste, and appearance were below what is to be expected of this style. The head was very small and while there was a dryness to this it also was more on the sweet side leaving me underwhelmed.
