Smells pretty metallic. Thankfully doesn’t taste as bad. Biscuit, barnyard, dried leaves. Drink it cold. This doesn’t warm up into anything spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. First I’ve tried in the "Trip" series. Slightly cloudy orange-brown color with minimal head and carbonation. Pleasant aroma of orange rind, apricot, pear, clove and raisin bread. A good dose of resiny sap from the aroma hops. Flavor is bitter fruit rind, grains of paradise, more clove and pear, with a nice biscuit yeast note on the finish. Dry and bitter finish. Very refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a burnt hazy orange with a one finger white head with very nice lacing. Aroma is of rye bread, earthy citrus, belgian yeast, ripe banana, and some cloves. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some sweet candied malts and burnt caramel notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, slightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty and interesting saison that makes nice use of rye malts.

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is rye bread, spicy, some hops. The taste is yeasty, you do really detect the rye, mellow not overbearing hops. Thin to medium body and carbonation is medium but soft. Decent beer.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight hazy light orangey brew some white soapy head. Smells as much of malt syrup as banana yeast; I’m bracing myself for some bock-like tooth rotting sweetness. There’s an earthy mute to the sweetness and yeast flavors help moderate it. The spicy rye flavor is very slight. The sweetness if still a bit much though a burst of bitter at the end helps. Sorta tasty but I wouldn’t get it again. Too sweet and seems more like a belgian ale than a saison because of how little funk, fruit, and acid it has.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a hazy dark golden color with an average fizzy frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate rye, earthy citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a slick smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend.
