Saisons are still one of the oddest beers Iíve had, they are all very different. The one thing you definitely notice is that there is a funky, off-taste like a very weird and over-ripe fruit mixed in among the typical beer tastes, but it actually goes together pretty well. I bought this one due to my love of monkeys and monkey kings, but I would get it again based on merit.

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle. Nose heavy lemon/orange peel and heavy black pepper, spices like mace and tea, some vanilla/meringue, wheat and marmalade. Pours very hazy, very pale yellow thatís got a lot of white mixed in, supports a large and rocky bright white head, thick lace. Taste dry and heavily wheaten, very spicy and lightly tart, some flits of lemon and seemingly coriander, lightly herbal. Soft full body but not at all heavy, refreshing with a grainy aftertaste, key thing is that super (raw) wheat character, if a little murky. [2016.04.10: 3.4]

The hoppy aroma to this beer is very pleasant. The mixture of sweetness and bitterness is nice paired with the citrus.

TAR (2650) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Burnished golden. White head subsides quickly. Very dirty nose of DMS, white vinegar, gummy candy, apple juice, husky malt, unripe banana, chemicals. Flimsy mouthfeel. DMS and husky, grating malt assaults the palate immediately. Intensely vegetal with rampant cabbage notes coupled with plastic baggie, bile and gummy candy. Apple juice plagues the wet and limp finish, which reveals hints of herbal, peppery hops and an abundance of sulfur. I didnít need more than one sniff and a tiny, gag-inducing mouthful to confirm the lackluster quality of this. Heartbreakingly, this bills itself as a saison, because in reality, it comes off as more of an industrial lager fermented with a cheap saison strain than anything else. Reprehensible and undrinkable.

Cloudy golden appearance with a small white head and little lacing. Spicy, yeasty aroma dotted with biscuits and crackers. Flavors of soft fruit, spices and hornbill dust. Crisp, dry aftertaste. Grainy, medium bodied mouthfeel with an average length finish.

Aroma is permanent marker, banana, clove. Appearance is gold, white head. Taste is funk, banana, clove, not good. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is crisp. Overall, not a fan of the style at all.
