The taste is bitter, doughy, pepper, spicy, straw, toasted grain, mild sweetness and cereal with a dry finish. Medium body and soft, massaging carbonation. Well rounded and rather drinkable. Nice stuff.

Tap...just an OK saison with some pear flavor and a bit of spice, however this had a very thin body and left a fairly bad after taste. Would not have another one of these.
