Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Light body with a bit of grain. Heavy pepper and phenols in the nose. A bit of booze comes through in the flavor. Crisp and dry.

This poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of yeast, light spices, and grassy hops, Flavor was a bit off and plasticy, spicey, and some herbal hop notes. Ok.

At GTMW. Decent saison with a good hop punch but a really weak finish. Not impressed.

22 oz. bomber served in a FW tulip.
A: Pours a clear golden color with light amber hues. A frothy white head forms on the pour and recedes slowly to a thin cap. Thick sheets of lace are left down the glass.
S: Musty yeast, some slight peppery notes with some peach fuzz fruitiness. There are some bready malts as well.
T: Definite yeasty must up front with an odd peach sweetness to it. Tastes like some concentrated syrup that goes into a snow cone. It definitely doesn’t give off pleasant flavors as it completely wipes out the yeast and would be even more sweet if it wasn’t for the cracker malts that slightly cut it.
M: Medium bodied with a slight sticky quality to it. Medium carbonation with a drying finish.
O: The syrupy sweetness in the taste was definitely off-putting and it completely dominated the other flavor components. Not that balanced. Nice on the nose. but not taste.
Serving type: bottle

Has huge over powering banana/clove with spice scents. Taste is rather fruity and spicy, rather dry finish, not a fan.

Citrusy, fruity and peppery aroma and taste. I would have preferred this one a little more drier than it was. It became a little overwelming instead of refreashing like a saison should be.

Beautiful hazy golden color, white head. Funky smell almost like a sour. Definite notes of cardamom up front with a very dry finish. Lively mouth feel, apart seems like it needs a hit of lemon to finish the taste.
