3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Beige, slightly hazy. Slightly funky, with some pedio. Fairly full body, spicy, with a nice firm alcohol finish with herbal hops. This cuts through just a hint of sweetness at the fore, which comes in a little plasticy. Some spritziness moves the body forward. Decent little saison.

The smell is a bit barnyard, with lots of malt behind it. The taste, from a medium plus mouthfeel,is hoppy and mildly spicey, and is a bit astringent in the finish.Drinkable though not best of style.Orange with off-white head.
