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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Terrific retention. Spicy, breadsy nose with banana, pale and fuzzy fruit esters, coriander phenol and dough. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, then gently bitter, slightly pungent and spicy on the backside. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes a touch tangy then fairly dry. Without the cage, my bottle would’ve opened itself. Feisty!

Tap at CK thanks to craftycarl21! Good foam. Sweet pear nose. Estery, bright, mild diaper phenols. Taste is juicy, clean pear. Nice dough and honey bread. Very good. Sweeter saison, could use more hop balance. Still, pretty nice.
