3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. Pours a murky straw color and no head. Aromas of straw, funk, and bitter fruits. Flavor follows the nose and is honestly a pretty typical belgian white. Might just be my tastes, but they all taste the same to me. body was light and texture was thin. Carbonation was fizzy on the tongue and had a bitterness to finish.

The best things about this beer are its appearance and flavor. Aroma was slight and body was perhaps a touch thin. They did pretty good with the flavor though and I could see having more.

First can I was like, WTF is this? But by the second can I was sold. Definitely a beer that stands out for its itness - no other beer is like it. Ginger is too strong, lemongrass is powerfully present, but there is a great saison foundation here and once you get past the unfamiliarity the beer settles in as notably unique. I’ve had two Westbrook beers now and I am ready to say this is one of the better brewers in America.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ever so slightly hazy copper coloured body with hints of orange and a thin white head, less than a centimetre tall. Aroma of grain, coriander seed, wheat, cereal and a touch of curacao. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive coriander seed and curacao flavours up front with some full oranges and light spices noticeable as well. Aftertaste shows more grain and a good deal of unfinished yeast in the mix, all with more body than I expected. Overall, a nicely layered wit with some odd profiles and atypical tastes, but largely still a good beer, especially for the style and even more especially so, served in a can. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 18-July-2014 for US$2,50 sampled at home in Washington on 20-February-2015 a few hours before leaving for Charleston, SC.
