3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Funky Buddha. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is spice, sweet banana, hint of honey, bubblegum and farmyard. The taste is dough, citrus pith, pepper, quite a bit of spice, banana, straw, farmyard and honey, with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. A well-made saison, but it didn’t blow me away.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the Funky Buddha. Nice cloudy pour with a big fluffy head. Aroma up front is mostly spicy and peppery with hints of lemon zest and banana. Flavor is very balanced between the peppery-ness and the spice. Not my favorite style but they did a fine job here.
