2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with a strong note of apricot, other notes of Mandarin orange and candy corn.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Yet another strike from this brewery, I’m afraid. This is about as far from the beauty of, say, Blackberry Farm Apricot Saison, as it can get. This is like an alcoholic apricot soda...a one-dimensional apricot bomb, candy-ish, and intensely sweet, with very little beer character or depth. An overpriced ($14) novelty beer drain pour, sadly. Saddening also that the word "saison" was even put on the label, because this is basically the exact opposite of what saison is about.

Hazy apricot-y golden under a thick foamy white cap. Big farm earthy wheaty nose with very gentle apricot flesh, and the flavor is the same. Mellow yet bright apricot, Belgian barnyard wheat, light citrus ester, and a slightly funky saison finish.
