3.96/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A - As I was pouring it, I became a bit worried. Thin, bubbly head that quickly receded. No lace. No sparkle in the color. Hazy, but not that hazy. Golden copper in color. Not much here.
S - Similar to the appearance, there wasn't much to grab hold of here. I get the aroma of what I consider to be an "abbey" scent. Slightly musty, but in a good way, if that makes sense.
T - More Abbey Tripel than Farmhouse Saison. So I can see how the collaboration is working here. The taste follows the nose. Nice, complex flavors, ever so slight bitterness. Mild sweetness. The abbey/farmhouse funk is the lead player here. Barely noticeable alcohol on the finish.
M - A little thinner than I would like, but nice fully carbonated feel. Slightly tingly on the tongue. Want to rate higher, but just a bit too thin. Mildly dry. Cleaner than I expected.
O - As others have said before me, it's a good beer and a good value. I'm going to enjoy my bomber tonight. It will not blow your hair back, or knock your socks off. It will, however, float your boat.

A: Copper filtered with a lot of carbonation and 2 fingers of off white yellowish head.
S: Fruity orange and spice, black pepper, Belgian yeasts, funkiness, butter, licorice.
T: Light orange creamsicle, a Belgian yeast quality, nail polish remover, some sweet corn on the end.
M: Thin body, lots of foamy carbonation leaving it creamy.
O: Some nice light summery fruity orange qualities, refreshing and light on the palate. Drank July 21, 2014, in Boca Raton. Got in North Carolina.
