12 oz caged bottle. Poured into teku. Pours clear light orange with a single finger white bubbly head. Smell is a little bit of funk, some straw, some spice, some refreshing citrus. Taste starts with some sweet red velvet cake flavor, some dry wheat, some spicesome ever slight citrus from the mandarin, the peppercorn is really only present during the after taste. Overall this was really good but wasn't as funky as I prefer for a saison, also not enough peppercorn, I'd prefer some burn. Worth picking up a bottle but not as spicy and refreshing as you'd imagine from a fruity spicy saison.
