1.38/5  rDev -63.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

Appearance: A bright gold in color with a bone white head and some lacing.

Smell: Herbal notes coupled with some malt and hops. Its just immensely spice rack smelling.

Taste: Sharp and biting herbs. Sage comes through with some medicinal qualities, followed by the distinct taste of parsely and rosemary,with the parsely adding clorophyll to the beer which was out of place. Any subtle saison qualities have been over powered. Even for a spiced beer this is out of hand. Am I drinking potpourri blended with pasta spices? The spearmint and peppery notes from the blend are lost on the palate. All in all it becomes a mess of herbs that would be great in a stew or pasta, but awful in a beer. Where are the Saison qualities? Lost in the murk or perhaps not there at all.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a lingering herbal finish that almost tastes like a poorly made soup. Perhaps too many cooks in the kitchen in this case.

Drinkability: Pretty horrid. I would stay far away from this beer.

Overall: Epic Fail. I'd rather pour miller lite on a rag, wipe my spice rack clean and then drain it into a glass and drink it. This one tasted awful, if you are seeking a truly great Saison, try Saison Dupont or Saison Voisen.
