3.2/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy, dark amber body with a runty, beige head.

Smell: A scent of strawberries, raspberries, and even sloe berries soaking in spirits with whole cloves atop some bready malts.

Taste: Sharply sweet with an instant vibrant fruitiness of mixed berries. Some banana esters join the alcohol for a splash of 99 Bananas. Notably phenolic giving a big clove-like flavor. One thing it never seems is smoky. As you head towards the relatively crisp finish, you rebound into the fruitiness, cloves, alcohol, but, again, no real smoke character.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation with a surprising amount of tingle on the tongue given the small head and sedentary appearance.

Overall: A fair saison, though, with its bold characteristics, it is, for me, a very slow sipper.
