On tap at Plan B in W. Htfd, CT. I drink a lot of Saison, and this is wayyy off the style for a Saison. Citrus, clove, some of the ester profile I associate with the wheat/white homebrew styles of a decade ago (or today, but that is the time period I associate with banana/clove hysteria). I would have pegged it as "spiced hefeweizen" or a summer beer with an identity crisis. Hop character was completely supressed under the spice. It makes for a very drinkable pint, even at 7.5%, but there is much better to be had.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle bought from chucks in seattle. Bottled on May 27 2014. Thin white head that fades immediately. Smells of biscuit malt, sweet, earthy with a hint of spice. Tastes bready, with a dry spicy finish. Good example of a saison but there is a flavor that I can't quite put my finger on which sticks out and makes it less tasty than others. I'd like more hop character on the finish.
