Purchased at Superior Market in Sunnyside NY. Corked and caged green bottle. Poured into a pint glass. A hazy dull dark gold color with a quick fading delicately bubbly white head.
Strong spicy and tart citrus aroma, not much funk or lemon zest. The aroma gets your attention in a hurry. Nice.
Tastes good. The spices and citrus are predominant. A little hops bite. The saison yeasty funk is more present in the taste than the aroma. Dry, tart aspect to the beer as well. The flavors are strong. There might even be some grains of paradise in the spice mix. This is great with food.
Mouthfeel is rich. The spices, tartness and slight hoppiness feel good on the tongue.
Not a typical saison, but still a very interesting take on the style.

Poured into a pint glass
A: Extremely thin, bubbly head quickly fades away. Looks like an orange cream soda. Def unfiltered, not really hazy just cloudy.
S: Herbal hop aroma with a dominant bacteria (sour) yeast characteristic jumping out of the glass. Zesty spice undertones. Fruity smell like a banana/strawberry milkshake.
T: Taste just like the smell just a lot smoother then expected. Backlash of Belgian yeast like banana/clove. Carbonation reminds more of soda then beer.
M: Immediately bubbly which carries throughout entire drinking experience. Not as sour as I expected usually the sours burn all the way down.
O: Reminds me of a Magic Hat Circus Boy and Ommegang Hennepin mixed together with a touch of sour. Drinkability is 10/10 but not the most flavorful I've encountered for saisons, still way above average. Very unique.
Serving type: on-tap
