750ml Bottle from Total Wine Clearwater FL for 2.99$ (bargain!)
Appearance - Hazy gold colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint acing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes. There are also some particles floating around in it.
Smell - Breads/grains, guava, coriander
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste bread/grains mixed with some lemons. There is also some coriander and some yeasty notes and a guava fruitiness. It ends with a spicy yet fruity aftertaste.
Overall - Wow, really good stuff. I was expecting this to taste artificial and way too fruity. It's a great saison with only subtle hints of fruit. If I lived in Florida I'd take a truck over to Total Wine and but whatever they had left at 2.99$ for 750ml. I guess it's out of season but it still tastes fantastic.

Trader tells me this is an 09 bottle "back when it used to be good."
A- Hazy honey, with 1/4 finger white cloud head. Very low retention.
S- Best category here. Smells of some passionfruit, not sure if I can pinpoint it to guava considering I live in Colorado. The "malt" beverage follows... ugh. Not a fan of malt beverage.
T- That being said; the passionfruit was the best thing to add to this malt beverage base. I couldn't imagine not drainpour w/o guava. It has the traditional malt beverage taste.
M- A bit much carb for me; kinda harsh. Kinda creamy, kinda smooth. Nothing exceptional.
O- If I had another, I would find someone who likes the style and give it to them.
