Bottle courtesy of robinsmv. Thanks, Matt!
I tipped the bottle to my glass and the foam, temporarily, blocked the beer from pouring out. Unusual.
It pours a hazy orange with a big head of foam. It's shrinking slowly but I can see some lacing left behind.
It smells very yeasty with some fruitiness in the background. A Saison that smells yeasty? No prob.
It has an earthy malt flavour up front followed some lemon zest, tropical fruit(light), a bit of a peppery spicy note, light bready notes, and quite a bit of an alcohol burn. This is not your typical Saison and I'll have to do some more sips before I can let the jury out.
On the high end of medium bodied with lively carbonation, the mouthfeel is okay.
After careful consideration...I find that I'm not a fan. No swerve on Matt for sending this my way intended. I'm glad I got a chance to try it.
