look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

bottle pops loudly, lots of smoke. pours with a huge unmanageable head. aroma has some banana and peanut butter, earthy grains. really bitter beer, and very tart, lot of citrus peel, lime. well balanced once the head settles. just solid. if not for the price i'd buy more of it

Serving type: bottle

375mL into a tulip. Pours a pale hazy yellow w/ a bright white head.

Aroma is intriguing. Lime? Chamomile? Cilantro? Pepper? Orange? I'm getting a lot of surprising smells but the label just says golden raisins and white pepper. Curious...

Taste is likewise complex and unique. Citrus, spice, blood orange, pepper. A rustic, earthy, grassy quality holds it together. Nicely juicy.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, balanced.

Overall a very different saison, and enjoyable.
