3.48/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A: yellow straw colored very cloudy, almost no head
S: little clean malt, little funk, little grape. Very very light
T: funky, little spices, I get some grape flavor, not sure id say champagne as some would say but close. Grassy light hops. Very dry
M: very little carbonation
O: my father had it at the same time and we both agreed that the smell disappointed and kinda made the beer off putting, most Saisons I've had had a far better smell even the carnevale and the red barn ale. Much prefer the other LA Saisons

Edit: I might have had a bad bottle, I'll give it another go when LA has this years batch

Serving type: bottle

3.76/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: light and very cloudy, whipped cream head at 1.5 inch holds stubbornly like merengue. Cloudiness is rather disturbing.

N: dirty, light toasted Saison malt strong on the nose, slightly fruit overtone, touch of pepper. Pleasant yeasts.

T: close to the nose. Very nice ale, can pick up the raisins on the taste but not the pepper so much. Very bubbly and light on the mouthfeel, a lingering warmth. (Thick head still holds thru duration)

The appearance threw me, but this is actually a pretty good farmhouse ale. I would purchase and serve to friends.
