This wants to be an excellent, delicious beer - the flavors are there but they are muted.
There's just a little bit of that saison funk happening - I actually don't mind that being dialed back a bit, but something has to replace it. There's a spice layer, but it's faint. And there's a fruit layer, which is a tasty mix something like apricot and peach, but it's also faint. It's like these flavors have been baked out.
There's also a not as pleasant fruit peel taste. If they could amplify or saturate all of the tastes but that one, this would be such a rich and delicious beer. It's definitely refreshing, but just leaves me wanting and unsatisfied, like there's a hole in it where things are supposed to be.
This is my first biere de garde so I couldn't say how this one rates within the style. The style itself sounds like what I want, so I hope to find other good ones.
