3.03/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

LOOK: Brassy hue, crackling lace

SMELL: Medicinal, musty yeast, herbal, grainy, exotic fruit, mint, watermelon rind, green peppercorn

TASTE: Mild crispness, slick mouthfeel, spicy, mint, orangey, exotic fruit, peppery, bready, mild funk, yeast, warming alcohol, biscuity, faint tobacco, grainy semi-dry finish.

A good stab at the whole saison thing, I personally think the saison fad is wavering and only a handful really stand out. Too much booziness, the fruit gets lost from the alcohol and spiciness of the yeast. Not my bag baby ... pretty hard to drink this one but give it a go if you like the boozier saisons.

Serving type: bottle

3.53/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Had on tap at Max's (from notes)

A: Copper with light lacing.

S: Lots of yeast and farmhouse scents. Wet blanket.

T: A bit of funk with subtle citrus but mostly farmhouse. Subdued odd earthy flavors/aftertaste.

M: Nice and prickly. Coarse bubbly.

O: I think the earthiness came from the prickly pear.

Serving type: on-tap
