22oz bomber from quail creek.

Clear orange with a touch of amber. not much head or lacing

Smell is very sweet and fruity. more than the average saison. heavy pear and even cactus noted.

Taste is sweet with some citrus but more tart fruits are present. cactus is more noted as the brew warms. very unique taste that i personally like but some might not get. pear comes though better when cold.

Mouth is slick and clean like all lips of faith imo.

overall a different take on classic saison's but i like it. the price is a tad heavy at 8 a bomber but great for the holidays. might age well but not sure may have to try.

A- Golden Caramel color with a white head and okay retention.

S- Some saison yeast flavor to sour out the sweetness of all sorts of fruit and a little bubblegum.

T- Follows the nose to some extent, but the funky flavor is brought even more extremely than I expected. Big banana and some overripe peach.

M- Good amount of carbonation. The aftertaste is of course sour and leaves me satisfied rather than reaching for my next sip, as is the case too often with sweet fruity beers.

O- The is somewhat of a one-trick pony, but it is very good at that one trick!Worth a try if you get the chance
