3.16/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Picked up this bomber at my local Jewel Grocery store. I love how they've expanded their beer selection.

Clear, dull, copper copper. Very quick head and no residual foam. There's a few lazy pillars of bubbles.

Earthy, light hops, chalky dry smelling yeast. Mildly toasted, crisp crackers. maybe a little dry caramel.

Dry, but syrupy palate. Chalky, dry fruit yeast flavor. A little alcoholic heat. The finish is crackers, toasty, caramel, and faint grass.

Not a bad saison, but I probably won't buy this again.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours light hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big apricot, lemon, peach, pear, apple, light banana, clove, coriander, herbal, wheat, bread, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of apricot, lemon, peach, pear, apple, light banana, clove, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light amount of earthy yeast spice/hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, lemon, peach, pear, apple, light banana, clove, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, balance, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great yeast/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice French saison. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Not what I expected at all. I got this on tap at the brew pub and it came in a tulip glass. A golden color with no head and very minimal lacing. It smells and tastes sour with no maltiness. After reading some other reviews from a longtime ago that thought the lines may be infected, I think it's not that, it's just a bad beer.

Serving type: on-tap
