From a trade by d0b. Great trader made it so easy on me pulling off my first trade.
No dating on the 22. Why not? I don't understand. Maybe the Rabbit is just to Rabbid.
No foaming at he mouth here. In fact there is little foam at all. Far from what you expect from the style. Barely any head develops and what does almost instantly disappears. A nice opaque gold color though.
There is something on the nose that reappears through out the entire beer, which I can't quite put my finger on. It is sort of like a cross between cinnamon gum, rotting orange and crushed mint. I can't really decide if I like it or not. It is both repulsive and intriguing. One of the weirdest things I've ever smelt in a beer.
It is also one of the weirdest things I've ever tasted in a beer. It is so persistent and lasting that it really becomes overwhelming by half way through the first glass. But, if you dig through it becomes so much more tropical and citrus-y. Pineapple and Clementine. I think what it is that there is more of the banana-ish ester quality here that I'm just unfamiliar with in this style. I like my Saisons hard, kick you in the shins hard. This is soft and flowery, almost sweet when you get down to it.
The sensation in the mouth is not unlike eating a fresh orange. The bitterness of the pith with the sweet/tart flesh overriding it. Repeat with each wedge/sip.
This grows on you after all. Once your palate succumbs the Rabbit makes you sort of Rabbid for this unusual, mind warping Saison.
Thanks again d0b. If nothing else this one made me work to review it.
