Picked this up at a Binny's in Naperville while visiting the fam over the holidays.

Served in a Game of Thrones glass.

A: Poured an extremely murky orange, with a 3-4 finger fluffy white head that hung around for a good bit.

S: Much better than the reviews have led on. Lots of barnyard, farmhouse funk, with added Pixie Stick dust. Man candy!

T: Very smooth, but somewhat boring. Even though I got a bit more pink peppercorn that some of the other spices (e.g.. coriander, ginger, etc), this really wasn't dominated by any one particular spice, which is probably a compliment unto itself.

M: Very bubbly and spritzy, with almost a marshmallowy silkiness. Airy…… I see gas in my future! A slight bit of lacing left on the glass, but nothing to write home about.

O: I liked this one a lot more than others on here, however, considering the over $10 price tag, I can see why others might bit disappointed.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

a hazy orange pour with 2 fingers of fluffy bright white head. spotty lacing. smells of lemongrass, bell pepper, bread, very yeast-heavy scent. a very funky flavor.. starts off with a black pepper-like spice, which then has a weird bitterness to it, and a funky yeast creates almost a balogna like taste towards the finish. the peppercorn flavor is dominant but not off putting. a very nice saison. medium body with high carbonation, perfect to refresh yourself after a hot day.

not a bad saison, but i like the other variant i had of this a little better. the french yeast strain they used has a somewhat weird lingering flavor that i can't get too behind. not usre if they used the same yeast in the other one but it was not noticeable.
