The beer is really foamy and out of the bottle is mostly head.

On the palate, it is the same, very overcarbonated. Past that, the beer drinks extremely thin for 8.5%. The fruit qualities are of fresh pear, a bit of apple, grassiness, hints of saison yeast spice. A little floral and funk. Dry, but lacking in flavor on the back end.

Surprisingly disappointing for the hype on this brew.
