On tap at the brewery on 9/24/11.
"Brewed as a wedding ale with rose hips, cherries, and orange peel."
A - Dark in color for a saison - it was a ruddy copper color with a short head. Doesn't leave much in the way of lace.
S - Funky and peppery with plenty of clove esters going on.
T - Odd at first, this saison tasted of tart ripened red cherry peel then progressed into some sweet apple action. Not as funky as the aroma professed.
O - I suppose with saisons there are few if any rules guuiding what they ought to taste like, but I'll just say that this one didn't seem to fully work for me.

On-tap at the Avery Tap Room. Feckless arrived with a cloudy peach hue and a wispy eggshell cap that slowly fell to a ring at the beer's edge.
Feckless has a very fruity and floral character due to the herbs used in it (I should have written down what they were). The sourdough theme I look for in this style is alive as well. A sharp coriander bitterness carries a touch of citrus. The alcohol adds a hint of heat going down. The body is fairly light and slightly grainy. Carbonation is a bit low for my tastes.
Overall, Feckless is a nice beer. I'm glad I picked it up.
