look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- Pours a slight finger of pure white head. Body is as you would expect- hazy grapefruit/dark straw. Lots of lacing left behind.
Nose- Lots of bubblegum. Faint hints of watermelon along with other fruits- cherry, melon, and peach. This is described as a Wild Saison but there is nothing funky on the nose. Hints of Hi-C, pink lemonade as well. Not bad, just not the aroma I expect from this style.
Taste- The nose is very indicative of the flavor profile. Light pink lemonade, lots of fruitiness which tastes generic and flabby. Some woody hops around the edges of the tongue. Lots of bubblegum/lollipop flavors that doesn't integrate well with the hops. This could be desirable for some, but it doesn't work for me. Ever so insignificant notes of straw or barnyard but not as much as I like in a saison.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and a bit too heavy for the style. More carbonation would improve the texture and improve its rendition of the style.
Overall- 3.5. Not a bad beer. Worth trying. It loses points because it fails to truly represent the style. Probably a B+ if it were reclassified.
Serving type: on-tap
