This does not auger well...

The bar was dotted with cool Taxman Brewing schwag: they had a burnt wood tap handle, some coasters, and a set of little postcards that explained in very simple terms what a Saison is. The bartender said they'd been selling a heck of a lot of Taxman, so I said sure, pour me one.

It was bad.

Pours fine. Smells aggressively sweet. Tastes hideously, poisoningly sweet, with a pronounced and unpleasant bitter back end, like someone crushed up a bunch of aspirin into some raw agave nectar. I could not finish the pint, and for several hours afterward I was haunted by bursts of aftertaste that still clung to my mouth. Even after I brushed my teeth, the horror of this beer remained.

All this would normally be forgivable. Saisons are hard to brew, and even established, excellent breweries sometimes screw them up. It's also okay for a new brewer to stumble a bit out of the gate and release some bad batches. But when so much money is spent on marketing a beer, and when the beer comes replete with a literal postcard announcing itself not only a stellar example of its style but also as the brewery's flagship--well then, that beer better be decently brewed. This was not. And so I do not have high hopes for Taxman. (1,251 characters)
