Picked this up for less that $5 at TW in Chantilly. Love the bottled-on date!

Appearance: a cloudy, honey color with an white(ish) head.

Smell: loads of malt leap out of the glass, followed by typical saison aromas: grain, yeast, a hint of hops.

Taste: similar to the smell with a biting medicinal tone; almost like someone dropped a cough drop into the bottle. Less yeasty and crisp than other saisons.

Mouthfeel: lots o' bubbles (i.e. heavy carbonation

Drinkability: Usually saisons are light, crisp, and refreshing. This example was a bit more work due to the medicinal quality; too off-putting in my opinion, considering the myriad options in the style.

a much more hopped up version of a saison...but i like it. still very
earthy/grassy....wild. you'd think it was some off-hand, brilliant IPA from a po-dunk area of these wonderful states. erase that. brilliant. nearly world-class. would love to have this on tap
