Whew. This tastes like I am biting into a pile of herbs or something. It's way overboard, and the saison tones are quite soapy. No balance at all here. I think that after recently trying Liopard Oir, my standards for a saison have been refreshed in my mind. Unfortunately, this comes nowhere close. A miss, in my book.

3.25/5 rDev -10.5%

Had this on draft at Bar Louie because they were out of Hennepin.
Pours a fairly clear but dark golden straw color. Doesn't look like much body from the pour. Head had good retention and a nice lace.
Smell was good for the style with the typical farmhouse funkiness you expect. Dank citrus fruits and some white pepper spice dominate.
Taste was a step down because the pepper overwhelms. Really, nothing else is noticed.
Mouthfeel also suffers because my palate is ruined from he spice. A bitterness in the the finish is the only thing else to pick up.
Overall it's a fair beer, just nothing to write home about.
Serving type: on-tap
