A saison using a specific, Japanese developed hops - I wanted very much to like this beer if only for the innovation. But, I just couldn't. The hops varietal had, to my perception, a very off character, a bit funky but not in a good way. The mouthfeel was also a bit light and fizzy, and not a good fit with the hops burden the beer was attempting to bear. Not for me, and I gotta' call 'em like I see them.

750 ml bottle. Pours golden hue with a long lasting, tall, white head. Aroma is of heffeweizen like fruit, yeast and spices. Medium, smooth body. Taste is spicy hops and cooked vegetables. I did not really enjoyed this brew. Maybe I've head a bad bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

On tap at St Augustines in Vancouver.

A: 1/8" white head over cloudy straw coloured liquid.

S: Lemon, floral hops and yeast predominate along with a strong aroma of cat urine.

T: Lemon, pepper, banana, floral hops, orange rind, wheat and yeast.

M: Medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: Not the most drinkable Farmhouse Ale I have had. Not worth the price tag in my opinion.

Serving type: on-tap
