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

3.03/5  rDev -26.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a flute glass.

Beer pours almost like champagne. Very carbonated and light and fizzy. A ton of head- like 3 fingers worth.

Beer smells of bannannas and slightly grassy and earthy.

Beer tastes like the smell, but very muted.

Mouthfeel is extremely carbonated like champagne.

Not my favorite saison.

Serving type: bottle
