Although it tastes like you are drinking pine needles, I still enjoyed it quite a bit.

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.

Yellow pour with lots of haze, white head, looked nice. Lemon pledge aroma, not impressed.

More lemon, lemon, lemon, up in this. Was really one dimensional. Didn't really pick up the sorachi ace hop, unless its just all lemon. Thicker consistency to the brew than I like in a saison, keeps it from having a crisp appeal to it. Belgian yeast flavors as well, with some tea leaves. Alcohol too pronounced, same with the bitterness and metallic flavors. Dare I detect some butter that actually was a better development than one would think.

I have no idea why some are apeshit for this, chalk it up to a region not having many loyalties to divide I guess. For me, this was just a bottle of lemon, coriander & clove.
