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

This is a good looking and smelling beer, but what caught me was the taste. It just tastes fabulous, the funk and a touch of sour are really a fantastic combo and make this beer work extraordinarily well. I hesitated a while before finally buying this beer. I was Saisoned out, but this beer renews my faith in a classic style.
