look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: slightly hazy golden with medium head and lacing, and retention
S: little funky, can't place it exactly, but a little citrusy overcome by an old sneaker/wet dog kinda smell - in an interesting way, not good or bad
T: more citrus (without too much tartness) that pineapple to me, tending towards lime. Funkiness similar to the smell comes in after initial taste, probably from the hops, earthy in nature
M: little dry for a saison
O: for as much as it seems I would dislike it, the oddball factor makes me intrigued. Doubt I could do more than one at a time though.

Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont in a sampler flight.

Real nice brass lemon gold body, with good thin pinhead carbonation always present. Soft creamy white head is present and a whipped up collar to match. Body is a little cloudy maybe even slightly hazy also, and there's some thin lacing while consuming.

Nose is particular focused on Belgian like sucrose sweetness, with only a little farmhouse sense coming out at all. Lots of thick sugar, and not particularly fruity at all.

Palate finally brings some pineapple but it's very mild, with some little slight funk and bitterness. Juicy to thick palate feel. Very large hop floral aromatics on the finish, leaving a large garden mellow bitterness on the swallow. Mouthfeel seems to weaken strangely as time passes which seems odd.

Overall where's the pineapple? That being said it's still makes a drinkable beer, but not an ideal saison for myself.
