Paid $7.49 for a 6-pack...
The brew pours a cloudy golden base, moderate head, good head retention and lacing on the glass. The aroma is really funky, barnyard yeast mixed with some mellow sweet malt and hops.
The taste is hybird Saison-Experimental, low carbonation, great hop/malt blend, earthy flavors with a sweet aftertaste; definitely an acquired taste. Easy on the mouth and at 6.2% abv is a 2-3 session beer and then the experiment will grow as old as the creationist v. evolution debate.
Final Thought: It tastes better than it smells, but for some that would be enough, solid all-around; reminds me of Avery's 15th Anniversary Ale.
