Frosty 12 oz can into pint glass
Appearance - Hazy golden, fizzy 1 finger head dissipates to almost nothing, not much lacing.
Smell - fruity yeast, quite spicy with the advertised cardamom being apparent, slight funk
Feel/Taste - Yikes...feel and taste aren't doing it for me. Prickly carbonation, medium/heavy body. Flavor starts out as quite medicinal herbs, kind of minty, with the cardamom spice, then moves into straight up bandaid funk flavor and slight graininess. Finishes dry and a bit astringent; flat.
Overall - Admittedly, I haven't tried a great deal of saisons, but this one has been the most unappealing thus far. Mouthfeel isn't very crisp and seems disjointed with the weird bandaid/rubber funk and spice flavors. Not a big fan of the astringent finish. It's difficult taking down this sixer :(

A - pale yellow, translucent, 2 finger head
S - sharp aromatic smell of fruits, cardamom is very dominant, can detect some other spices, underlying smell of banana, slight nutty smell
T - very sweet, strong taste of cardamom, pineapple and bananas, very slight bitterness left on the palette that follows the sweetness
M - watery and light, sharp taste
O - The cardamom is very strong here and doesn't leave much taste/smell other things, which is both a good and bad thing. I enjoyed this beer overall and would drink it again. I personally really liked how the beer smelled and tasted. The strong cardamom was welcoming with the fruity and nutty undertones being barely present but still existing. Good saison overall.

A-Funny can art. Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a thinner, white head. Soft on the lace.
S-Aroma is heavy with the pungent cardamom. That combined it's the Belgian yeast makes for one spicy, clovey aroma. Some peppery aromas, too. Somewhat fruity.
T-Cardamom, clove, pepper. Light fruity notes with some grassy hops as well. The spices are too bold.
M-Medium bodied, well carbonated. A bit of a lingering feel to it.
O-Was not a big fan of this. Not into all the spice flavor. It takes away from the other elements of the beer.
