3.2/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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 :(

Bought a six pack at Safeway. Poured from can into glass. Hazy gold color, frothy white head that leaves a thin cap on top. Smells of coriander and other spices. Getting a bit of ginger or something too. Tastes are very spiced. Too much for me. Faint citrus touches with a lot of spice. Not sure what this would taste like out of a bottle but I never feel a can enhances anything. This is ok but just doesn't floor me. Too bad because I love this style.

At first taste, this seems closer to witbier/Berliner weisse, light and bubbly. some spice and floral notes. Lots of yeast, sourdough aspects to this. some light citrus on the palate, short finish. Doesn't have the full body of the French/Belgian varieties, aroma not as full either.
