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 :(

12 ounce can, canned on 11/14/13. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch white head. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like peppery spice, cardamom, bready/grainy malt, and some citrus. It tastes like wheat malt, lemon peel, clove, cardamom, peppery spice and some earthy/floralness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy enough to drink. I liked this brew, it's worth trying if you've never had it before.
