3.54/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: yellow. Hazy. Small head. No lacing. Small grain particles sunk to bottom of glass upon pouring.
S: essence of banana. Small spice notes.
T: medium maltiness. Belgian like flavors. Definite cardamom. Strange bitterness at the end/aftertaste.
M: medium to high carbonation. Medium body. Dry.
O: meh. Has a funky aftertaste. Kinda metallic or weird bitterness that is not a yeast profile. Had grain fragments in can.
