The weirdest beer out there, try two bottles from the same batch and they will both be noticeably different - a fantome for sure.
All the labels say the same thing on the Shelton imports, so you don't really get any info aside from alcohol content, batch and best by if you are lucky.
One thing that carries over in the taste is the taste of sour tangerine candy - you know, sour gummy worms and such. It's like that, holding the torch for the most heavy unicorn blanket taste out there.

Moderate carbonation with a pretty pure white head.

So inconsistent but consistently wonderful saison.
