2.05/5  rDev -41.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Batch 1

Pours a cloudy, bright golden orange color with apricot hues.  Completely still and even a very aggressive pour yields only the slightest bubbles that quickly fade into a vanishing thin ring.  No lace.  

Herbal, phenolic aroma with earthy flowers and a strong musty funky/wild yeast presence.  Slightly soily and earthy with damp, rotted wood, wild mushroom and decaying flower petals along with light and citrus fruit esters.  Subtle peppery spice as well.  Weird but I sort of find it oddly appealing.  

Light bodied and almost flat with faint carbonation and a very unpleasant dirty, phenolic flavor dominating the palate.  Rubber band and band aid notes are prominent along with subtle spice, dead/dirty flowers and bong water along with bread, green apple and banana.  Dry and somewhat chalky in the finish with a strong dirt/phenolic, rotten yeast presence killing off most of the flavor.   Very harsh and tough to drink.  A complete mess of a beer to be brutally honest.

reviewed from notes a few days ago. pretty sure this is the bad batch of this brew since this was...well, pretty bad. poured a murky orange with a big orange/pink head. nose is spicy saison. taste is a drinkableish smoky bandaide. fizzy carbonation...basically it is a mess. i could force it down, but why bother? i was the last one at the tasting to give up on it, but it did eventually slide down the drain. sorry sink.
