2.04/5  rDev -41.5%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

A collaboration beer from Fantome and Hill Farmstead. Poured from a bottle into a d'Achouffe tulip. It's got an interesting color - orange. I don't mean amber or mahogany, I mean this stuff is almost as orange as kool-aid. Unfortunately, even the most violent pour I could manage produced so little head that it hardly deserves to call itself a Saison. The nose is really nice. I get a fruity acidity that strikes a nice chord between the noses of a Saison and of an American IPA.

The flavor is well below average for the style and the complete lack of carbonation makes the mouthfeel rather squishy and disgusting. There is a fair amount of grainy sweetness and lactic acidity that makes up the flavor profile. It doesn't have much complexity at all - no peppery notes, no spice, no balancing flavors of bitterness or herbal notes. It's just a sweet and sour flavor reminiscent of stir-fry sauce that does not distinguish itself at all. It's very unappetizing and practically undrinkable.

I was really looking forward to trying this beer and it was an enormous disappointment. Moreover, I feel really stupid for being suckered into buying it because Hill Farmstead was involved (note to self - remember your 3rd rule of beer-drinking: no collaboration beers!). The less said the better. If you're reading this, avoid the temptation to try this stuff.

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.
