3.59/5 rDev -3.8%
Appearance - The beer pours the color of liquid gold. A modest white head clings to the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma initially makes me think of banana liquor, but then I get the pear. The saison notes hover between liquor and funk.
Taste - On the initial taste, I detect a bitter wash of farmhouse funk. The bitterness hovers amid the carbonation. I am made to think of soured banana chips or a dry sour candy. The beer finishes a mediciny sour taste.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation is quote present and almost attacks the tongue. It does sweep away the taste rather nicely.
Overall - Shorts eccentric brews are sometimes an adventure. Some are winners and some are not winners. While I love the Elton John reference in the beers namesake (my personal favorite album from Sir Elton), I am not a fan of the beer.
