Poured out into my glass dark gold to amber color with little to no head to speak of. The nose is mostly spicy and citrusy hops. The tastes confirms the nose, a healthy amount of citrus and spice, mimicking a Belgian style with the spice, and an APA with all the hops involved here. Decent mouthfeel, finishes a bit oily.

A 5oz free sample from the bartender tasted so fresh I decided to get a 64oz growler, and I'm very glad that I did. Evil Eye pours dark gold and slightly hazey. This fresh sample has good carbonation, not producing a huge head, just about a 1/4 inch, but supplying a lace til the glass is empty. Smell is of peppery Belgian yeast, and citrusy American hops,with the yeast taking the lead. Taste is more of the same only the hops are the dominant. I have tried Belgian brews with American hops before, but usually in combination with european hops and in more subtle doses. Evil Eye is an American hop bomb. Try it before dinner to get your gastro juices flowing before switching to something more appropriate for the main course. Looking forward to trying more from Milly's Tavern.

Served up dark gold with amber tinging, hazy and no head.
Spicey, phenolic nose.
Light malt accented with tart fruit, loads of ginger, hints of citrus and black pepper.
Medium/ thin on the pallet, light carbonation and zesty.
Ginger up front, fading to a balance of spicing.
Finishes with cloves, burnt wires, bannanas, hints of anise and lemon zest.
Crisp and refreshing, albeit heavy on the ginger.
The belgian character is a bit subdued for a saison, could use a bit more funkiness, but tasty nonetheless.
Also requires much more carbonation to do justice to the nice aromatics.
Growler time.
