"...ale with a variety of flowers, including L. augustifolia, A. nobilis, C. officinallis and a generous amount of H. lupulus." After some googling that equals lavendar, yarrow, dandelion and hops.

Gold with a lumpy blanket of white foam on top. Clear to cloudy depending on first or last pour.

Smells like green bananas and must. Tastes very spicy with a burnt agave nectar sweetness which is really, really nasty.

This was a drainpour.

750ML format, wine goblet.

A: Deep bright-ish orange, gave it my usual "high pour" while billowy head that fade quickly but leaves nice lacing.

S: TANGERINE!! And flowers, which ones I can't say but very sweet and floral. I like the floral aroma but can't image this being a positive when it comes to the taste.

T/M: Very sweet upfront, some orange like flavors, more so clementine than tangerine on the tongue (as opposed to the aroma) and then the saison yeast finally rears it's head at the very end in the form of a dry finish. Otherwise far far too syrupy for my liking and for the style.

O: Not bad, I've had it multiple times but I just started reviewing on here and can't remember much of how the beer was the first couple of times I'd had it. And although I understand the beer, I'm just not the greatest fan of it.
