A nice clear reddish orange beer with a slightly off white head that leaves a little bit of lacing behind. The aroma is crackery with some hints of peppery spices, cloves and grapefruit. The taste is quite good with the traditional banana, clove and yeast of a Belgian style beer up front with a quick shot of pleasing grapefruit taste at the end which is complimented with a nice bitter finish. This is a pretty tasty beer.

Poured from a one-day old howler. The beer pours a hazy, orangish-amber color with a two finger, thin, white head.

The smell is sour, saison funk, and some grapefruit.

The taste is very grapefruit forward with a decent funky taste. There is some flavor I can't quite figure out and something slightly metallic, although that decreased as it warmed.

The mouthfeel is thick and oily with minimal carbonation.

Overall this is a bit muddled on flavors. The grapefruit Saison flavor comes through but there's something else in there that's slightly off.
