You can tell from the nose you're in for a saison, but something about it seems "off." The body follows through with that odd character. Something isn't quite right.

Huh, very surprised to see the decent reviews on this beer.

Let's get down to it, there were basically no saison aspects to this beer. Tastes like a light beer with some odd sweetness on the end. No discernible peppery or spicy notes.

Overall, this was a fail. Perhaps we had a bad/old bottle, but this was mediocre at best.

Slightly above average saison that hits all of the expected notes. Taste is lemon, honeydew melon, and light grass. Above average, but there are others I prefer in the style.

A light saison that would pair nicely with spicy seafood like crawfish. I refer to this as a light saison, as it doesn't have the overbearing spiciness of so many saisons. Cool label. I'd buy this again for the next time I go to a Louisiana seafood feast or just to drink on a warm day.

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold color with off-white head. Caramel malts, light funk, farmhouse saison yeastiness, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a typical saison funk and a slight spice.
