Poured a cloudy orange with two finger head that goes down slow and left minor lace patches around glass. I can pick up the yeast in the aroma at first, and this along with tropical fruit notes like pear/mango give beer a sweet aroma, aided by touches of sugary malts, citric hops and clove spice and some funk. Maybe had a bad/old bottle (there was dust on it at store I bought) but compared to other reviews I did not have same experience most people had. Beer is smooth, medium-bodied, easy to drink. There is a slightly nutty, sugary sweet quality to this beer and it mixes with some dirty hops and a touch of funk. I get some minor fruit flavors that are akin to tropical and are touches of citric thanks to the hops. However, especially as beer warms b/c I slowly sipped on it since I had whole bomber to myself, it starts to get grainy and the flavors break down and it is more dry (not boozy since such low ABV to start). Not a bad beer but it is apparent that I didn't enjoy it as much as others.

Hazy golden orange color. thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Citrusy, spicy, fruity eatery nose. Great yeast profile. Light tart, moderate sweet, moderate bitter. Some caramel malt. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Solid saison. Has a slight stale hop aroma to it though.

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with white head. Funk, light fruits, spice, and bready wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a slightly sweet and funky note.
