Can from lupulo. Undated.
Tastes like the hops used were super old or substituted with asparagus.
I enjoy and respect the earthy/barnyard tastes in a saison, but it tastes like they added dirt.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

No canned on date. Served from 12oz can into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Odd light rust color with 1/2-finger of foamy off-white head with average retention and no lacing.

S: Burnt leaves and light cheesiness with a hint of crackery pils malt

T: Slight tannic, leafy, tobacco, beyond earthy hop notes with thankfully a bit of soft pils breadiness to offset. Bitterness is low-medium and there is not a lot of yeast character.

M: light bodied with a dry finish but a bit undercarbonated.

O: I am not a fan of aged hops used in high quantities I can safely say from this beer and Tiny Bubbles , both have a harsh leafy, tannic, tea-like, strongly earthy character that comes off sharp and harsh, less so in this beer but definitely there. Fonta Flora is 1 for 3 which is good in baseball but not so hot in craft beer.
