4.06/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a fairly clear orange with thick, soft foam.

Smell is sweet and yeasty with notes of pears, apples, orange juice and some mild esters.

Taste is mildly yeasty and very fruity. Notes of pears, oranges and a little bit of funk followed by some peppery spiceiness and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, with bright, sparkly carbonation.

Overall, a nice, non-traditional saison, very drinkable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap at Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco; temperature 45º.
A: Pours a dark straw/bronze color with a one half inch, white head, strong retention, and decent rings of lacing.
S: Tangy consistent with a lacto presence. Aromas of chardonnay, lemon, apple, caramel, and fresh bread.
T: The palate follows the nose with a bit more fruitiness, as well as cloves and some banana.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: Certainly an interesting saison, although aromas and flavors are all over the place. Not quite my cup of tea (or glass of beer).
