4.28/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16 oz. can.
Canned 10/22/20.

Moderate pour yields a one inch off-white head over a murky body with sticky lacing. Nose of citrus (orange, tangerine) with some floral attributes and a bit of spice. Taste is sweet citrus all the way and finishing with a slight citrus peel bitterness and spice. Also, there is some slightly odd (not in a bad way) flavor, maybe due to the use of the three (oats, wheat, pilsner) malts? Anyway, it has a great feel and overall, a rather pleasant experience while hiding its 10% abv really well.
Cheers!

From a 16oz can, dated 08/08/19. Served in a tulip.

Pours a thick and turbid, dull orange with a scant finger of soft, soapy suds. Retention is so-so-OK leaving a fizzy cap and a thin, slippery sheet of lacing.

Smell is densely malty and juicy with a whiff of vanilla creme.

Taste is... not the sweet malt-bomb I was expecting. Instead it’s mildly tart and a little funky. Lime, guava, kiwi and mildew. Juicy and dank with a funk twist, little detectable malt in the body and virtually zero bitterness.

Feel is smooth and juicy, surprisingly light bodied for its heft and with moderate carbonation.

Overall, a little weird, but not in a totally bad way just, you know, weird. I keep going back and forth on whether or not I taste brett or if I’m just imagining it. I could maybe be convinced that this is an imperial kettle-soured saison but, at 10%, by the time I’ve gotten to summarizing the beer, everything’s getting a little jumbled.
