Its probably widely variant, but I bet people either love or hate this beer; starting right with the appearance, the antifreeze green I thought was dope as hell, but you know how some of them mark ass bustaz be all like "oohh that's nasty" or some shit like they ain't never fucked with some hardcore shit from the streets.

Aroma is a trip. Its like a bunch of belgian saison spice racks, lemon, apple, pepper and copper. Its unusual, but not as much as that lime green look it is rockin'.

Taste, not a fan, bitter, some real different spice rack phenols going on. Mouthfeel is equally disdainful because the taste isn't all that, so how could the mouthfeel. . .

Definitely one of the strangest beers I've had. Slimer green in color. Nice aroma - musty basement, elderflower, Flintstone vitamin. Tastes is reminiscent of Sake. Notes of overripe pear, green tea, cantaloupe, white pepper. Slightly unpleasant medicinal finish. Soft mouthfeel. Bottle says it was best before February 2014 so I'd love to try a freshie to compare. Not great, but worth trying for sure.

Pours green-tinged with a large head.
Nose shows soft saison farmhouse notes, lemon, elderflower and green tea.
Flavours instead focus on apricot and some acidity followed by lemon, green tea, and earthy saison notes.
