Tasted on cask. This one was just weird. Funky, but beyond even the norm of a Saison. Almost like it had started to go sour.

Would Drink Again: No

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

Appearance: cloudy, orangish, effervescent; small frothy head, long lasting, decent lacing

Smell: citrus and coriander dominate; maybe some pine; smells great

Taste: juicy malts with citrus pith dryness up front; orange and coriander come in in the mid; finishes with semi sweet with a grapefruit like feel on the tongue

Mouthfeel: medium with some bubbly zip

Remarks: decent example for the style and I'd buy it again

This has a nice spicy characteristic. It tastes more like a rye beer than a belgian IPA. The spiciness is very pronounced with a very complimentary hop profile.

Pours a two-finger cream head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Cloudy pale amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops, Belgian yeast and some orange rind, not as hoppy as an IPA. $2.15 for a 12 oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

A Belgium white ipa. If that sounds good to you, you may enjoy. I didn't care for the taste, but Belgium whites and ipa's are not my favorite styles.

Good strong spiced fruit aroma follows into the front and turns into a good hoppy bitterness and a nice boozy kick at the end.
