Crazy beer. First - almost no head on this one, and what was there quickly fell to nothing more than a thin collar. Second is the aroma... herbs you say? Yes, HERBS. Mint, rosemary, sage and thyme. Wrap these aromas around tangerine citrus, and throw some green apples/pears into the mix... I swear I get graham cracker as well... crazy spicing. You get the idea... strangely, it kinda all works. Except for the lack of anything resembling funk. Big minus.
Taste is harsh. Bold grapefruity hops up front followed by those spices... no balance. The spicing really doesn't work at all, and distracts from what may have been a solid beer in there, somewheres... Again, no funk.
Mouthfeel is off as well. Kinda syrupy, carbonation is lax and lifeless. Sweet towards the finish, with little to no dryness.

Not a bad beer, but a lackluster, borderline bad Saison.
