Lectio Divina

Having had the opportunity to first try the Saison by St. Somewhere, and being VERY impressed, I was excited to try this one especially as this beer has been given even better reviews by BA’s. Unfortunately, I disagree with many of those reviewers!
$8.99 from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
750 mL corked & caged with 2008 and St. Somewhere printed on the cork. Nice pop on opening. The beer pours much too dark (for a Belgian Pale) for my liking. The color is a dirty, clouded brown and defies the notion that is is a “pale”. Head is high and tight. I dislike the color, a lot!
Nose and tastes are an odd combination of sweetness and some funky character. Some bitterness, a little spice and some alcohol. A strange and odd marriage of a bunch of flavors which don’t work at all well for me. I’d describe it as a bit of an alcohol laden mess to be honest.
VERY disappointing considering the amount that I liked the Saison. Ho hum…
