Reviewed By: Herr Mike Style: Saison State/Country: Massachusetts ABV: 9% Serving Type: 12 oz Bottle Look: 9 Pale gold color, GIGUNDO head, nice lacing Smell: 10 Banana, funky yeast, honey, coriander Taste: 9 Up Front: Fruity, sweet, spicy, slight alcohol Finish: Sweet with a dry spicy finish Mouthfeel: 8 Very effervescent, clean and crisp Drinkability: 8.5 The alcohol is well hidden in this monster. Citizens, proceed with caution! Overall Score: 8.9 Value: 9 Cost/12 oz serving: $ 2.40 Overall Impression: This is a good beer, but, it is bordering on a Tripel style rather than a Saison. If I was rating this beer on style alone, it would have received a lower score. At least it's better than the crappy movie of the same name that came out in 1989!

Overall Score: 5.4 Value: 6 Cost/12 oz serving: $ 1.43 Overall Impression: They should call this beer a Blah-Bock! The beer looked better than it tasted. The only saving grace was that my Dad bought it and I didn't. There are probably worse QCB out there, but right now, I can't think of any.
