Muskoka Brewery Seasons Change (Moonlight Kettle Series 2017) Saison at 6.5% ABV | 25 IBU (C$3.46 at NLC Stavanger, 341 ml, best before 10-Dec-2017, acquired 30-Sep-2017, reviewed 30-Sep-2017)

Appearance: clear pale gold with a short, short-lived fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to nearly nothing, no lacing. (2/5) Aroma: coriander, floral, light raspberry, earthy funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, moderate spice. (6/10) Medium slightly slick body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lightly bitter slightly spicy finish. (3/5)

A bit heavy-handed in the spice, floral, and alcohol notes, in my opinion. The coriander in particular grows and threatens to overwhelm all else. Not very exciting, and too heavy in both flavour and alcohol for my preferred interpretation of the style. (12/20)
