2 Crows Brewing Starflight – Saison at 4.4% ABV | 28 IBU (C$5.89 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 16-Dec-2020, acquired 23-Apr-2021, reviewed 2-May-2021)

Appearance: hazy straw with one fat finger of foamy white head diminishing rapidly to nothing , no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: oak, stone fruit, barnyard funk, floral, phenols. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate funky tart, low bitter. (7/10) Palate: light body, enthusiastic carbonation, dry funky tart finish. (3/5)

The label says “FUNKY PRICKLY DRY” and that’s a fair assessment. The worst you can say about this one is that it’s not pretty. Well, that and the taste isn’t quite as good as the aroma. Don’t get me wrong, I like a nice horseblankety funk as much as the next guy, but there’s a little phenol edge on the back end that reminds me of plastic solvent. It’s not strong, but it’s there, particularly on the tongue, and it drags down the scores for taste and palate. (14/20)
