The New Holland Monkey King Saison presents itself well with a nice color and pleasant smell. It had the wheat smell I expected for it being the farmhouse ale, but the taste was subpar at best. It describes itself as having a peppery taste and I could taste it, but the overwhelming taste was of sour lemon. It was a very light body but not overly carbonated. It just flat out had a terrible aftertaste. I don’t believe in pouring out beers so we were forced to finish it, but I would never recommend this to anyone.
