COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with European Pilsner malt, German wheat malt and a hefty dose of turbinado sugar in the kettle, this beer clocks in at a hefty 9.14% abv. Despite its strength it has a dry finish and is very drinkable. The traditional Belgian yeast packs this beer with tropical fruit flavors, a mysterious earthiness and an inviting spiciness. In addition, we added grains of paradise, coriander and the peels of fresh clementines. Phil Farrell - a local homebrewer and beer freak – brewed this with me for a “pro-am” competition.

Aurelius (4167) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Sweet caramel Belgian aroma - lots of yeast and malt. Mildy phonolic, tart, medium bitter. Sour, wood-pepper finish. Medium body. A nice warmer on a dank evening. Did well with the Parmesan Chicken.

SpringsLicker (3131) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Pours hazy orange with a fine white head. Sweet malt with some spice in the aroma. Smooth bodied, slightly sweet overall flavor. Not as dry as many Saisons are, but extremely drinkable.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Enjoyed at the Fall Beer Dinner held at 5 Seasons North. Appearance: Pours a hazed orange body with a creamy white head. Why, it looks just a Dreamsicle! Smell: Rustic, sweet-smelling aroma of wheat malts, spiced caramel candy, and fresh orange peel. Taste: Soft wheat bread flavor and sweetness arrives alongside a tart, tropical-minded fruitiness. Hardly any hops, but instead the spice helps to temper the sweetness. There’s a bit of an alcohol kick on the sweet-tart finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Very mild carbonation. Drinkability: A nice saison, albeit a very different kind of saison.

The End of the Chicken. Cask. Hazy, deep golden orange. Foamy, white head. Aroma of heavy dough fresh out of a proof box. Bready, yeasty, & dry ... like an Orval. Flavor is of heavy bread dough. Slight citrus (orange?) essence. Very balanced palate. Heavy bodied. A+
