3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Golden-amber body with a respectable clairty to it and topped with a fine, white head.
Smell: Bready, lightly toasty, lightly sweet-scented maltiness with notes of orchard fruits, raisins, spice, dried herbs, and alcohol.
Taste: Bready and with a sweetness of golden syrup, hinting even at almond sugar. Full fruity accents of Golden Delicious apples and golden raisins. Splash of herbal, floral minded tea. Spicy yeast component as well as the piquant rye character. Medium bitterness. The maltiness return as sugar glazed toast. Pear and banana later on. Some heaviness on the finish, though the carbonation tries to lighten things up.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: It’s pretty good. The parade of saisons is never-ending here at 5 Seasons!

On tap at the brewpub. Musty aroma and earthy gritty flavor. Picking up some red fruit. Nice complexity here that is making this one a more well crafted drink. Bit of an alcoholic bite on the finish and a beautiful red color.

Pours deep and brilliant copper/red. Deep maltiness with elegant touches of fruity, cakey, estery complexity. Finishes warm and very malty. Very tasty strong brew.
