3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Paid $10.49 which is silly because this is yet again another old bottle from that establishment. Amber color with light head retention. Aroma is sour wheat, citrus and stale bread.
Flavor shows light fruit with the old stale malt followed by light oak and old grape juice. Now I am confused as to if the beer was shelved to long or if the brewer intended it to be this way. Lot of grape fruity notes with the stale malt. Drinkable but barely. Damn it, burned again. Warning to folks shopping at Winooski, VT. Some of the brews are on the shelf AWHILE.

#2 review of this beer, tried on tap before. A lot if difference, this much more what I expected.
Bottle. Pours beautiful clear amber with one-finger off-white head. Aroma is spicy and peppery, catching the grapes and some wood. Taste is medium sweet, bit tart. Smooth body and really dry finish. Nice and the wine makes sense.
So much difference between the two of them. This is spicy with wine-notes and color, on tap is was standard, but spicy saison. Have to be the barrels that are re-used?

500 ml bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of straw, oak, caramel, light pepper and light vanilla. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, oak, vanilla and light pepper with a smooth dry lingering oak finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle, ruby-toned with a medium-sized fine head. Phenols in the nose come across as cinnamon, spice, plastic; esters and malt give it a browned banana and apple bake character. Medium-full body with medium= sweetness, strong tartness and gripping acidity delivered by fine natural carbonation and soft malt... it appears higher than 6.5% to me... fusels apparent after breathing seems to explain this. With the sweetness and banana character I’d put it closer to abbey tripel than saison. A sweet but ultimately balanced semi-strong Belgian golden ale that doesn’t come together into anything for me.
