3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark ruby brown with an off white head. A mixture of light and medium dark malts on the nose with some nuts and red fruits. Quite the same in the mouth with a bit more fruit and red wine. This is a super interesting twist on a saison, which would be well served by a bit more concentration. Nice to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy dark amber colour with a big, light beige head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, apricot and herbs. The flavour has more grass, spices, marzipan and alcohol. Slick mouth feel, and has a balanced bitterness. A nice saison, sweet with a nice bitterness. A little too much alcohol flavour maybe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
W aromacie pieprz, przyprawy, lekkie drewno, niezbyt intensywny. W smaku już lepiej, słodowość ciasteczkowa, kremowe odczucie, czerwone owoce, głównie wiśnia z przyprawową goryczką, winogrona, finisz goryczkowo - dziki, alkohol wyczuwalny mimo niewielkiego natężenia. Smaczne.

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?
