Bottle thanks to my festivus master: Pours a hazy gold with a white creamy head. Aroma, floral and perfumey notes, some spices, honey. Flavor, some spices, pepper and cloves, lightly sweet malts, bready, spicy and herbal hops on the finish, perfumey throughout, and on the dry side. Very interesting.

12oz bottle purchased from brewery. Pours a beautiful cloudy medium straw. Very nice, spicy aroma. Taste is lovely. It’s a bit difficult for me to describe because I’m not good at picking out individual spices. But it has that lovely spicy "saison" flavour.
