RATINGS: 91   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.17/5   EST. CALORIES: 345   ABV: 11.5%
A swarm of flavor and a stinger at 11.5% ABV. The French saison yeast produces big, estery, phenolic aromas and flavors, while the wildflower honey from Madhava Natural Sweeteners in Longmont CO lends a spicy, sweet aroma with essence of dried fruits. Champagne yeast is also used to complete fermentation and create a dry finish, and a strong malt bill imparts a rich, golden honey color to the ale.

Bottle pour into a snifter. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is very sweet and sugary and near boozy. The taste is very sweet and surprisingly the alcohol is unnoticeable. I didn’t even realize it was 11.5% until I got on here to log my rating. That part is nicely done, but overall the beer just wasn’t my thing. Medium carbonation and slick mouthfeel.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a nice copper color with a two inch beige head. Taste is of malt, caramel, honey, spice and wheat. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a warming finish. Not bad, but a little quirky.

GothGargoyle (2463) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Light brown with a pale head. Aroma is honey, brown sugar, caramel, raisins. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate, warming finish. Taste is caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee. Not bad, but in no way a saison - a Belgian Golden Strong maybe.

Poured a very cloudy orange brown color with a thin off-white head. Aroma has lots of fruit, honey, and yeast notes. Some sweet candy and caramel as well. Taste is very flavorful with lots of fruit, honey, and malts. Alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Finish is a bit malty with some caramel and more honey. Overall the flavors blend pretty well together and it is a good combination.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly transparent golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells pleasantly yeasty and estery. Tastes like it smells with some sweetness. Average on the palate. Drinks fairly easy, especially for the abv.

"A crystalline clear amber colored beer with a big sudsy texture, white head. There’s some hang time. Settles into a moderate ringlet and some film. Wheaty nose. Grapes and sweet honey in the tasting. Not as pleasant as I’d hope for, but the light, medicinal slick bodied beer is drinkable"

Pours clear copper with medium off white head. Floral aromas. Citrus notes as well as a nearly overpowering sweetness a la tropical fruit. I had high hopes for this beer, but it?s unbalanced and rather unremarkable.
