2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 I was very excited to try this! Sweet, syrupy, grainy. Nice honey sweetness, dark fruits, and ALOT of alcohol!! Too much alcohol to enjoy the syrupy flavors.. A big mesh of forgettable mixtures... Finishes with an alcohol bite... Couldn’t dump.. .. Pounded... Gross...! :( I have tried many 9% + brews .. This one had the biggest bite.. Age this brew for a year...... It might have potential !????

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a clear, orange amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is light orange peel, floral honey tones, light cereal.....taste is sweet, with orange, honey, light clove, light pepper, finishing with a lingering sweet bitterness......mouth feel light of medium, sticky,slightly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low, but slight acid present. This is not really a Saison. The beer is much too sweet, has too much alcohol, and is most defInately not at all refreshing. As a Belgian Strong, iti ist rather simple for the dark category, and is MUCH too sweet for the goldens. It is technically well done. But I persieve it as a failed experiment. BJCP 6/3/12/3/6

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Radio Maria. Very hazy golden, thin wispy head that recedes to a ring rather quickly. Aroma is a bit strange, certainly honey sweetness, but some odd sweet pickles too. Palate is estery and very sweet, a little spicy. Too heavy for a Saison, with no yeast character.

On tap at mad mex. Sweet aroma. Hazy yellow brew. Taste is quite hoppy for a saison, even by saison standards.

On tap. Pour is clear golden/brown with a small white head. Aroma is of yeast, booze, and honey. Flavor is of sweet malts, honey, and burning alcohol. Not much going on here besides honey sweetness and booze.

The aroma is malty with honey and yeast. The appearance is orange gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. The beer overall is decent but not great.

This is has a nice collaboration of nice fruity essence with a great assortment of honey. It remind if a mild Belgian triplel. It's for the real drinker

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a rich honey gold with a white head. Nose is fruity, sweet, a bit funky. Definite presence of floral notes, honey, and a touch of funk. Not nearly as funky as a lot of saisons. The high ABV is quite evident on first taste and following sips. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at High Street Grill Mt. Holly NJ. Pours a nice amber with a small white head. Very fruity aroma with a bit of sweet malt. The flavor was a bit too fruity for me. I got a lot of peach and some alcohol. A bit sweet for my liking but that said I enjoyed the uniqueness.
