Draft at the brewpub. Very interesting, deserves points for uniqueness. The strongest saison I have ever had. Sweet fruit flavor with some yeast. Light bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Definitely a slow sipper, but great with food.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
5oz sample from a flight. Pour is iced tea with a finger of beige head. Nose is mint, light berry, malt, and a bit of funk. Taste is sour caramel, tart berries, and earthy funk. There is also a dominant warming in the chest as this beast settles down into the depths. I am not sure how many beers I’ve had with brettanomyces, so I don’t know if these characteristics are normal, but this was a quite a strange brew. I did enjoy it though, but probably couldn’t drink more than a glass at a session.
