Nose of sweet belgian yeast, vanilla, banana, dusty also. Pours hazy amber, some golden notes, nice frothy head and light lace. Somewhat sweet, light banana, clove belgian sweetness, some chocolate. Seems more like a dunkleizen than a saison. Very carbonated and lively, airy and bright.

750, corked and baled. Thanks brian! Pours a burnished dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Caramel and a vinous oaky berry tang on the nose. Creamy medium body with tons of lively carb. A fair bit of mild funk with some minerally bite on the mid palate. Long funky mineral dry finish. Great stuff. Thanks man!

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this 750 ml bottle. The beer pours a murky orange color with a huge white head. The aroma begins with some caramel malt sweetness and then has a nice tart/funky character to it. The flavor is caramel malt with some slight tartness as well as some great citrus fruit such as oranges. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
