4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Capones, pours a very deep and murky cranberry color. Aroma is filled with so much coffee its hard to pick up anything else. Maybe some clove, dark cherry or other spices in there as well as a little yeasty sour saison aroma. Taste is if you took a pretzel and soaked it in colombian blend coffee, sour cherries, wood, cinnamon. Finishes gentle and tasty. Weirdest saison I have had to date but a pretty good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours a slightly hazy amber body with a nice fluffy off-white head. The nose is quite interesting, a good bit of light-roast coffee over a slightly funky farmhouse Saison yeastiness. The flavor is really well balanced between the coffee character and the underlying Saison qualities. More coffee up front, but the funky Saison takes over towards the finish. Not sure itís a combo that I would have ever thought up, but it kinda works in a weird way. Light bodied and soft with nice gentle carbonation. An interesting beer to say the least. Makes me think itís a beer Fantome would have thought up.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Brewpub with Andrew, Brendan and big boy PJ. Pours a hazy amber red body with no head. Aroma is coffee and wheat. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with notes of delicious rich coffee combined with classic saison notes - wheat, citrus, funk, and yeast. Well executed brew combining two styles.

A Java-Expresso rush.
Tastes or roast, coffee, and some spices.
The coffee taste permeates this beer.
