75 cl bottle @ home, 10 months after bottling. Amber to red color, hazy. Big, dense, off white head with long retention and good lacing. Aroma’s: sweet fruit, pine, some citrussy sourness. Retronasal it’s herbal, drop/laurel, sweet fruits, piney hops, toffee/caramel, fruitcake. Flavor is medium sweet with a hint of fruity sourness. Body is rather full, thick, syruppy, velvetty. Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes herbal, hop-aromatic, but hardly bitter. More a barley wine than a saison, but I quite like it.
