Hazy dark amber color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy yeast, light spices, ripe fruits, some caramel, and toast. Taste of caramel malts, nuts, toast, peppery spices, and a semi-dry finish.

Thanks Josh for bringing this 750ml bottle over. I would have guessed it was a Unibrou beer based on the label. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of rotten citrus, oakiness, spices, and fruity. Tastes of caramel, fruity, and spices.

Fascinating aroma has quite a bit tropical fruit - banana bubblegum. Flavor has some nice cocoa notes to it. Interesting beer.

Pours a mostly translucent golden amber with a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of childrens tylenol, medicinal cherry, peppery notes, toasted malt, lightly fruity. Flavor of cereal grains, sweet toasted malt, a little sweet for a saison, light peppery notes and tingly carbonation.

Bottle from Julio’s. Pours dark amber, with creamy white head. Aroma is not very powerful, slight fruit notes. Flavor is not like other saisons. Anise notes are present, but not overpowering. Overall, OK.
