3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark copper pour with an off white head that quickly fades to nothing. Sweet earthy aroma with a lot honey, hay, and some band aid. Taste is tart, vinous, pomegranate, and honey sweetness. Pretty full body. Nice to try it once but wouldnít seek it out again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
DATE: July 28, 2016... OCCASION: watching our wedding videos (thanks for sending the VCR, Jer!) while celebrating fifteen blessed years of marriage with Shana... GLASSWARE: Affligem goblet.... a dark copper, almost brownish opaque body challenges daylight... the off-white fizzles to a pencil-thin ring, while small clouds circle inside... apple, sour apple, grapefruit, vanilla, honey, grapes, and saltiness--safe to say, I havenít smelled something like this before, although the aroma loosely approximates freshly unwrapped cassette tapes from the eighties... in summation, quite a cornucopia to process... upon first sip, surprisingly active in the mouth... medium-bodied, warming, and dry, with the honeyed finish that provides depth and length to the taste... demonstrative apple, honey and citrus and sour mash... ginger, raisins, dry nuts, and phenol hints develop a complex, almost unworldly profile, one that encourages sip upon sip... a beer worthy of the our milestone anniversary, I cannot help but think this beer is challenging in all the right ways, stirring fruit, spice and lesser elements to develop a taste akin to a Belgian ale but with drastically different draw and depth.. manageable at its 8.5% but formidable as well, with its spiciness erupting with every sip... on sale at A&P Liquors? yes, please...

On tap. Pours a clear light brown bronze with little off-white head and minimal lacing. Smells exactly like a saison. Tastes sweet, some unusual flavors, flowery, honey, actually very nice. The bitterness is mild and the aftertaste is extremely pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From notes. Split this one with Steve at Danís Downtown Tavern on July 01. The pour is a muddy amber color with a couple golden hues shining through. There is an incredibly fizzy white head that falls down and reminds me of a soda. Thatís what it looks like. A beer shouldnít fizz like this. The aroma is incredibly sweet. There is a lot of dark fruit and spiciness to it, like itís a dark fruit-inspired saison. A definite breadiness exists, and a light Belgian malt. The flavor is dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Itís just really Belgian ale dominated. The mouth feel is terrible. Itís thin, yet syrupy, with a very effervescent carbonation that letís the Belgian tendencies just jump off of the tongue. It doesnít end quick enough. This isnít my jam. Not by a long shot.

Leave is to Dogfish. Again you smell and taste every damn ingredient, which is amazing. Itís a great beer, itís perhaps a bit not my style thought because it tastes kinda regular after a while
