The most notable thing here is the spicy finish. It's warm and complements the lighter flavor of the rest of the beer very well. It's flavorful, but doesn't go out of it's way to be an experience outside of the transition from the light fruit hints to the spice at the finish. All in all a good one trick beer that I would drink again any time. Good for all occassions.

Bottle pour clear yellow with champagne bubbles. Nose of clove, spice, caramel malt ,and esters. Taste the same, with some early sweetness. The ending is a little weird, earthy, mineral, then bitter. Didnít get the cilantro or cider. Very saison like.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle obained through trade with watson1977 poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear golden with big fluffy white head. Little lacing, light body, low carbonation, and yeasty aroma. Taste is coriander, cayenne pepper, herbal, some apple, and spice. The ingredients donít meld for me, pass.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours semi clear yellow with a big white, fluffy head. There is solid Retention. The aroma has a nice belgian yeast aroma worth some lemon and spice. Very Saison like. The taste had some citrusy lemon and orange up front followed by some spicy pepper and a less dry than expected finish. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma of spice with hints of fruit. Pours a light clear yellow with mostly lasting white head and moderate laciing. The taste starts out like a Hefe, then spice kicks in and then goes to a grainy blandness, with more spice, and hints of apple in the finish and aftertaste. Medium-light body and soft carbonatin. Overall, glad I tried it, but I wonít try it again.

Saison base, with slight hint of apples on the nose. Not much else going on, a fairly average saison.

Yellow with a white head. Aroma is heavy on the apple cider notes with some spices and alcohol. Flavor is very similar. I get a ton of apples as well as some white pepper and other spices. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap @ Bambinoís, served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours pale orangish amber with thick fluffy head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty, with notes of banana, fresh cut grass, and a hint of sliced apple. Taste is pale caramel malt, thinnish body, sharp yeasty notes, and a dry, clean finish. I honestly have a hard time picking up the cider. Or farro at that. Kind if a pleasantly twisted wit, if you like that kind of thing. Pretty standard fare for Dogfish, which isnít a bad thing.
