stevoj (3944) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Poured into Duvel tulip, muddy dark amber/orange, with adequate creamy head. Saison herbal aromas beefed up with some savory spices, and some malt evident. Taste follows with the spices taking more of the center stage, not overpowering, but wonderfully accenting the normal saison flavors. Body a bit thicker than normal, but can feel the effervescence.

sonnycheeba (5090) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear amber (when carefully poured given the amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle). Aroma is toasted and caramel malts, spices, fresh bread, orange peel, and faint booze. Flavor is malty and spicy up front with some nice floral hop notes, and touch of alcohol spice, faint citrus, and a nice dry finish. Medium body.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Hazy medium orange-brown Smells like a dirty bathroom, towel that needs to be washed, and raisins. Slightly sour. Less bitter and sweet. Some of the dirty funk shows up in the taste, along with dates and coriander and a light maltiness. Long bitter finish, full of clove. Much easier to drink than the smell would lead you to believe. I like these kind of funky tastes, but this is near the top of what I like. It is good, though. Better the more you drink it.
