COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Canadian malted barley, Golding hops, a flavorful Belgian yeast creating a potpourri of flavor. A find sipping beer meant for special occasions...Like Sundown!

Dogbrick (9651) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 03/01/2012. Hazy copper-amber color with a medium white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of candied fruit, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with a somewhat cloying sweetness and notes of fruit syrup, yeast and a touch of hops. The finish is syrupy with a fruit aftertaste. A sipper but not in a good way, there is just too much sweet.

PIcked this up on my way to the Florida Keys - my goal being to try beers I canít get at home ... I was intrigued by the blending of saison and tripel styles ... Doesnít work, in this case, anyway ... heavy cloying sweetness overpowered every other aspect of this brew, Still, itís 10 percent ABV and I WAS on vacation, but next trip I will be staying away from this one.

Yuck! Hated it! Brownish yellow pour with slight, off-white head. Sweet. I mean really sweet! Yuck again! Sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bleeng (1583) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2012
12 oz bottle thanks to Tommy. Bright orange with a fast fading head. Nose is lemony, yeasty. Taste is a bit medicinal, citrusy, a bit sweet and seems heavy bodied for the style. Sticky with a an aggressive alcohol bite at the end. A sipper but I donít want to sip this one all night.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Dull amber. The aroma is spicy (astringent coriander) and fairly yeasty. Malty, a little bit gluey, sweet with cinnamon and other spices in the background. Not particularly refined. A drinkable beer, though, that would be better if it was a bit lighter.

jjgmd (1749) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours hazy rusty golden, with a nice foamy mattress head. Aroma is malty,earthy, fruity and sweet. Taste is sweet and malty, and thirst quenching. Mild alcohol taste despite the ABV, nice appreciable taste of honey. Finish is short, sweet and leaves you wanting more. Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1677) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours amber with a beige head and aroma of spices, malt, and yeast. Flavor is sweet, of malts, spices, yeast, and fruits with the alcohol well hidden at 10%. Good, solid brew that has nice flavor and taste.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 This is great wheat, barley and yeast tasting beer. It does have any strong caramel or roast flavor. just simple, bold and good.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods. Amber, nice hue with slight haze, stable head. Aroma is very familiar, herbal, American saison, St. Somewhere-like. Spicy-floral. Guava and membrillo pastes, with edible flowers. Light palate. The alcohol is completely, admirably well-disguised. The flavors pretty much match the aromas, with the quince pocket of fruit, and getting some lavender too. Yuzu and other mild, non-acidic citrus, plus rip carambola. Very, very sweet. The first few sips seem cloying but then the palate adjusts and then, it manages to be drinkable. Itís admittedly overtone of fruits and flowers without much depth of character, foundation of malt, or undertone highlight., But all together an impressive offering.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 23, 2012
This is strange one indeed. It has the aroma of white pepper and rotted oranges and maybe cough syrup. Itís a 2010 edition which is not old at all for something like this, so I have to imagine. I tried two just to make sure it wasnít an infected bottle. Itís sweet like a mimosa that has nutrisweet mixed in. I have to assume the brewer planned this and chose the psuedo-Bret strand accordingly. Drain pour.
