Sťance is a dark, complexly concocted Saison, rich with earthy hues and flavors. A mild tartness begins the journey, and an underlying hop bitterness sweeps the senses through a newly opened door of the mind, where you will soon find subtle hints of ripe fruit, bringing you to a place few dare to roam.

Just ok. Pours darker than I would expect for a saison but medium bodied. Definite tart cherries at first and then moves on to a spice mid taste and finish. Has a vegetal/ musty nature that doesnít really work for me. Finishes with a somewhat interesting bitterness. Not bad, just not my favorite combination of flavors.

12oz bottle to pint. Pours a dark murky brown. Tastes of toasted bread, burnt raisin and fig. Was not a fan of this.

A dark and complicated ale. Almost like a porter. Not as smokey. Acceptable but not incredible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear brown color with tan head. Nutty, earthy dirt, vegetal, swamp gas aromas. Medium body with average co2. Medium roast malt, dark bread, lightly dry flavors with some dirt, vegetables--not bad.

Looks too dark for a saison...slight spice smell...way more watery than expected..mild compared to smell...unimpressive

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a brown (SRM 20) body....nose is cereal malts, hints of toast, mild hop spice....taste is cereal, with biscuit tones, leading to a moderate, dominant hop bitterness, minimal esters, no fruitiness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation medium. This particular bottle really isnít a Saison, it is more of a Mild or a Northern English Brown in appearance, aroma and flavors. It is a technically nicely done beer with no off aromas or flavors, but it is not a Saison. BJCP 5/2/10/4/5

Pours a deep ruby brown with a smaller bubbly tan head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, dark fruits and light peppery saison notes. Flavor of tart cherries, toasted malt, pepper and caramel.

Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is burnt brown sugar and musty. Flavor is light dried fruit with a bito flat bitter. Medium body with ok carbonation. Not so much for me. Not really bad.

shadey (1927) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Black pour, diminishing spotty head of off white cream. Aroma is a light grassy hops and some sweetness. Flavors are an odd mix of saison and light porter. Ggrassy hops, malt sweetness, and a mild roasty finish. Interesting.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 Too bitter taste. Nice aroma and appearance. Has an ending aroma of coffe and chocolate but starts very bitter.
