COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 ounce bottle from the Night of the Dead mixed pack. Pours a clear dark red-brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of doughy malts, nuts, a bit of caramel. The taste is chocolate, nuts, spice, mild tart fruits. Thin-medium bodied, high carbonation.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle at Paulís for feetsballing. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a thin white head. Smells of fruit and plums, a bit of oxidization, bready. Just on the thin side of medium-bodied, some tart malt, more weird plum. Tart and strange. Oxidized and boring.

phaleslu (6295) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
12 oz. bottle from a friendís fridge during their party. A 4.4% saison sounded like it would hit the spot. This was something different. Pours a dark but clear brown with a finger of beige head. The aroma is a sort of muddled earthy, toasty, fruity and sweet notes. The flavor has burnt toast, dried leaves, nuts, and peanut brittle. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, very toasty mouthfeel. Nothing in common with any other saison Iíve had, so based on my expectations, this was a letdown. But standing alone, itís not bad.

DrSilverworm (6035) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Pours a dark clear brown color. Thin khaki head. Few bits of lace. Some chocolate, dark fruit, spice in the nose. Cola, toasty malt, some brown sugar and dark spices. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft / crisp carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. Moderate bitter, lightly spicy. Hint of honey. A decent dark saison, better than expected.

BVery (5991) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle. Very dark pour with a small beige head. Roasted malt and a bit of sweet fruit on the nose. Watery palate, no depth to the taste. A miss.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Draft at Rattle. Pours amber brown with an off white head. Toasted bread, medium sweetness, and light spicy yeast. Balanced, but a bit bland and uninteresting. Not bad.
