4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @Borefts fest 2012.
Amazing look! Pours dark orange with huge off-white head.
Tropical fruits dominate in aroma, some malt sweetness, not very huge.
Taste is in contrast very intense, huge bitterness upfront, with piny & citrucy tones, unusual combination for saisons.
After warming up a bit, distinct tones of saison appear as well.
Full-bodied, high-carb, amazingly looking beer.

Pours a somewhat dark color for a saison. Burnt orange/amber with an off-white head. Somewhat sweet with a fair amount of toast and bread along with a mild floral note. Some floral and citrus peel notes for the most part. The flavor is a bit sweet with floral and citrus peel hop flavors and a light bitterness. A bit on the sweet and malty side for a saison.
