Can shared by MrP00tz. Thanks pootzy. Pours hazy golden. Nose of candied and rotten fruits, yeast, and booze. Flavor is slightly sweet, fruity, light hops. A bit of astringency and sweetness in the finish. Not bad, not good. Ok, kinda bad.

16oz can in a Trappist glass. Pours opaque golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of Belgian spicy yeast, some caramel and bread malts, hints of banana, and some floral hops. Flavor has a little too much alcohol and bread. It seems like a Duvel-wannabe that’s just not as good. Still not a bad beer.

16oz can... dark gold with some copper, not a great color, a big light cream head, good retention... the nose is a touch too sweet with too much yeast as well, honey water with yeast... tastes way too yeast with a weird lager finish, easy to drink for 8.5% but not super enjoyable

(can - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Lightly sweet aroma with some mild spice and yeast notes. Sweet malts and spice at the front of the flavor with a peppery yeast finish. Thin and really easy to drink, especially for 8.5%.

Draft at Plan B West Hartford. Pours yellow with a thin white head that leaves trace lacing. Slight bitter spice note on the nose. Tastes like perfumed saison on the tongue. It’s got some bitterness on the finish. Eh!

16oz Can, shared at a party. Nice aroma, of solid, subtle fruits and classic stylistic twang. Fresh. Flavors were crisp and clean. I enjoyed this as an American interpretation of the more classic examples of the style, as it wasn’t too bubblegummy, sweet, nor sticky. It had a pleasant dryness to the heft and a fun range of character. Solid work.
