3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of sk8viking. Thanks, Rene! Pours a murky, brownish-grapefruit color; off-white head with weblike lacing. Dense aroma, showing plenty of floral esters (hibiscus) and spice (chamomile, with a bit of pepper and ginger). Medium-to-full, chewy mouthfeel: dense bready and sweet sugar cookie notes upfront, with some spice and white pepper drying things out; sweet for a saison, but tasty with a hefty dose of spice. Lengthy, sugary and doughy finish.

750 ml, courtesy of kmweaver. Pours a very cloudy, dull beige color with a thick white head. Honey, light spice, grass and pear in the nose. Flavor starts with notes of honey, some caramel, graininess, flowers and pear. Kind of sweet and full bodied (in overall feel) for a saison. The carbonation isn’t effervescent, pretty subtle.
