Aroma of roasted malts and dried fruits. Tasty malty, banana , dried fruit, chocolate, dried fruits, wine. In that order.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours dark brown with a frothy off white top. Aroma is nutty yeasty and slight chocolate. Taste is again wheat, a slight banana, nutty and chocolate. Pretty good but perhaps a tad too carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very dark pour, nearly black, with virtually no head. Aroma is like a Belgian strong dark, very malty with lots of dark fruits and yeast, plus a touch of hefeweizen spice. Flavour is fairly rich, fruity and yeasty with a lightly tart note at the finish. A lot of alcohol warmth for the ABV; must be that Belgian yeast. Doesn't quite come together for me, but a bold attempt at something a bit different.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown colour with very little head. Aroma is a bit of toastyness but mostly pepperyness from the yeast. Taste is pretty much the same with some nice effervescents. Nice dark saison.
