3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #2238 - 2015.12.10 - Bottle #10 in the 2015 Phillips Snowcase. Pour is a dark brown with a fairly frothy beige head with decent retention. Aroma is light toffee, chocolate, with cocoa puff aroma, mild grassiness. Taste is smooth, malty, and quite light. Decent finish. Pretty good dunkelweizen.

Bottle - Malty, toasty and syrupy notes. Jet black with a light brown small head. Molasses, syrupy dark malts and sweet. A bit too sweet and syrupy for me.

Aroma of roasted malts and dried fruits. Tasty malty, banana , dried fruit, chocolate, dried fruits, wine. In that order.
Does not pour with a massive head, didn’t find it overly carbonated.

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.

Aroma of dark fruits and malts. Dark brown/black pour with no head or lacing. Flavour of roasted wheat and malts, chocolate, dark fruits etc. Balance is off so knocked some points.
